As the leading manufacturer of hydrogen pressure vessels, FIBA Technologies is renowned for producing ground storage and transportation solutions to the highest standards.
FIBA’s Type I ASME Section VIII Div. 1 and Div. 3, comprising ASME ground storage, can carry a payload of up to 451 cubic meters at 500 bar, and its AD2000 products used in Europe can hold 903 cubic meters at 450 bar.
Also available from FIBA are composite pressure vessels. FIBA designs and manufactures the highest pressure composite vessels on the market, at 1,034 bar. The Type II ASME Section VIII Div. 3 composite pressure vessel can hold a payload of up to 261 cubic meters of hydrogen at this pressure.
Tubes certified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME www.asme.org ) are used regularly to store hydrogen at high pressure and are most commonly used for ground storage. While ASME tubes are an important part of numerous stationary gas storage applications, including helium, the majority of the hydrogen refueling stations in the US deploy FIBA’s Type I ASME ground storage vessels.
A key factor within the growing popularity of hydrogen as a fuel is the ability to refuel quickly and easily. Customers often say they prefer the faster fill experience over the longer charging time seen with battery vehicles. High pressure storage aids this.
As with all of the products FIBA manufactures for a whole variety of industries, the company’s hydrogen pressure vessels are of superior quality. They comply with all relevant codes wherever in the world they are installed.
Key factors within FIBA’s capabilities are its world-leading engineering and metallurgical teams who design state-of-the-art products that are code and regulatory compliant, safe and cost-effective.
With an ongoing investment program, FIBA employs leading edge technology, including a sophisticated CNC spin forging machine (known as a ‘spinner’) which operates proprietary software to enable FIBA to form the gas container ends to meet a customer’s specific needs.
Each vessel leaving the FIBA manufacturing site is certified for safe storage or transportation.
