500 Liter Hydrogen Storage

  • Mini-hydrogen station for use in labs
  • Able to power up to 100W PEM fuel cells
With the latest achievements in solid metal hydride technology of AB5-type alloys and unique techniques of alloy loading the HB-FR07-0500-B is one the most advanced hydrogen storage system. The HB-FR07-0500-B 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-FR07-0500-B makes it a highly competitive gas supply source for large variety of PEM fuel cells (up to 150 W).
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 systems 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-FR07-0500-B is capable to provide high purity hydrogen (over 99.9999%). It makes HB-FR07-0500-B an ideal pure hydrogen source Fuel Cell systems, that is in addition easy to use and very safe.
