Xebec Adsorption Inc., a provider of gas purification, generation and filtration solutions for the hydrogen, natural gas, field gas, helium, oxygen and nitrogen markets, has introduced a complete range of high-performance, Fast Cycle Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) Systems capable of ultra-pure hydrogen purification of up to 6.0 hydrogen grade (99.9999%).
Launched under its H2X Solutions brand, Xebec’s Fast Cycle PSA hydrogen purifier range has 27 standard models starting at 3 SCFM (5 NCMH) up to 18,000 SCFM (30,000 NCMH), operating within a pressure envelope of 50 - 450 psig. Multiple train and multi-valve machines can be combined to obtain flow capacities of up to 72,000 SCFM (120,000 NCMH).
With the increasing demand for compact, smaller flow, high purity hydrogen purifiers, the low flow end of the Xebec range contains 4 ultra-compact models that boast an extremely small footprint, delivering high purity product. They come skid-mounted, loaded with adsorbents, ready to install.
Xebec’s Fast Cycle PSA units are based on proprietary rotary valve technology; one rotary feed valve is connected to the bottom of each bed and one rotary product valve is connected to the top of each bed. Feed gas flows through at least one bed while, simultaneously, purified product gas flows from the bed to the product line. Other flows are similarly connected through the rotary valve for exhaust, purge, equalizations, etc.
