Emerson’s New Valves for Hydrogen Fueling Stations

Ensures Maintenance Safety, Minimizes Leaks
15,000 pounds-per-square-inch double block bleed and hand valves provide redundant safety from excessive pressure and superior sealing expertise to avoid leaks
Emerson has launched the TESCOM™ Anderson Greenwood Instrumentation H2 Valve Series for hydrogen applications up to 15,000 pounds-per-square-inch (psi) (103.4 MPa). The new resolution reliably isolates course of pressure in high strain gasoline applications such as hydrogen fueling stations and tube trailers, reducing fugitive emissions and improving safety.
As it moves from tank to pump, hydrogen is transferred at pressures of up to 15,000 psi (103.four MPa). To shield personnel and stop leaks, it have to be effectively controlled and isolated. The Double Block Bleed (DBB) valve’s positive double block association offers two layers of constructive shutoff that protect maintenance workers from high stress throughout instrument maintenance. Its modular design reduces the variety of potential leakage factors, and the strengthened sealing expertise reduces the chance of gasoline coming into the atmosphere through the valve stem.
Among the cleanest fuels when produced utilizing renewable resources, compressed hydrogen fuel is used to energy gasoline cell electrical autos (FCEVs). In 2021, 142 new hydrogen refueling stations started operating, the most important improve in a single 12 months, elevating the total to 685 energetic stations worldwide. And, in January 2022, Global Market Insights Inc. predicted that the FCEV market will exceed $15 billion by 2027. To meet this development demand, fueling station authentic equipment manufacturers (OEMs) should source reliable, high-performance parts to make sure overall equipment effectiveness and guarantee station safety.
“Given the pressures that hydrogen is subject to in these purposes, it’s critical that equipment operates safely and reliably, every time. That’s why we’re committed to particularly creating parts to assist our customers effectively store and precisely control compressed hydrogen fuel,” stated Rob Lindquist, director of worldwide marketing for TESCOM precision fluid management at Emerson.
The hand-operated, maintenance-free design of the hand valves and double block and bleed valves in the H2 Valve Series minimizes upkeep and downtime. With low operating torque and adjustment-free seal expertise, these hand valves ship a low value of ownership in a compact solution.
For OEMs seeking to safely minimize dangers for operators, the H2 Valve Series supplies several safety features. Each valve has a convenient QR code, allowing operators to quickly access the valve’s specs throughout upkeep and installation. The product also ensures that no high-pressure liquid or gasoline is released during maintenance. The valves are compliant to the ISO 19880-3 hydrogen fueling commonplace.
With this new 15,000 psi (103.4 MPa) product line, Emerson provides a comprehensive portfolio of TESCOM options for safe and exact operation of hydrogen fueling stations.
