Efficient solutions – GEMÜ is reinforcing its presence in the hydrogen sector

Electrolysis is a crucial step in hydrogen production and requires a great deal of treated water and electrical current. GEMÜ has established an excellent reputation in the area of water treatment. Drawing on its many years of experience in this sector, the valve specialist are an active participant in various hydrogen projects around the world. A prominent example is the "Electrolysis made in Baden-Württemberg" development project, wherein GEMÜ worked together with the Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) in Stuttgart to successfully implement a system with an impressive electrolysis output of up to 1 megawatt. 

Hydrogen as a medium place stringent requirements on valves. Above all, the small molecular size of the volatile gas quickly becomes a challenge when selecting materials. GEMÜ provides expertise advise to guide customers in selection of the right valve to ensure correct choices of material and corresponding approvals. For this project, high-quality GEMÜ globe valves and ball valves were used. The GEMÜ 537 manually operated globe valve was chosen with a special handwheel in accordance with ATEX requirements. The GEMÜ B42 pneumatically operated ball valve with ATEX was used in the project in different sizes and some with oil and grease free assembly, cleaned on the medium side to avoid contamination. The versatile GEMÜ range of valves, measurement and control systems consistently plays a decisive role in this project and others similar to it. For example, GEMÜ plastic diaphragm valves and flowmeters have been successfully used in offshore hydrogen electrolysis projects in France, as have GEMÜ valves in a large-scale project for water treatment via ion exchangers. 

The valve specialists at GEMÜ are continuously working to develop its product range to satisfy the requirements for numerous applications, such as water treatment for various electrolysis processes or gas treatment for processing or storage. GEMÜ is proud of the projects that have already been successfully implemented in the hydrogen sector and looks to the future with confidence. The valve specialist continues its efforts to offer innovative solutions in the hydrogen sector and to actively contribute to creating a sustainable future.
