NEA|HOFER TKH Hydrogen Piston Compressor


  • Hydraulically driven hydrogen piston compressor
  • Designed and manufactured for oil-, leakage- and technically abrasion-free compression to fuel hydrogen vehicle tanks of 1,000 bar max
  • For the compression of non-corrosive gases, such as hydrogen, helium, argon, nitrogen, carbon-dioxide and ethylene
  • For small volume flows and high pressures, as e.g. required for light vehicle fuel stations
  • Perfect complement to ensure flexibility of demand and energy security with H2

NEA|HOFER TKH Hydrogen Piston Compressor

  • NEA|HOFER hydrogen piston compressors are available either as complete units, including a base frame, a power unit, pulsation dampers, coolers, (automatically or manually-operated) valves, instruments and a control unit (optional), – or without peripheral equipment, ready to be installed in your system.
  • All NEA|HOFER hydrogen piston compressors are subjected to a test run under load at NEA|HOFER, during which the operating data are recorded and documented.

Key features

  • Maximum discharge pressure of approx. 3,000 bar (45,000 psi)
  • For start-stop applications (volatile scenarios)
  • Number of strokes per minute easily to be controlled via the hydraulic control unit to ensure efficient capacity control
  • Exceptionally easy to maintain: piston packing to be replaced in 10 to 30 minutes depending on compressor size
  • Hydraulic unit is connected through a gastight wall.
  • Explosion-proof hydraulic units available on special request
  • Small footprint
  • Due to the arrangement of stages above one another, ideally suited for the installation in containers

Application areas

  • Hydrogen services
  • Hydrogen refueling stations

Project cases

  • Since 2005 for H2 services and HRS with more than 100 units installed in Europe, Asia and North America to refuel mainly light vehicles and buses.
  • Installation for HRS to refuel busses during Olympic Winter Games in 2002
  • Market leader in installations for HRS of light verhicles in South Korea
