Development of a hydrogen generation cartridge

Our client asked:

Our client needed to develop and manufacture an actively pumped hydrogen cartridge for its portable fuel cell system.

The project story:

  • The client had decided on chemistry to evolve hydrogen by adding water to a hydride
  • Sagentia Innovation developed the active pumping and dosing system
  • We developed a test-bed system to determine the critical flow & environmental parameters to generate H2
  • We determined the control system to evolve H2 at the correct rate for the fuel cell
  • Delivered working demonstrators

Results: deliverables and outcomes

  • The design was compact enough to fit within the envelope of the fuel cell
  • The client understood the control parameters for future iterations
  • The product passed all safety regulations to allow use on aircraft
  • The product was launched on time and on budget
