by Druck

The Druck UNIK 5000H Hydrogen Focused Pressure Sensing Platform is a high-performance configurable solution to pressure measurement, adding Hydrogen compatibility. Druck silicon technology and analog circuitry enable best-in-class performance for stability, low power, and frequency response. The platform allows for easy construction of a sensor to match specific needs. This high-performance, configurable solution to pressure measurement employs modular design and lean manufacturing techniques to offer a multitude of possible product configurations. 

Challenges in hydrogen pressure measurement:

Exposure to hydrogen gas can impact the performance of a pressure sensor, specifically via the processes of hydrogen permeation and embrittlement; hence, a hydrogen pressure sensor's key design aspects need consideration to maintain accuracy and stability.

Optimized for hydrogen applications:

The stainless steel 316L construction of the UNIK5000H provides excellent resistance to hydrogen embrittlement. Permeation can affect the performance of all sensor technologies, and the UNIK5000H uses an optimized barrier coating that limits hydrogen permeation and is unaffected by impurities.

UNIK5000 Applications Include:

  • Fuel cell tests
  • Hydrogen production
  • Filling stations
  • Gas networks
  • Hydrogen pipelines
  • Hydrogen distribution
  • Hydrogen filling stations
  • Universities and research
  • Hydrogen storage
  • Bulk hydrogen transport
