Ball Valves and tests for hydrogen applications
Hartmann Valves now offers material suitability and hydrogen leak-tightness tests for challenging hydrogen (H2) applications. The tests help users to increase the operational safety in existing and new hydrogen application areas.
For all metallic components in direct contact with hydrogen Hartmann offers standardised material suitability tests. Within the test scope the metallic material selection is evaluated regarding its resistance against hydrogen embrittlement to make sure that it is fit for hydrogen service. Furthermore, a comprehensive pressure test with hydrogen provides assurance, that the threshold values are adhered to and fugitive emissions are minimised.
