Helping Power Plants Keep Their Cool With Hydrogen Gas

July 26, 2021
Learn how FCI’s thermal flow meters help electric power plants efficiently monitor hydrogen gas and maintain safety in this case study.

In all-electric power-generation plants, the fuel source of choice heats a large boiler, which creates steam that drives turbine blades to rotate. Hydrogen is the industry’s most efficient coolant, particularly for generators over 100 mW because hydrogen has a 15 times higher heat/thermal conductivity efficiency compared to air.
