RIX is taking an active role in the developing hydrogen industry by supplying both high-pressure and low-pressure oil-free hydrogen and syn-gas compressors. RIX shipped compressors last year from 3 HP up to 125 HP, at pressures up to 7,000 psig, for hydrogen service, and a number of recent orders are currently being built. Other compressors shipped earlier this year are being used to feed reformers producing hydrogen. Many of these compressors had sealed crankcases. RIX has a number of new designs that offer competitive options for oil-free and high-pressure hydrogen and natural gas service.
