Haskel engineer to unveil new hydrogen technology at 2018 summit


An engineer from high pressure pump and valve manufacturer Haskel is to unveil new technology at the 2018 Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Energy Summit.

Product Engineer Pooya Mahmoundian will be a featured event speaker and during his presentation will unveil a new technology developed to address specific industry challenges.

At the 2018 summit, Mahmoundian’s presentation – entitled “Design approaches to prevent hydrogen (H2) induced crack growth in pressure vessels and the related changes in the ASME PVC Sec VIII, Div 3” – will share details of the vessel design as well as explain the changes that the ASME, the U.S. regulatory body for the pressure vessel market, has made to its testing and audit protocols as a result of the new technology. By eliminating the need for repeated testing and required alloys for the metallurgical prevention method of H2 embrittlement, Haskel’s new vessel design could greatly reduce manufacturers’ costs across the U.S. – with hope of seeing similar regulatory changes across Europe and Asia over the next year.

In a press release the company said, “Haskel, a longstanding player in the H2 market, is highly invested in compression technology research, as well as research on the H2 refuelling process, arguably the most challenging aspect of fuel cell technology. The company’s engineers, including Mahmoudian, developed a new innovative technology in conjunction with the U.S. Army as part of a Collaborative Technology and Research Agreement.”
