Hydrogen Generators for Meteorology

A new range of hydrogen generators developed by Johnson Matthey Metals was introduced at the recent Meteorex ’;77 equipment exhibition held in Hamburg to coincide with two important international meteorological conferences organisedby the World Meteorological Organisation. These generators, which have been designed specifically for civilian use, havelower rates of output than the military generators which were the subject of an earlier article in this Journal, although the method of hydrogen production and its purification using a palladium-silver diffusion unit are the same. Capable of working in environments not suitable for some other types of generator, these units can produce hydrogen at a cost which in many situations is considerably cheaper than other sources.
