New orders for RTS Africa principal Nel’s hydrogen filling stations internationally ‘fuelling’ hydrogen-powered vehicle trend
13 March 2018

The era of fossil-fuelled transportation is drawing to a close. Climate change concerns and dwindling liquid hydrocarbon reserves will undoubtedly change the patterns of personal and commercial transportation in the future. While there are sound cases to be made for the adoption of transportation alternatives such as battery-powered electric vehicles (EVs) - as well as for hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) - the latter type holds the better potential for diminished environmental harm in the longer term.

RTS Africa’s Hy-Optima hydrogen analysers: optimised refinery operations, product and quality
16 February 2018

The basic process of refining crude oil – fractional distillation – into useable product is reasonably simple. Crude oil contains various hydrocarbon compounds all of which condense at varying temperatures. The crude oil is heated in a column and the condensates are drawn off at different levels to produce – amongst others - raw petroleum, diesel and jet fuel products.

RTS Africa Engineering provides accurate, reliable hydrogen detection solutions for increased safety in mine battery-charging stations
28 August 2017

Increasingly, mines are using battery-powered electric vehicles underground as they help eliminate the problem of air pollution from diesel exhaust emissions. However, there is also an inherent risk in having large multi-battery charging bays underground. The charging process generates hydrogen, which escapes from the banks of batteries on charge to form a potentially explosive mix.
