Cryogenic tests:
liquid hydrogen storage

ET EnergieTechnologie provides specific facilities for cryogenic hydrogen testing from ambient pressure up to 40 MPa according to customer needs and requirements. The tests are aimed at support of development phases for cryogenic components, subsystems and systems for functional, safety and validation purposes.

Measurements are directed to determine
  • Temperatures
  • Pressures
  • Boil-off rates
  • Flow-rates
  • Mechanical strain, etc.

Two laboratories of around 75 m² are available.

Validation and safety tests

Based on the applicable standards and on customer requirements ET EnergieTechnologie typically performs tests like

  • Determination of thermal properties
  • Lifetime endurance testing
  • Determination of burst pressures
  • Vacuum failure and hydrogen release incl. ignition
