Molecular Products provides leading technologies for gettering applications and orthohydrogen to parahydrogen conversion.
Gettering: Ionex Type Ag 400 is an X-type silver zeolite that is a highly efficient getter material used in the vacuum annulus of cryogenic containers, panels or transfer lines. Ag 400 will remove gaseous hydrogen, which slowly outgasses from the steel container shell into the vacuum space, in order to preserve ultrahigh vacuum levels. Ag 400 is a high-quality, cost-effective option for gettering applications.
Orthohydrogen to parahydrogen conversion: Ionex Type OP Catalyst is an unusually effective catalyst for converting orthohydrogen to parahydrogen. It facilitates reliable, continuous production of liquid hydrogen having high parahydrogen content. The necessity for additional, expensive refrigeration equipment to absorb the heat of conversion at the storage site is eliminated since liquid parahydrogen is transferred to storage directly from the liquefier where the catalysis takes place.
