Over the past few years, Hystorsys has developed a new kind of hydrogen compressor. The HYMEHC has many advantages over conventional compressors (such as the diaphragm and piston compressors) as this thermal compressor has no moving parts, potentially low maintenance cost and compresses the hydrogen in a silent and vibrationless manner. The operation cost can be minimised if waste heat is available as the system utilise thermal energy for the compression work. The Total Cost of Operation (TCO) is therefore very low. Currently, the HYMEHC is delivered in the range 1 Nm3/h up to 12 Nm3/h. As the design is flexible, the HYMEHC compressor can be delivered in sizes up to potentially 30 Nm3/h within the near future.

The thermal metal hydride based hydrogen compressor is developed and delivered together with a number of valuable partners:
