General Description
The Hydrogen Generator Model H2-500 (see Figure 1), is a completely engineered system
designed to produce ultra-pure, dry hydrogen gas from deionized water using a Proton Exchange
Membrane cell1 . The hydrogen generator utilizes the principle of electrolytic dissociation of water
and hydrogen proton conduction through a Solid Polymer Electrolytic membrane. The hydrogen
stream is purified using a coalescing filter, a drying tube, and a palladium purifier. The outlet pressure of the unit is 90 psig (6.12 barg) with a maximum hydrogen delivery flow rate of 500 cc/min.
The hydrogen generator is ideal for use in Flame Ionization Detectors (FIDs), Thermal Conductivity Detectors (TCDs), Trace Hydrocarbon Analyzers, and other general laboratory equipment
requiring a source of pure hydrogen.
Bulletin TI-H2-500E
The purity of the hydrogen gas produced by the Parker
Balston hydrogen generator1is 99.99999+% with respect
to oxygen.

The H2-500 Hydrogen Generator is certified to the electrical safety requirements as specified by
the IEC, CSA, and UL standards. This unit bears the CSA marking on the product label. Product
supplied to Europe carries the CE mark (230 VAC units only). The generator complies with EMC
standards.
Installation
General
NOTE: All installation, operation and maintenance activities for the hydrogen generators
should be performed by suitable personnel using reasonable care.
The hydrogen generators are free-standing bench-top units. Do not suspend the generator
from the wall or ceiling. Its weight and size could pose a falling hazard. The generator should
be located indoors, protected from severe weather conditions, and free from excessive ambient
dust or dirt. Do not install the generator outdoors.
The ambient temperature of the air surrounding the generator must be 60-90В°F (16 - 32В°C). Do
not place the generator in an area where there is a chance of freezing. Place the hydrogen
generator in an upright position, on a level surface, in close proximity to both the electrical power
supply and the equipment requiring hydrogen.
Do not place generator over a source of heat, as this may cause the generator components to
overheat. Maintain adequate airflow around the generator to reduce heat buildup. Do not block
the vents located on the back and the left side of the hydrogen generator. Do not locate the generator in a sealed or unvented room, or in close proximity to open flame or other ignition sources.
Do not locate the generator where it will be subject to freezing temperatures. The generator is
designed for indoor use only.
Symbols
See Explanation of Symbols insert for a list of the symbols displayed on the generator and referred to in this manual.
Transporting
The hydrogen generator weighs 45 lbs (20 kg). Use proper equipment and lifting techniques for
transporting this equipment to its installation location. The hydrogen generator is intended to remain stationary when filled with water. If necessary, the generator may be transported over short
distances when filled. Do not grasp the front panel when moving the generator, lift only from
the bottom. Keep the generator in an upright position.
Preparation
Remove all red tape from the top cover, the back panel, inside the water bottles, and on any
other surfaces. Remove the red cap sealing the hydrogen outlet fitting and the bleed vent, on
the back of the unit.
Deionized Water Bags - Remove the deionizer bags from the plastic shipping container and
inspect for holes or tears. Insert the “T” end of the plastic cable running through the deionizer
bag into the hole of one of the water reservoir caps (see Figure 2). Pull the “T” end through the
hole to the outside of the cap (see Figure 3). Repeat for the other cap. Do not let any foreign
material fall into the water bottles. Insert one bag into each water reservoir.
Caution: Cell contamination is a cumulative and irreversible process, which will eventually cause an over-voltage, automatically shutting down the generator. The deionizer bags
are for a final decontamination stage and should not be used to purify low grade water.
Utilities
Power - The hydrogen generator may be operated by a 100-120 / 200 -240 VAC, 50-60 Hz
single phase power supply (check the product label on the generator for specific generator voltage). To connect the generator to the power supply, simply plug the female end of the electrical
cord into the receptacle on the back of the generator, and the opposite end into a three-pronged
grounded power receptacle.
Deionized Water - The hydrogen generator must be supplied with deionized water with a
minimum resistivity of 5 Meg-Ohm/cm. Parker Hannifin provides a point of use accessory, the
HydroGenв„ў Mate (P/N 72-230) that provides high purity water (>5 Meg-Ohm/cm) from tap water
for manually filling the generator.

