Uniquip are able to assist with engineering, design and supply of equipment used to produce, purify or consume hydrogen. We look after all areas such as process, mechanical design, structural design, electrical, instrumentation, hazardous area classification and any other disciplines required.
There are a great deal of innovative processes emerging to produce hydrogen. However the stream is normally not yet suitable for use. Typically the hydrogen rich streams from these processes would contain CO, CO2, H2S, H2O and N2. Through the use of technologies such as water shift reactors, proprietary catalysts, membranes, amines, molecular sieves and pressure swing absorption, the hydrogen can be purified in a manner fit for the end use, such as in a fuel cell. Biogas production can also lead to streams with similar impurities which need to be removed.
Once purified, hydrogen has a great deal of uses. Uniquip can assist in modifying plants in order to make use of hydrogen streams. Some the areas where we can provide assistance are:
- Modifying vessels, columns and heat exchangers to handle the varied composition, volume flow rate, pressures and temperatures that arise. We have world class technologies for brownfield modifications of equipment.
- Process, mechanical and hazardous area reviews
- Detailed design of plant modifications (piping, instrumentation, controls, process equipment etc.)
- The direct combustion of hydrogen
