Carbon Fiber Fully Wrapped Cylinder

Hydrogen storage is the bridge connecting hydrogen production and utilization, playing a crucial role in the development of hydrogen energy. Compressed gas storage is currently the most mature hydrogen storage method. The carbon fiber fully wrapped cylinder with plastic liner (Type IV cylinder) is the hot development direction of compressed gas storage. Type IV cylinder has the advantages of low cost, high hydrogen storage density, and long fatigue life.


Carbon Fiber Fully Wrapped Cylinder


Detailed Introduction

Type IV hydrogen storage cylinders are essential energy storage components for aircraft, ships, and vehicles

► Type IV hydrogen storage cylinders are mainly composed of plastic liners, metal valve seats, carbon fiber composite layers, glass fiber protective layers, and polyurethane protective sleeves.

► Type IV hydrogen storage cylinders are used in conjunction with integrated valve cylinders, one-way valves, pressure reducing valves, relief valves, pipelines, sensors and other components to form a hydrogen supply system for vehicles.

► Generally, commercial vehicles include 6-8 high-pressure hydrogen storage cylinders, while passenger cars have 2 or 3 cylinders.

Bipolar Plate

The bipolar plate in a fuel cell is an important component made of carbon material that is molded, impregnated with a sealant, and solidified. It has good air tightness, can separate fuel and oxidant to prevent gas permeation; high electrical conductivity, can collect and conduct current; strong flow channel design ability, can evenly distribute gas to the electrode reaction layer for electrode reaction; strong thermal conductivity, can discharge heat to maintain uniform temperature distribution in the cell; meanwhile, it has low cost, is easy to machine, and is suitable for mass production.

Carbon Paper

Carbon paper is an important component of the fuel cell membrane electrode, located between the bipolar plates and the catalyst layer. It is a vital structure that supports the catalyst layer and collects current, while providing multiple channels for gas, protons, electrons, and water for electrode reactions. The choice of gas diffusion layer during stack design has a significant impact on fuel cell performance and lifespan.
