Cylinders safety 12. 12. 2017

We are the manufacturer of unique vessels for hydrogen storage at 1000  bar. The clients often ask for the safety of hydrogen storage in steel  vessels.

The main evidence that steel vessels are the safest and most durable  solution for hydrogen storage at extremely high pressures compared to  composite vessels is the shotgun test we performed in cooperation with  VŠB - TUO. These vessels also doesn´t shoot through the caliber with a  special tungsten core, which is available only to the Department of  Rapid Deployment of the Czech Police. The Lapua Scenar shotgun 338 with a  lead core (standard equipment in the interventional unit in the Czech  Republic), OTM (Open Tip Match) and a narrowed "Boat Trail" shape was  used during the shot.

For comparison, you can also have a look at a 200 bar cylinder shot (the  Lapua Scenar shotgun 338 with a lead core) when the bullet passes  through the cylinder casing, but only the gas escapes from the cylinder  rather than tearing it.

The main advantage of using steel vessels and cylinders compared to  composite ones is the resistance to such extreme mechanical failure  under extreme conditions.
