Parker Hannifin has struck an agreement to manufacture co-branded process analysis systems integrating H2scan’s hydrogen monitoring technology and aimed at refineries and petrochemical, fertilizer, ammonia and hydrogen production plants. In the agreement, Parker’s Instrumentation Products Division (IPD), based in Huntsville, Ala., is also private-labeling H2scan’s line of area leak detection products targeted at battery room, refinery, hydrogen storage and nuclear energy applications in worldwide markets.
The co-branded process systems incorporate more than 11 different hydrogen process monitors from Valencia, Calif.-based H2scan, which supplies hydrogen leak detection and process gas measurement solutions. The analyzers are built on H2scan’s miniaturization technology, which Parker IPD says fits well with its IntraFlow NeSSI-based, SP76-compliant substrate fittings. Parker IPD handles final testing, field calibration and customer deliveries under the agreement.
The companies are looking at the partnership to initiate a long-term alliance. They first cooperated on a BP project, supplying process analysis systems featuring both companies’ technologies. The first co-branded systems already have been built and shipped to petroleum industry customers, according to Parker.
