Parker Adds Industry-Leading Hydrogen Sensing Systems to Its
Instrumentation Offerings 
Signs Agreement to Manufacture Systems With H2scan Products 
VALENCIA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/20/12 --  H2scan Corporation,
provider of the most accurate, tolerant and affordable hydrogen leak
detection and process gas monitoring solutions for industrial
markets, today announced the Instrumentation Products Division (IPD)
of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and
control technologies, has signed an agreement with California-based
H2scan Corporation to become the exclusive manufacturer of co-branded
process systems incorporating over 11 different process monitors. The
monitors will be integrated into a larger, co-branded sensing
solution targeted at refineries, petrochemical, fertilizer, ammonia
and hydrogen production plants.  
Parker's role in the joint venture will be extensive. IPD will be
responsible for the final testing, field calibration, and
direct-to-customer delivery. Additionally, Parker will
non-exclusively private label and internationally offer H2scan's line
of area safety products targeted at battery room, refineries,
hydrogen storage and nuclear applications. 
"Dating back to our earlier work integrating H2scan's miniaturized
process analyzers with our modular IntraFlow(TM) NeSSI(TM) platform
for a large British Petroleum project, we realized the excellent fit
between our companies' products and services. This joint agreement is
a natural next step for Parker and the beginning of a long-standing
relationship we expect to have with H2scan," said Craig Beckwith,
General Manager of Parker's Instrumentation Products Division. Parker
IntraFlow surface-mounting fittings dramatically reduce the amount of
space required for instrumentation flow control systems by as much as
75%, minimizing the volume of sample flow paths, speeding
construction and reducing cost of ownership.  
Based on a patented "chip on a flex" technology, H2scan's hydrogen
sensing system monitors are able to detect and measure hydrogen
without false readings or expensive support equipment. This makes
them ideal for the NeSSI(TM) platform. H2scan's process systems have
the ability to operate in real time, with or without the presence of
oxygen, and without interference from hi
gh concentrations of CO or
H2S, separating H2scan from all other in-line measuring technologies.
The area leak detector sensing systems are able to detect hydrogen in
air from 2,000 ppm to 5% concentration without cross-sensitivities to
other gases. 
"Signing a global manufacturing agreement with Parker is crucial to
our business today, as increased sales are driving us to expand
production, testing and fulfillment around the world," explained
Dennis Reid, President and CEO of H2scan. "We see our joint endeavors
as a monumental step for H2scan," Reid added. 
Parker production of exclusively co-branded process systems
incorporating H2scan process models has already begun, and the first
systems have already been built and shipped to petroleum companies.
