Gas Generating Cells

Gas Generating Cells

Generation of high-purity hydrogen in button cell design for, e.g. dosing applications

Gas Generating Cells from VARTA

For displacement of any kind of liquids, gels, pastes and granules or for analytics or sensing with ultrapure H2, VARTA's Hydrogen Gas Generating cells are the right choice. Easy to use and portable, as without any energy source, you get 150 ml, 300 ml or more ultrapure H2 at high back pressure.


Small, compact and safe Hydrogen source

For innovative application design of various portable and energy independent applications - VARTA offers Hydrogen Gas Generating cells with the following features

  • Mechanical energy reservoir and gas pressure source
  • Rate of H2 gas volume generated is proportional to discharge current  (inversely proportional to discharge resistor)
  • Gas pressure can be used to transport liquids, gels, pastes or granules
  • High output of Hydrogen (for dosing, displacement)
  • Ultrapure Hydrogen
    (for analytics, sensing, leakage detection, ...)
  • Operation over a wide temperature range
  • Various assemblies possible
  • Leading provider in this special electrochemical cell segment
  • Over 25 years approved and reliable high quality GGCell production
  • Made in Germany
  • Mercury-free
