BENTELER has added seamless, hot-rolled tubes and pipes for the safe distribution of hydrogen to its portfolio: BENTELER HYRESIST. Designed for the construction of hydrogen distribution networks, the range helps make the alternative energy source more readily available – and thus the targeted CO2 neutrality more quickly achievable.Together with steel distribution partners, the company is providing the BENTELER HYRESIST product family as an application-specific tube solution.
Seamless, hot-rolled BENTELER HYRESIST tubes exceed the requirements of the European Industrial Gases Association (EIGA) for distribution network tubes and pipes. The following criteria have to be met: hydrogen-compliant steel analysis, pressure resistance, homogeneous structure. With an outside diameter of 21.3-141.3 mm, the dimensional range of the BENTELER HYRESIST tube solution meets the current specifications for hydrogen infrastructure. Furthermore, optimized mechanical values and the high purity of the steel used prevent hydrogen embrittlement. This makes the hydrogen tubes and pipes particularly robust and durable.
BENTELER covers the entire value chain from CO2-reduced steel production in an electric steel mill to tube manufacturing. In addition to industries involved in hydrogen markets, this benefits operators of chemical and industrial parks together with energy supply companies.
