AST gets go ahead for high-pressure hydrogen storage cylinders


Leading manufacturer Advanced Structural Technologies (AST) has obtained a certification (UN ISO 11119-2) from the Department of Transportation to design and manufacture its cylinders for high-pressure hydrogen gas storage.

Sold under the name H2-MAX, the cylinders will be designed for worldwide usage hydrogen storage and feature a larger diameter, allowing for fewer potential leak points.

Other advantages of AST’s storage vessels include its seamless, one-piece aluminium liner, allowing for an extended cylinder life due to its high heat tolerance and inherent leak-before-burst failure mode.

With its ability to fill faster in extreme temperatures, the H2-MAX also features advanced heat dissipation, reducing the need for chilling during the filling process and minimising the fuelling cost.
