Solving the challenges of oil-free high-pressure hydrogen compression

February 22, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

$10.00 – $15.00

Hydrogen compressors are used for transport and storage of hydrogen for various applications, including power to X, feedstock for ammonia synthesis, and nowadays mobility. In the context of mobility, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) require compressed hydrogen to power their fuel cells and generate electricity to drive the vehicle’s electric motor.

Hydrogen supply for FCV’s is stored at high pressure at fueling stations, typically around 550 bar (8,000 psi), before dispensing it into the FCV’s on-board fuel tank.

This represents a big technical challenge, in terms of compression, since high pressure H2 used for fuel cells must be absolutely oil-free, so compressors need to be able to reach very high pressures, for a very light gas, without using any lubricating fluid.

SIAD Macchine Impianti exploited its long experience in hydrogen compression, in order to develop innovative solutions to reliably face such a challenge.
