Hydrogen Generators

Parker Balston® Hydrogen Generators eliminate the need for expensive, dangerous, high pressure cylinders of hydrogen in the laboratory. It is no longer necessary to interrupt important analyses to change cylinders.  Generator flow capacities of up to 1200 cc/min. of ultra-high purity hydrogen are available.  Parker Balston® Hydrogen Generators are compact benchtop instruments designed for use in the laboratory or in the field.

Parker Balston® Hydrogen Generators offer many special features to ensure safe and convenient operation. These features include low-water audible alarms to indicate when the water reservoir needs filling and automatic shutdown to protect expensive laboratory equipment.
