Power+Energy sells hydrogen purifier business to SAES Pure Gas

Power+Energy Inc (P+E) of Ivyland, PA, USA has sold the intellectual property and all other rights to manufacture and market its palladium micro-channel purifiers to SAES Pure Gas Inc of San Luis Obispo, CA, USA.

P+E says that its future business focus will be on providing products and technologies to the growing markets for syn-gas and hydrogen generation, separation and analysis.

“We are looking forward to fully supporting the transition of the palladium hydrogen purifiers from Power + Energy to SAES Pure Gas,” says P+E’s CEO Peter Bossard.

SAES Pure Gas will expand its manufacturing facility at its San Luis Obispo plant to build the palladium micro-channel purifiers for ultra-high-purity hydrogen applications. P+E will continue to build purifiers for SAES Pure Gas at its Ivyland plant until the SAES Pure Gas facility has been completed and will continue to provide warranty support for its existing purifier customers.

“The palladium membrane technology fits perfectly within the purification portfolio of SAES Pure Gas,” believes SAES Pure Gas’ CEO Tim Johnson, “in conjunction with our other ultra-high-purity technologies for hydrogen (adsorber, heated getters) and other bulk gases which include nitrogen, argon, helium, ammonia, CDA and oxygen”, he adds. “This acquisition comes at a crucial moment for palladium membrane technology, with the increased use of hydrogen within the electronics industry.”
