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 offer redundant safety from high strain and superior sealing technology to avoid leaks
Emerson has launched the TESCOM™ Anderson Greenwood Instrumentation H2 Valve Series for hydrogen purposes up to 15,000 pounds-per-square-inch (psi) (103.4 MPa). Unlock isolates process stress in excessive stress fuel applications such as hydrogen fueling stations and tube trailers, decreasing fugitive emissions and enhancing security.
As it moves from tank to pump, hydrogen is transferred at pressures of up to 15,000 psi (103.four MPa). To protect personnel and stop leaks, it have to be successfully controlled and isolated. The Double Block Bleed (DBB) valve’s optimistic double block arrangement offers two layers of optimistic shutoff that protect maintenance staff from excessive pressure during instrument upkeep. Its modular design reduces the number of potential leakage factors, and the bolstered sealing expertise reduces the chance of gasoline coming into the atmosphere by way of the valve stem.
Among the cleanest fuels when produced utilizing renewable assets, compressed hydrogen gas is used to power gas cell electric automobiles (FCEVs). In 2021, 142 new hydrogen refueling stations started working, the biggest increase in a single year, elevating the whole to 685 active stations worldwide. And, in January 2022, Global Market Insights Inc. predicted that the FCEV market will exceed $15 billion by 2027. To meet this growth demand, fueling station original equipment producers (OEMs) must source dependable, high-performance parts to ensure total tools effectiveness and guarantee station safety.
“Given the pressures that hydrogen is topic to in these purposes, it’s critical that equipment operates safely and reliably, every time. That’s why we’re committed to specifically developing parts to help our prospects successfully retailer and exactly management compressed hydrogen gas,” mentioned Rob Lindquist, director of world advertising for TESCOM precision fluid control at Emerson.
The hand-operated, maintenance-free design of the hand valves and double block and bleed valves within the H2 Valve Series minimizes upkeep and downtime. With low working torque and adjustment-free seal technology, these hand valves ship a low price of ownership in a compact resolution.
For OEMs looking to safely decrease risks for operators, the H2 Valve Series provides a number of security features. Each valve has a handy QR code, allowing operators to rapidly entry the valve’s specs throughout upkeep and set up. The product additionally ensures that no high-pressure liquid or gas is launched throughout upkeep. The valves are compliant to the ISO 19880-3 hydrogen fueling commonplace.
With this new 15,000 psi (103.four MPa) product line, Emerson provides a complete portfolio of TESCOM options for secure and precise operation of hydrogen fueling stations.
