Haskel manufactures a full range of Hydrogen handling equipment, including hydraulic and pneumatic-driven gas boosters, high-pressure valves and fittings, and system components. We specialize in high-pressure technology and offer an extensive background of knowledge and experience with Hydrogen applications, backed with a solid reputation for providing a superior product, known for quality and reliability. We use specific materials designed for Hydrogen use based on pressure and flow requirements to address embrittlement issues metals face when exposed to a hydrogen environment. Embrittlement can be aggravated by high-pressure and hydrogen purity, leading to loss of ductility, and component failure at much lower stress levels than would normally be expected.

Haskel’s latest innovation, the H-Drive Hydraulic Driven Gas Booster, offers superior design and ease of integration. The H-Drive gas booster series sets the standard for functionality, availability and reliability. The modular design is available in single booster units or integrated into a complete skid assembly. Applications Designed primarily for Hydrogen Gas Compression, the booster is ideal for hydrogen high-pressure gas storage and refueling, and delivers everything you have come to expect from the world’s leader in high-pressure generation