Bulletin H2-500F
Piping - The outlet connection for the hydrogen generator is a 1/8” compression fitting, the
bleed port is 1/8” compression, and the relief port is 1/4” NPT. All tubing and fittings downstream
from the hydrogen generator should be clean stainless steel to minimize contamination of the
hydrogen stream. If copper tubing has been used with hydrogen in the past and has yielded acceptable results, there is no need to alter an existing piping configuration to install the hydrogen
generator.
Caution: If you pipe the gas away from the bleed port, the tubing must angle downward to avoid
water condensing in the line and plugging the vent to the purifier. Also, the bleed line must vent
to atmosphere to avoid introducing back pressure on the cell.
Pressure Regulator – The pressure is controlled using the Pressure Regulator located on the
front panel, exposed when opening the front gray panel door (see Figure 4). The pressure can
be monitored using the gauge located on the front of the unit. There is a Pressure Relief valve
inside the generator that is set for 125 psig (8.6 barg) in case of internal pressure build up. The
expelled gas is channeled through the Pressure Relief Port located on the back of the unit.
(Note: the generator pressure regulator is pre-set to deliver hydrogen at 90 psig.)
Shutoff Valve – The generator includes a shutoff valve located on the front panel behind the
gray door (see Figure 4). Use this valve to shut the unit off when not in use. In case of extended
periods of downtime see the Operation / Shutdown / Storage sections.

Operation
Water Reservoir
After carefully following all the preparation procedures in the Installation section, open the top panel and
remove the water reservoir caps (with the deionizer bags already attached). Fill both reservoirs with
deionized water until the level in the tank reaches the “Full” mark. It will take approximately 3 liters of
deionized water to fill the generator. Do not overfill the water bottles.
Insert the drain tube fitting (with drain tube attached) into the drain port and remove approximately
100 ml of water (see Figures 5, 6).
Make sure that the deionizer bags are fully immersed in the water and that they do not block the outlet
port on the bottom. Do not block the small vent hole in the water reservoir cap with the “T” fitting or anything else. Be sure to remove all of the red tape that was applied to the unit for shipping purposes. Do
not let the deionizer bags dry out.
Note: The generator will automatically shut down if the water level becomes too low, or the water
quality is not sufficient.
Startup
Open the gray panel door on the front of the generator to expose the generator controls (See Figure 4).
Turn the Shutoff Valve to the closed position. Connect the electrical power cord to the power receptacle
on the back left side of the generator, and connect the other end to the wall receptacle.
1 If the line needs to be purged before the hydrogen can be used in the instrument, make sure a
3-way valve is in the line near to the instrument.
Note: The recommended 3-way valve is Parker 2F-HB4X-K-SSP
2
Make sure all the gas connections are secure.
3
Set the Pressure Regulator (see Figure 4) to minimal pressure by turning the knob counter clockwise until the knob moves out approximately 1/2” from the front panel.
4
Turn on the Power Switch located on the power receptacle on the back. The Power and the No
Hydrogen Flow indicators should illuminate on the front panel (see Figure 7). Do Not Press the START button.
Note: Except when the unit requires servicing, keep the Power Switch on, to prevent damage to the purifier.
5
The unit must warm up for at least one full hour or damage will occur. The unit will beep once
every 60 seconds to let you know that there is no flow being produced.
6
After the minimum one hour warm up, press the Start button located on the front panel (see
Figure 4). The Hydrogen Flow and the High Hydrogen Flow indicators should now be illuminated.
The bargraph will also illuminate, from zero to maximum. The No Hydrogen Flow indicator will be
off. Do not open the outlet valve until the bargraph has illuminated to maximum and started to decline. This indicates that the internal system pressure is sufficient to provide the required hydrogen
flow.
Note: The High Hydrogen Flow light comes on when the generator is operating at the maximum flow
rate. During normal operation the indicator will be illuminated as the generator builds up pressure when
you first start the system or when you are running at or near the maximum capacity of the generator. If
the system senses that the pressure is not increasing at the internally preset rate or is actually decreasing, the unit will assume abnormal conditions are present and automatically shut the unit down. If the
unit shuts down, press the start button to try to re-initiate flow. If this is not effective, then proceed to the
Mass Leak section for instructions.
7
Slowly open the Outlet Valve.
Note: The pressure will drop initially then begin to increase as the volume downstream begins to fill. The
High Hydrogen Flow light will be illuminated. If the volume is so large that the system is unable to maintain a preset filling rate then the Mass Leak error condition is reached and the unit will automatically shut
down. See Mass Leak section for instructions.

