With the geniumSchwank, Schwank has created the world’s first 100% hydrogen industrial heating system. With this new, unique heating system, an important development step and innovative breakthrough for the use and sustainability of H₂ has been achieved. And even better: geniumSchwank is so revolutionary because not only hydrogen, but also natural and liquid gas can be used.
With this multi-gas approach, the system adapts to the demands of today: Flexibility in terms of the environment – flexibility in terms of economic efficiency. Companies that want to continue using the advantages of natural gas today, but are planning to go down the path of hydrogen as an energy carrier tomorrow, need future-proof solutions like the geniumSchwank. Because it can be adapted to hydrogen in just a few steps.
The patented 100% hydrogen industrial heater
The first hydrogen industrial heater
geniumSchwank is the only infrared heater in the world that allows the universal use of 100 % hydrogen, natural gas or liquid gas. The multi-gas dark radiator can be adapted to the type of gas available in just a few steps.
The well-thought-out design with lengths from 4.9 to 13.9 metres and the available output classes between 21 and 61 kW can cover almost all requirements, whether production facilities, logistics centres or medium-sized commercial enterprise.
Advantages of the hydrogen heating system
Your added value
geniumSchwank can use 100 % hydrogen, natural gas or liquid gas. The most important geniumSchwank advantages:
- Flexible and future-proof: can first be operated with natural gas or LPG and later be converted to hydrogen
- Clean and climate-neutral: no CO₂ emissions with hydrogen operation
- High overall efficiency: seasonal efficiency: 99%*
- Enables planning security
- Sustainable product

Schwank, the world leader in industrial heating, cooling and ventilation celebrated its 90th anniversary
In its 90 years of existence, Schwank has transformed itself into a global leader in industrial heating and expert of ventilation and cooling solutions. The company is now focused on energy transformation so hydrogen and electric heating are becoming its primary focus. As of this year, it offers the first 100% hydrogen heater and is pioneer of being a major force in the transition to renewable energie.
Breakthrough: Climate-neutral Heating with Hydrogen Operated Schwank Tube Heaters
For years, the manufacturers of infrared heaters have been advertising the modernity and future viability of their technology. Now the industry, and above all the Schwank company, has set a groundbreaking milestone with the development of its first 100% hydrogen-compatible tube heating system.
Energy Efficiency is Vital for Reaching Net Zero
A post on the EURACTIV website has included a statement by Paula Pinho from the European Commission’s Energy Directorate, which read as follows: “We believe that, first and foremost, we need to continue to apply the energy efficiency first principle, ensuring that really we make the most out of our limited resources.”
