Sealing solutions for Hydrogen Service
Whether it is grey, blue, or green hydrogen, Flexitallic has the expertise and product’s for your hydrogen applications. Technologies and systems for producing, transporting, storing, and using hydrogen and its products (such as ammonia, liquid organic carriers, synthetic fuels) demand high grade sealing materials and gasket designs.
Sealing hydrogen presents two major challenges due to its unique properties. Hydrogen is a very small molecule, meaning that gasket materials must have tight internal structures and good ability to conform to mating flanges. Second, it is highly flammable, and explosive so extremely reliable sealing is needed.
Most of today’s hydrogen is produced using well established technologies such as steam methane reforming (SMR) and is consumed in three key industries – oil refining, ammonia production and methanol synthesis. Flexitallic has a wealth of experience in this sector with proven products. However as new technologies are being developed and commercialised, improved sealing technologies, such as Corriculite® are required.
Through our expertise built up over two decades in high temperature fuel cell and electrolyser technology (solid oxide and molten carbonate) we are ideally placed to help you navigate the energy transition.
