HySolGenics’ “Solar/Wind Hydrogen Fueling Station”        

    

By 2015 there will be a choice of hydrogen fuel cell automobiles ( see H2 fueled autos ). The only limitation is by 2015 there will be 68 hydrogen fueling stations in California and about twelve in New York and a few others scattered around the country. The range on the initial fuel cell automobiles will be from 250-400 miles on a fill up of hydrogen fuel. Only in California will the stations be strategically spaced so that you can drive all across California. See the ( hydrogen stations ) page for California locations.


Since the hydrogen stations are clustered in LA, SF Bay Area and Sacramento anyone located more than a hundred miles outside those clusters will be hard put to find hydrogen fuel. HySolGenics, Inc. Is attempting to fill that gap with it’s M2-HFS hydrogen fueling stations.

          



The M2-HFS is portable ( the size of a small refrigerator) and contains the entire system, water filters, electrolyzer, compressor, storage tanks, regulators and fueling hoses with automotive standard 350 Bar (5,000 psi) fueling nozzles.

Operation is simple.

1. Open the bottom side door and roll out the oxygen hose. This ensures that the evolved oxygen is dispersed away from the M2-HFS.

2. Open the other bottom door and unroll the water intake hose with its screen head. Place it in any source of water.

3. Plug in the Solar and or Wind electrical leads to the power box.

4. Go find a nice shady spot to drink beer (wine in California) while the M2-HFS automatically gins up a full charge of hydrogen fuel.

This is my kind of solar hydrogen fuel system!

After the M2-HFS storage is full of hydrogen fuel, refueling a fuel cell automobile is a snap.

1. Open the fuel hose door.

2. Check the regulator setting to ensure that the hydrogen fuel pressure is correctly     regulated for the vehicle tank that you are going to fill.

3. Take out the hose and attach the nozzle and connect it to the vehicle tank receptacle.

4. Squeeze the nozzle handle and let the hydrogen fuel flow into the vehicle tank. ( Once the tanks have equalized the M4-HFS system will automatically continue to compress  additional hydrogen to top off the vehicle tank at 350 Bar (5,000 psi)).
