With the latest achievements in solid metal hydride technology of AB5-type alloys and unique techniques of alloy loading the HB-SS16500 is one the most advanced hydrogen storage system. The HB-SS16500 can safely store hydrogen in the solid state and release it steadily at ambient temperature without additional energy source - an important issue for fuel cell application. The enhanced discharge gas flow rates of the HB-SS16500 makes it a highly competitive gas supply source for large variety of PEM fuel cells (up to 5 KW).
At present, this type of storage is considered as safest one. Even gunshot tests with fully hydrogen charged tanks do not result in any combustible reaction, which clearly demonstrates the safety level of the product. Unlike the high-pressure hydrogen cylinders, here hydrogen is bonded with the alloy chemically. So, it will take hours, before the system will release it fully in event of gas leakage caused by system’s damage.
The system life cycle is incredibly long – our storage is able to pass few thousand charge/discharge cycles without any essential changes in working technical characteristics.
While charge with only 99,99% purity hydrogen the HB-SS16500 is capable to provide high purity hydrogen (over 99.9999%). It makes HB-SS16500 an ideal pure hydrogen source Fuel Cell systems, that is in addition easy to use and very safe.
