Nuclear power stations use instrument gases and calibration mixtures with Nuclear Counter devices, measurement and other research applications.
In modern age generation such as Photovoltaic energy, the cells used to capture the suns rays are created using different technology, but each process will use high purity gases such as hydrogen, nitrogen along with electronic grade semiconductor gases. And various Waste-to-Energy power generating facilities will also use high purity gases and mixtures for environmental monitoring.
Specialty equipment such as REDLINE® cylinder regulators and gas supply panels are used in many areas to control gas cylinder pressures while ensuring purity is not compromised.
For small scale power generation, modern fuel cells use high purity hydrogen and cylinders of ammonia (to generate hydrogen) for localised electricity production.
