Sundyne makes it faster, easier and more cost effective to purchase, deploy and maintain PPI diaphragm compressors for hydrogen applications

This week at ACHEMA, Sundyne will showcase how its compressors and pumps are used for hydrogen applications in Hall 8, Booth D7

FRANKFURT, Germany, August 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Sundynea leader in the design and manufacture of critical pumps and compressors, today announced a series of packaging enhancements that make it easier, faster and more cost-effective to purchase, deploy and maintain diaphragm compressors. PPI series 9. This week at ACHEMA in Frankfurt (Hall 8 Stand D7), Sundyne demonstrates how its compressors and pumps are used for Hydrogen applications, as well as other applications required by process industries.

New packaging options provided with the PPI 9 series include instrumentation optimized for reliable compressor operation. The arrangement of the engine and the compressor on the same skid has been simplified to reduce the overall dimensions. Recognizing the cost of downtime to operators, a series of lifting rails have been added to the skid, which facilitate faster compressor maintenance. A new curtain enclosure is now available when weather protection is required. Additionally, secondary skid options are now available for a closed loop cooling system.

“We received a lot of feedback from our customers, which the team used in designing our packaging. The features we added to our 9-Series PPI are designed to facilitate a drop-in capability that makes it easier for customers to deploy, and more cost effective to service our compressors once they are running,” said Sundyne’s Vice President of Hydrogen Compressors and PPI, Michael O’Neil. “This week, we look forward to seeing our customers and prospects at ACHEMA and discussing how our PPI compressors add value to their hydrogen processing applications.”

The chemical and pharmaceutical industries have a long history of processing hydrogen to manufacture products and they also produce hydrogen as a by-product of their operations. For transportation applications, fuel cell technology makes industrial vehicles and long-haul buses emission-free. Industrial markets see hydrogen as a potential alternative for heating commercial buildings. Sundyne’s PPI diaphragm compressors are preferred for hydrogen applications, due to the following features:

  • High compression ratio: PPI diaphragm compressors are designed to meet the pressures required by mobility applications and industrial decarbonization projects. Multiple compressors in the product family ensure a custom fit for a wide range of hydrogen applications.

  • Product Purity: PPI compressors feature triple diaphragm assemblies that ensure the process gas is isolated from the hydraulic oil. This ensures absolute process purity, which is essential for fuel cell applications, as the slightest contamination can damage the fuel cell.

  • Reliability: All process gas wetted parts in a PPI compressor are made from corrosion-resistant alloys, making them ideal for hydrogen processing, as well as other applications involving dangerous and toxic gases.

  • Environmental Safety: Gaskets on PPI compressors ensure no process gas leaks into the atmosphere, and PPI’s leak detection system immediately detects diaphragm or seal failure.

  • Reduced Energy Costs: PPI’s heavy-duty crankcases and transmissions are specifically designed to deliver maximum compression at the lowest energy cost.

  • Compliance with industry standards: All PPI compressors are API 618 compliant.

  • Explosion-Proof Certification: The packaging meets various standards that meet the requirements of explosion-proof environments, worldwide.

  • Custom Engineering: Sundyne works with customers to manufacture custom PPI systems that are optimized for the gas pressure, molecular weight, heat, corrosion and speed of each customer’s application. Sundyne uses the latest technology in solids modeling and FEA analysis to ensure that all functional components are engineered and tested to minimize wear, improve sealing, and reduce corrosive and erosive effects.

  • Global Support: Sundyne’s global channel partner network provides fast, comprehensive support (and spare parts) anywhere in the world.
