The Aptus plant, producing 100 Nm3/h of high purity hydrogen will be located at one of Pilkington’s U.S. sites.
“We are pleased to have been selected by a leader in the float glass industry,” said David Cepla, President of HyRadix. “The float glass industry has demanding product reliability requirements and this installation says a lot about the maturity and reliability of the Aptus product. With the installation of the Aptus unit before year-end we will have operating plants in each of our main targeted industries; float glass production, edible oils hydrogenation, and metals annealing.”
“Our team sees an opportunity for an increasing role for on-site hydrogen generation not only in North America, but also in float plants in other parts of the world, particularly sites in developing countries or remote locations,” said David Robinson, manager of Pilkington North America’s, Laurinburg (NC) plant. “We thoroughly reviewed the Aptus technology and feel it offers the performance we require. We’re anxious to get it installed so we can begin to realize further process efficiencies.”
