Dedicated to innovation and environmentally friendly technology, RIX Industries has engineered ten industrial hydrogen compressors. These compressors feature heavy-duty crosshead construction in a vertical cylinder arrangement with totally oil-free compression up to 6000 PSIG. With up to five stages of oil-free compression, these compressors will be used for storing high-pressure hydrogen, formulating renewable fuels, and re-hydrogenation of spent motor oil.
RIX Industries is a leader in oil-free, high-pressure compressor technology and applies its non-lubricated, state of the art designs to construct a variety of custom-made compressors. RIX compressors deliver oil-free hydrogen boosts that prevent oil carryover into the processed hydrogen, thus preventing contaminants from entering the final application of the gas.
When the compressor is used, hydrogen is taken from a liquid source and stored as a pure gas to prevent contaminants from entering the vehicle system and fouling the fuel cell. The compressor stores the hydrogen at high pressures at the filling station until it is needed.
These compressors are usually multi-stage units with large bearings, con rods, and crankshaft to handle the high rod loads that result from the high pressures. The valves are sized specially to handle the high flows in the relatively small cylinder heads. From beginning to end of the process, RIX compressors produceoil-free gaseous hydrogen in a controlled environment that prevents any oil carryover or contamination into the processed gas.
Refinery research facilities and renewable fuel production plants need high-pressure for their reformulations. The RIX frames are excellent choices for theseapplications, offering oil-free compression and the flexibility to provide high pressures with various inlet hydrogen pressures.
