500 Liter Hydrogen Storage

  • Hydrogen storage for laboratory instruments
  • The best complement for stationary instruments
  • Provide the hydrogen demand for more than five units of instruments
  • The most portable and safest storage ever designed for laboratory use
HB-FR02-0500-B is a hydrogen storage system, based on the latest achievements in solid metal hydride technology of AB5-type alloys as well as on unique techniques of alloy loading. It allows to store and release the gas at ambient temperature and at designed pressure range from 1.0 up to 5 atm with very high stability of gas flow: 95% of stored gas can be released with designed maximum flow rate at almost constant temperature.
At present, this type storage is considered as safest one: even a gunshot test with a full hydrogen charged tank does not result in any combustible reaction, which clearly demonstrates the safety level of the product. Unlike to high-pressure hydrogen storages, here hydrogen is bonded with the alloy chemically. It will take hours, before the system will release it fully in event of gas leakage cased by systems damage.
The system is able to pass a few thousand charge/discharge cycles without any essential changes in working technical characteristics, while exploited properly.
HB-FR02-0500-B is capable also to provide high purity hydrogen (over 99.9999%) while for charging only 99.99% purity hydrogen is required. It makes HB-FR02-0500-B an ideal pure hydrogen source for Gas Chromatography and many other gas purity-sensitive systems.
