VHGR test facility is intended for integrated research and trials of catalytic hydrogen recombiners.
The test facility consists of hydrogen and nitrogen sources, a water treatment system, a steam generating plant, and water circulation and cooling equipment. Testing process is monitored by a measuring and recording system. Chemical composition of water and gas fluid is analyzed using an automatic multichannel chemical control system.
