NTM Sensors to Release SenseH2(TM) Hydrogen Sensor

NTM Sensors, a unit of NexTech Materials, Ltd., declares the release of its innovative SenseH2™ hydrogen sensor in September, 2010 for large-scale manufacture and supply to the customers.

Hydrogen is commonly deployed in most of the industrial processes as a reducing agent. Hydrogen is discharged from the lead batteries upon its damage or impairment. It is the major fuel in PEM cells. Hydrogen is explosive in the range of 4% or its higher concentration in the atmospheric air and it is necessary to install hydrogen sensors in such locations to detect whether hydrogen levels have reached the Lower Flammability Limit (LFL).

The operation of SenseH2™ is based on a chemical-resistant ceramic technology for advanced hydrogen level identification. According to Dr. Lora Thrun, NexTech Materials’ Director of Commercialization, the SenseH2™ exhibits constant performance in broad ranges of temperature in the order of -20° C to 80° C, covering humidity in a wide range from 5% to 95%. The unique sensor is resistant to flammable gases such as carbon-monoxide and methane and shows rapid responsiveness and re-storation within less than five seconds. It is least affected by signal intensity during constant exposures and is not susceptible to flow rates in the range of 5m per seconds.

NTM Sensors has submitted the application for UL, ATEX and CE certifications for their SenseH2™ product and is likely to get authorization by November 2010. The product will be demonstrated at the San Antonio-based Fuel Cell Seminar and Exposition at Texas from 19th to 21st of October, 2010.
