Cryogenic solutions are mission-critical to help accelerate the expansion of liquid hydrogen as a clean and sustainable energy source for transportation, industrial, and residential/ commercial fueling applications.
The Hydrogen Economy includes the usage of hydrogen as a renewable, clean source of energy for heat, hydrogen vehicles, energy storage, and for the long distance transport of energy. Because of its high diffusivity, wide flammability range, and ultra-low temperature in liquid form, hydrogen requires highly specialized technologies for its safe and economical storage and distribution
“Investment in green hydrogen production is set to exceed $1 billion a year by 2023 as the costs of both renewable power and electrolyzer technology fall and governments introduce supportive policies.” –IHS Markit
Vacuum jacketed piping is a type of piping system that is used to transport hydrogen gas. The piping is made up of two layers of metal, with a vacuum between them. This vacuum helps to insulate the hydrogen gas, preventing it from escaping and reducing the risk of leaks. The vacuum also helps to reduce the risk of fire or explosion, as the hydrogen gas is not exposed to oxygen. Vacuum jacketed piping is an important part of hydrogen mobility, as it helps to ensure the safe and efficient transport of hydrogen gas.
These valves are designed to be able to withstand the extreme temperatures associated with hydrogen gas, which can be as low as -423°F. Cryogenic valves are also designed to be able to handle the high pressures associated with hydrogen gas, which can be up to 10,000 psi. Cryogenic valves are an important part of hydrogen mobility, as they help to ensure the safe and efficient transport of hydrogen gas.
