The Noble Gas Systems 350-bar conformable hydrogen tank technology demonstrates its capabilities and benefits in real-world driving conditions.
The Conformable Compressed Gas Storage System developed by Noble Gas System is the future of gas storage and delivery. It is a safe, light-weight compressed gas pressure vessel that can be integrated into existing vehicle architectures. The industry-leading system provides more capacity and are lighter weight than traditional Type 4 Carbon Overwrap Pressure Vessel (COPV) cylinders and currently meets burst and hydrogen permeation requirements for 350-bar working pressures. Additionally, the leak-before-burst failure mode of this design eliminates the opportunity for a catastrophic, instantaneous release of high-pressure gas, making it a safer alternative.
The system can be fabricated in a variety of shapes and sizes to be easily integrated into existing product configurations, such as electric vehicle battery compartments or the tight spaces within unmanned aerial vehicles.
Globally, the transportation industry is being challenged to develop low- and zero-emission solutions due to government regulations and consumer demand. Hydrogen fuel cell as an enabling technology allows vehicles to achieve zero emission requirements while better addressing requirements such as range, duty cycle and refueling speed. The Conformable Compressed Gas Storage System tackles the storage challenge, efficiently and safely storing compressed hydrogen fuel onboard a vehicle without impacting passenger or cargo space.
