H2scan Solid State Hydrogen Sensors Exceed 1.3 Billion Field-Proven Service Hours

VALENCIA, CALIFORNIA – April 30, 2024 – H2scan (www.h2scan.com), a leader in solid-state hydrogen sensing solutions, proudly announces a new milestone: more than 1.3 billion hours of field-proven service across a broad range of applications. This achievement includes 700 million hours in demanding transformer asset monitoring applications. For more than 20 years, H2scan’s reliable and accurate hydrogen sensors have also been enhancing industrial process control and area safety monitoring and are now being used to enhance safety in emerging hydrogen economy applications.

The cornerstone of H2scan’s success lies in its proprietary solid-state hydrogen sensor technology. “This innovation has positioned H2scan as an industry leader, setting new standards for accuracy, durability and longevity. Unlike traditional sensors that often require frequent maintenance, H2scan’s hydrogen sensors can operate for more than 10 years without needing maintenance or calibration. This longevity is crucial for customers’ operational expenditure savings and personnel safety,” said David Meyers, CEO of H2scan.

“These benefits are especially vital for long-lasting equipment like transformers and grid energy storage systems, where minimizing service hours reduces associated staffing/costs and staff exposure time to potential service hazards. Additionally, the extended sensor life enables cost-effective transformer asset monitoring across entire fleets rather than just critical assets, as is done today. With a proven record of reliability, our customers can be confident that H2scan sensors will withstand harsh outdoor conditions and deliver consistent performance in real-world environments.”

H2scan is expanding its sensor solution offerings to include turnkey options for utility and industrial customers. These solutions will seamlessly integrate into existing infrastructure without complex configurations or additional equipment, offering a streamlined experience from installation to operation. This simplicity empowers users with precise hydrogen measurement and rapid “time-to-value” performance, delivering measurable ROI in just days.

“As we celebrate surpassing 1.3 billion service hours, we reaffirm our commitment to innovation and excellence,” said John Dileo, VP of Engineering at H2scan. “With ongoing research and development, we continue to push the boundaries of solid-state sensor technology, delivering solutions that redefine industry standards and drive our customers towards greater success.”

H2scan stands behind the quality and durability of its sensors as the only company to offer a 10-year warranty, providing customers with peace of mind and assurance of long-term performance. This commitment to quality underscores H2scan’s dedication to customer satisfaction, ensuring that customers can rely on its sensors for years to come.
