Welcome to rebresearch.com!

REB Research & Consulting manufactures hydrogen purifiers, membrane reactors, hydrogen generators, and other hydrogen-related products. We also provide consulting, water-gas shift catalysts, reforming catalysts, furnaces, hydrogen getters, and hydrogen barrier coats. It was founded in 1987 by Dr. Robert E. Buxbaum to make use of his expertise in metal based hydrogen separation. How can we help you?

Introducing a new lower cost hydrogen generator
specially designed for use with gas chromatographs.


Outputs 500 sccm of ultrapure hydrogen 99.99995% at 50 psig suitable for supporting several GCs with carrier gas. Hydrogen is made by reforming a 70% mix of methanol and water; safer and cheaper than bottled gas.

October 2013: Quite a bit of interest in tritium extraction and purification this month. Key issues include permeation barriers, and redundant control.

March 2013: We've redesigned our small-output, band-heated hydrogen purifier cells; they are now smaller and cheaper. Check our new, lower prices.

January 2013: Robert Buxbaum starts a blog of his random ideas on hydrogen, business, and the world. I try not to be dull.

December 2012: Development of a new, lower cost, higher pressure output hydrogen generator: 90 psi output, 220-600 sccm, membrane purified gas for use as the carrier or detector gas in chromatographs.

November 2012: We ship our largest hydrogen purifier ever.

August 2012: We just bought our own helium leak detector. This should allow us to speed the testing time, reduce costs and allow us to make a higher quality product.
