HFlame Achieves CE Certification

30th March 2011

ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, is pleased to announce that it has achieved CE certification for its HFlame product.

A CE mark is a mandatory conformance mark for products placed on the market in the European Economic Area. As such, this achievement is an essential element of the Company’s commercial drive as it enables commercial sales within the EU and is another significant product milestone for the Company. CE conformance certifies that a product has met EU consumer safety, health and environmental requirements. In the case of HFlame, CE requires conformance with the EMC and Low Voltage Directives.

HFlame is an alkaline electrolyser technology producing an oxy-hydrogen flame that is far superior to traditional technologies. It generates gas on-demand, providing a high temperature, focused flame from electricity and water. This removes the need to store large amounts of flammable gas and reduces the costs of rental and delivery of gas bottles.
HFlame produces gas that can be used in most applications where oxygen, acetylene, propane or natural gas is employed. It has been designed to replace standard gas and oxy-acetylene systems for a variety of laboratory and workshop applications including heating, brazing/soldering, cutting, polishing of metal, plastic, glass and quartz.

Dr. Graham Cooley, CEO of ITM Power, commented: “We are delighted that HFlame has achieved CE certification, as this is essential for our sales drive in Hannover this month. The unit can be sold into many conventional and established industrial sectors and has many high value niche applications. We look forward to the commercial launch of HFlame at the Hannover Messe next month.”
