Development in the hydrogen industry

The French Corrosion Institute continues developing R&D and test services for material resistance evaluation under gaseous hydrogen pressure. In addition to our standard test capabilities, we can also adapt to specific requirements and develop “on-demand” test method. In this example, we have produced for one of our client, a “fit-for-purpose” test bench capable to simulate the exposure of tubing to pressure cycles of several tens of bar of hydrogen. The equipment is operated to mimic the real pressure cycle to which the part will be exposed in service. The number of cycles is defined to simulate the full life time of the product and ensure its integrity in service.
