Summary

 
Object and purpose of research.Development and implementation of the totally new (for Russian industry) technology of hydrogen extraction from hydrocarbon fuel, with comprehensive testing and development of prototype reformer producing extra-pure hydrogen through steam reforming of hydrocarbon fuel with hydrogen extraction from the reaction zone
Subject matter and methodsThis technology is based on TSNII SET’s own experience in development of hydrogen generation systems taking into account Russian and foreign achievements in this sphere. The first step of development included detailed calculations and conceptual design of the monoblock reformer for hydrogen production. Later stages included laboratory tests of the models representing main reformer elements, as well as full-scale tests of the breadboard reformer. The results of these activities became the basis for prototype reformer development
Main results.For the first time in Russia, extra-pure hydrogen is obtained through steam reforming with hydrogen extraction from reaction zone. This technology makes it possible to develop very compact, lightweight and efficient equipment for hydrogen extraction from hydrocarbon fuel. This first Russian reformer intended to produce hydrogen for fuel cell-based plants can also be used for whatever other applications requiring extra-pure hydrogen. This paper outlines design solutions for key elements of the reformer, their components, operational conditions and manufacturing technology.
Conclusion.Practical importance of this work is that successful mastering and organization of monoblock reformer manufacturing process will really pave way to wide use of hydrogen power for both civil and military needs of our country.
