HyGear sees increase demand for small scale gas recovery


Arnhem – HyGear, a supplier of industrial gases through on-site generation technology sees an increase demand in the recovery of gas.

Traditional gas suppliers focus on selling as much gas as possible to boost revenues and margins, but HyGear approaches the market differently. The company focuses on supplying the market in the most cost-effective and environmentally responsible way. One key element in this strategy is to generate most of the industrial gases at the customers site to reduce the need for trucking, the associated costs and environmental impact. Another focus is to recycle as much of the spent gases and feed them into the process again.

The gas recovery system, Hy.REC, was initially developed for the flat glass industry to recover and clean hydrogen and nitrogen from the tin bath and feed it back into process. The amount of mixed gases that can be recovered is up to 700 Nm3 per hour. Following the company’s extension in its industry portfolio, HyGear’s dedicated team of experts work continuously to tailor the Hy.REC technology for applications in metal treatment, food production, and semiconductor as well.

As the requirements for these new applications are with different gases, flow, pressure, and contaminants, a new approach had to be taken towards the feed of the recycled gases back into the process. Therefore, the Hy.REC is often integrated with HyGear’s gas mixing technology, the Mix.GEN that was launched last year.

“Our key philosophy has always been that if we can help our customer save costs in their production processes, either by supplying gases more efficiently or by reducing the absolute amount of gas needed, the market will grow towards us. Hy.REC technology is a key element in that strategy and we are happy to conclude more companies have come to realise we are on a pathway of changing the industry,” says Marinus van Driel, HyGear’s CEO.