8
Purging - If you have installed a 3-way valve in the line and want to purge the lines, first turn
the 3-way valve to the closed position to pressurize the lines. Next turn the valve to the vent
position and vent the hydrogen gas for 2 minutes. Repeat the pressurization / purge routine
at least 5 times.
Note: Make sure that flow rate out the vent port is less than 500 cc/min to avoid shutting
the unit down. Use a needle valve or other flow restrictor on the vent.
9
Mass Leak
Flowing - Turn the 3-way valve to the instrument flow direction. Adjust the flow controller on
the instrument until desired flow rate is reached, with a maximum of 500 cc/min.
Follow the instructions listed in the Initial Startup section. If the pressure continues to drop, the
High Hydrogen Flow (Mass Leak) light will illuminate (see Figure 4) and the generator will shut
down. A Mass Leak may be caused by a leak in the piping to the downstream equipment, or it
may be caused by the downstream piping volume being too large for the generator to fill. If it is
determined that a Mass Leak is present, please follow the procedure below:
1
Close the Shutoff Valve (see Figure 4, shown in the CLOSED position).
2
Press the Start switch to reset the Mass Leak detector which is indicated by the High Hydrogen Flow indicator light turning off (see Figure 4).
3
Re-pressurize the generator.
4
Repeat the Initial Startup procedure three times to verify the leak.
If the system continues to detect a leak, check all the external tubing connections and make sure
that the volume is not too large for the generator purchased (500 cc/min). If the leak still persists,
check the fittings inside the generator.
Caution: Do not use commercial leak detection fluids on any LexanВ® plastic parts in the
generator. These fluids may cause cracking and crazing which leads to part failure. Use a solution of 4-5 ml of liquid dish soap in one liter of water.
Caution: Use extreme care when checking for internal leaks. Due to the nature of the gases
involved use a protective face shield or other appropriate equipment whenever servicing or troubleshooting the generator with the cover removed.

Operation
Operational
Summary
Warning: Under no circumstances should the generator be operated with the cover removed.
To maintain the highest purity, the hydrogen generator should be run continuously. Monitor the
hydrogen consumption of the downstream equipment to ensure flow is within the capacity of the
generator (500 cc/min.). Both the Power Indicator light and the Hydrogen Flow Indicator light
should be illuminated (see Explanation of Symbols at the back of the manual).
The water level should be monitored regularly and refilled as necessary. The reservoirs hold
enough water for at least 3 days of continuous operation (3 liters total). Water can be added by removing the cap of the water reservoir (do not pull the deionizer bag out) and adding enough water to
reach the Full mark on the front view port. Replace the cap, and make sure the deionizer bag does
not block any of the ports.
To maintain the integrity of the hydrogen cell, follow the guidelines listed below:
•
Keep a supply of deionized water in the reservoir above the Refill line at all times.
•
Minimize the “dead - volume” in the piping between the generator and the downstream equipment.
•
Never expose the unit to temperatures below freezing.
•
Never abruptly open the Shutoff Valve to large volumes. The large hydrogen demand can trigger the Mass Leak safety feature.
If the built-in diagnostics trigger a fault LED to illuminate, consult the Troubleshooting section of this
manual for further instructions.
Caution: Long periods of unattended operation are possible, provided that an adequate water supply is maintained. If more than 6 hours of standby service is anticipated, close the Shutoff Valve.
Note: To prolong the life of the purifier assembly, maintain power to the system unless extended
periods of non-use are expected.

