Diaphragm compressors for argon, ethylene, fluorine, helium, hydrogen, oxygen, neon, nitrogen, silane, sour gas, TFE, xenon and other gases. PDC Machines’ compressors are used in virtually every industry in which high-purity, rare, or hazardous gases are utilized.
Two-stage PDC-13-300-3750 fully instrumented high pressure reciprocating diaphragm compressor for helium recovery. Located in Brazil, this helium compressor fills tube trailers boosting pressure from 1.5 bara to 251 bara. Flow rate is 97 Nm3/hr. Power is 56 kW.
Single-stage duplex compressor PDC-4-3500-3500 complete with instrumentation and controls and closed loop water cooling system for Cylinder filling. Delivering hydrogen at 145 Nm3/hr based on 1000 psi suction, 2400 psi discharge (68 barg, 165 barg), 15 hp (11 kW) motor.
PDC-4-800-3500, 25 hp (18 kW) two-stage fully instrumented high pressure reciprocating diaphragm compressor for transferring breathing grade mixtures of helium and oxygen for use with its Saturation Diving Systems. Using the compressing in conjunction with a blender, the system can blend its own gas and help eliminate the need for large amounts of pre-mixed gas, which saves storage space and weight. This compressor is used every day while the system is in the Diving mode.
Hydrogen fuel cells for material handling.
Two-stage hydrogen diaphragm compressor supplied to Air Liquide for 350 and 700 bar re-fueling, as part of it’s hydrogen refueling station located in Korea for the Korea Automobile Testing & Research Institute (KATRI).
Diaphragm compressors serve an important role in the evolution of alternative fuel, renewable energy and fuel cell applications
PDC Machines has long been a proponent of hydrogen as an energy carrier. Over the years we have partnered with the largest gas producers, technology and research companies to create practical and commercial worldwide acceptance of this concept. The success of these partnerships is well documented as PDC Machines’ hydrogen compressors are the preferred choice in more than 110 high profile hydrogen stations currently in use for vehicles, buses and material handling.
“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.”
