Replacing Helium with Hydrogen for Meteorological Ballon Filling

The Meteorological Technology World Expo (MET EXPO) is an important event organized for the "who's who" in weather applications.

The expo is a global attraction that brings together stakeholders who are interested in exploring and identifying advanced weather forecasting techniques and enhancing the accuracy of climate-change measurement services and technologies. The MET EXPO, now in its sixth year, is graced by 3,000 attendees and 200 companies from more than 100 countries.

Dual Advantages of Hydrogen

Hydrogen gas provides dual benefits of reliable sourcing and low cost and hence, it has been extensively used as a lift gas to substitute helium in meteorological processes.

Nel Hydrogen’s gas generators require only water and electricity, and they generate hydrogen in a safe and efficient manner, whenever and wherever required. These gas generators are rugged and can be easily supplied to remote locations where delivered lift gas supply may be unavailable.

In comparison to other hydrogen supply methods, the PEM systems available from Nel Hydrogen are compact, need minimal maintenance, and have no hazardous chemicals, and ensure the highest on-stream time.

Benefits of OnSite Hydrogen Generation for Balloon Filling:

Onsite hydrogen generation offers the following benefits:

  • Compact
  • Safe
  • Reliable
  • Convenient
  • Cost-Effective
