High Pressure Hydrogen Storage and Release Testing Facility
A test facility unique in the UK for the
practical experimentation of high-pressure hydrogen
This facility consists of a manifold system for hydrogen
and purge gas cylinder packs. The rig has two high-pressure
hydrogen storage vessels each capable of providing up to 1000 bar
storage and with a capacity of 50 litres.
This is a bespoke facility, giving the customer the
flexibility to work with us to specify additional features such as
specialist data acquisition and enhanced image capture, including
high-speed and thermal video imaging.
The High-Pressure Hydrogen Storage and Release Facility is used
extensively for experimentation looking at the diffusion of
H2, hydrogen vehicle fuelling and hydrogen jet
The facility has been used to produce unique experimental data
concerning hydrogen jet fire impingement on structural materials in
support of HyTunnel, a programme of pre-normative research on the
safety of hydrogen-powered vehicles and other transport in tunnels.
Funding came from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking
