The Hy.REC®mix recovers a significant fraction of the hydrogen-nitrogen gas mixture so it can be reused in the process. HyGear has designed the system on low operating pressure to ensure low electricity consumption.
Significant amounts of the hydrogen-nitrogen gas mixture are – in combination with pollutants – left at the exit of industrial processes and left unutilised. The Hy.REC®mix system can recover this used and polluted mixed gas atmosphere from the process. By feeding the polluted gas mixture into HyGear’s Gas Recovery System, a significant fraction of the hydrogen and nitrogen can be recovered and reused as a new reductive gas mixture.
Since the economical viability of industrial gas recycling systems depends on the value of the recovered gas in relation to the energy consumption of the system, the Hy.REC®mix is designed to consume the lowest possible electricity, which results in the highest economical rate of return. Key part of the integrated post-treatment module is the advanced Temperature Swing Adsorption (TSA) with ultralow pressure drop to further reduce operational expenses.
- Significant cost reduction
- Increased atmosphere refreshment rate
- Improved product quality
- Reduced environmental impact
- Low electricity consumption
- Improved reliability of gas supply
- Integration with gas mixing station
- Autonomous and safe operation
The Hy.REC®mix is developed to recover the gas mixtures from the tin bath in float glass production. With small changes, it can be tailored to other applications for the recovery of hydrogen-nitrogen gas mixtures as well.
