Unique in the world of hydrogen transport and a global first.
SoluForce has developed a spoolable Reinforced Thermoplastic industrial Piping system (RTP, also known as FCP) for hydrogen applications. The SoluForce FCP has been certified for hydrogen applications up to 42 bar of operating pressure. Unique in the world of hydrogen transport and a global first. This significant milestone has a major impact on the feasibility of hydrogen, and is a new step towards a sustainable energy mix.
The SoluForce Hydrogen Tight system has many benefits, that are the same as other SoluForce versions.
The pipe features a uniquely manufactured bonded aluminum layer, preventing hydrogen from permeating out of the SoluForce H2T pipe. Resulting in the industries only completely Hydrogen Tight Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe (or RTP) system. Therefore it eliminates possible health, safety and environmental issues. The pipe is reinforced with aramid fibre, and the inside and outside layers are made of a non-corrosive HDPE. No special treatment is needed, thus reducing installation and maintenance costs.
With the certified maximum operating pressure of 42 bar, the SoluForce H2T pipe is perfectly suited to be connected to hydrogen electrolizers, that usually operate at around 30 bar.