Diagnostics
General
The Parker Balston Model H2-500 hydrogen generator has built-in system diagnostics to monitor
the operation of the generator and alert the operator in case of a failure. There is a Power Indicator light on the front panel of the generator to signal the operational status of the system (see
Figure 7).
The Control Circuitry controls the membrane cell current to a safe level and eliminates the possibility of excessive hydrogen production. If a fault occurs and an indicator is illuminated, follow
the instructions in the Troubleshooting section to clear the fault.
The hydrogen generator has a Bar Graph that is used to check the hydrogen flow (Flow Check)
and the water quality (Water Check) (see Figure 7).
Note: See the Explanation of Symbols section at the back of the manual to match the symbols on
the generator to the descriptions listed below.
Hydrogen Flow
Indicators
Hydrogen Flow Indicator - The Hydrogen Flow Indicator illuminates to indicate the cell is generating hydrogen (see Figure 7).
Flow Check Bar Graph - In normal operating mode (the side Mode Button is out), the bar graph
displays the percentage of flow produced by the system (see Figure 7). The Bar Graph feature
displays the flow from High (500cc/min) to Low (less than 5 cc/min).
No Hydrogen Flow Indicator - The No Hydrogen Flow Indicator illuminates when the generator is no longer producing hydrogen (see Figure 7). An audible alarm will sound once every
60 seconds to alert the user that no hydrogen is being produced.
High Hydrogen Flow Indicator (Mass Leak) - The High Hydrogen Flow Indicator illuminates
when the generator is operating at the maximum flow rate (see Figure 4). During normal operation the indicator will be illuminated as the generator builds up pressure when you first start the
system or when you are running at or near the maximum capacity of the generator. If the demand
on the unit exceeds capacity then the generator will shut down and the No Hydrogen Flow indicator will illuminate and begin to beep. This may be caused either from a leak in the piping to the
equipment or it may indicate the volume being filled is too large for the generator (see Mass Leak
section). The unit must be reset with the Start button once the leak has been found.
Water Quality
Indicators
Water Check Bar Graph - If the Mode Button is pressed in, the Bar Graph will display the Water
Check quality (see Figure 7). The Bar Graph indicates the water quality level from High (>5 MegOhm/cm) to Low. This quality level corresponds to the changes in the current going through the
water.
Change Water Indicator - If the water quality in the reservoir reaches the Low level, the Change
Water Indicator (see Figure 4) will illuminate and the unit will shut down. The water in the unit and
the deionizer bags must be replaced.
Low Water Indicator - If the water level drops too low in the water reservoir, the generator will
stop producing hydrogen. Refill the water bottles to the full line and press Start to begin the flow
of hydrogen.

Maintenance
General
When performing routine maintenance, carefully follow the instructions provided in this
section to avoid injury or damage. Service should be performed by persons familiar with
the service and safety requirements of electromechanical / electrochemical devices.
With proper care and maintenance the hydrogen generator will provide years of trouble-free operation. Only routine service is needed to maintain peak operational conditions.
The primary maintenance tasks required by the hydrogen generator are replacing the deionizer
bags (approximately every 6 months), and refilling the water reservoirs (every 3 days). A summary
of replacement part numbers and recommended service frequency is shown at the end of this
section.
Do not use water, aerosols, or other cleaning agents on the unit. If necessary, the generator
can be wiped down with a clean dry cloth on an as needed basis. Use of any liquid detergent to
clean the generator could present an electrical hazard.
Do not use commercial leak detection fluids on any LexanВ® plastic parts in the generator.
These fluids may cause cracking and crazing which leads to part failure. Use a solution of 4-5 ml
of liquid dish soap in one liter of water.
Water Refill
Refill the water in the generator whenever the water level reaches the Refill level displayed on the
front panel (see Figure 7). The water supply should last approximately 3 days when the reservoirs
are filled to the Full level (They hold 3 liters approximately of water).
If the Low Water indicator (see Figure 4) should illuminate, the generator will stop producing
hydrogen to safeguard the hydrogen cell from permanent damage. If this happens, close the
shutoff valve. Add water to the generator until the Full level is reached and press the Start switch
to begin generating hydrogen and building pressure after operational pressure is obtained, slowly
open the shutoff valve.
