Hydrogen Fuel Tank Valve

Schrader was contracted by a global automotive OEM that needed a valve for the head of a 70 MPa storage tank to be used in development of their hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. The valve needed to contain and dispense hydrogen gas for vehicle propulsion, include a number of essential control and safety features.

This tank valve included the dispensing port with a solenoid control valve, an innovative pressure-balanced thermal relief device, a thermistor, a pressure transducer, and features for other tank functions.

This engineering development has expanded Schrader Pacific’s extensive background in the handling of valves for extreme pressure, sealing and flowing flammable gases. This experience is relevant to many applications other than hydrogen.

We are prepared to use our experience and resources to help meet your engineering challenges.
