Hydrogen diaphragm compressors and hydrogen fuel cell refueling stations; solar panel manufacturing; hydrogen generation via wind power
Renewable energy and energy efficient technology are the keys to creating a cleaner environment. As a hydrogen compressor manufacturer, PDC Machines’ high pressure diaphragm compressors are instrumental in the development of clean, renewable energy sources like hydrogen fuel cells systems, solar power, wind energy and biomass power.
Fuel cell technology
PDC Machines has long been a proponent of hydrogen as an energy carrier. Over the years we have partnered with the largest gas producers and technology companies to create practical and commercial worldwide acceptance of this concept. The success of these partnerships is well documented as our compressors are the preferred choice in more than 110 high profile hydrogen refueling stations currently in use for vehicles, buses and material handling.
PDC Machines continues to pursue the goal of cost effective solutions in delivering high pressure hydrogen compressors. We are proud to be taking an active role as a component supplier, promoting the growth of commercial hydrogen refueling stations. PDC Machines is actively refining and improving our technology and manufacturing methods used for 350 and 700 bar gas compression to enable commercialized solutions to take hold in the emerging marketplace.
Our clients include Air Liquide, Air Products and Chemicals, Air Water, Arizona Public Service, Centre for Renewable Energy Sources (CRES), Greece, DaimlerChrysler AG, Dynetek Industries, Energy Conversion Devices, H2 Logic, Honda, Hyradix, Hydrogenics, ISE Research, Linde, Nippon Sanso, Proton onsite, Plug Power, Quantum Technologies Worldwide, Schatz Energy Research, SunLine Transit Agency, Teledyne Energy Systems, The Japan Steel Works, and many more.
PDC Machines’ compressors re-circulate process gases for the production of polysilicon and other solar panel coatings and substrates. They also compress gases for crystalline and thin film photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules for solar energy applications.
“The solar industry will advance through a rapid transition in the development and research of materials, devices and processes. PDC Machines, Inc compressors enable further advancements in our production efficiencies and enable us to decrease fabrication costs beyond that of traditional compressors, ultimately building a more competitive solar industry.” — AE Polysilicon Corporation.
With over 30 years of experience in high-pressure hydrogen compression system integration and process knowledge, we are the preferred source for component and systems packaging for hydrogen fueling applications.
