Luxfer’s Dynecell® products are the leading line of lightweight high-pressure hydrogen-storage cylinders used by a number of the world’s largest OEMs that design, develop and manufacture state-of-the-art compressed hydrogen storage systems for fuel cell and internal combustion engines.
The Dynecell advantage is our lightweight, impermeable Type-3 cylinder technology, coupled with the high-precision gas flow control provided by Luxfer’s proprietary high- pressure hydrogen valve. The result is a certified, cost- effective hydrogen storage solution ideal for private and fleet automobiles, transit buses, stationary storage and bulk hauling applications.
Available with operating pressures ranging from 5,076psi (350bar) to 6,572psi (450bar), Luxfer Dynecell cylinders can be fast filled. Luxfer has also developed and demonstrated Dynecell cylinders that can be filled to 10,000psi (700bar).
Dynecell in action around the world
Numerous hydrogen-storage systems fitted with Dynecell cylinders and valves are operating around the globe. Luxfer provided 30 Dynecell cylinders for Citaro fuel cell transit buses operating throughout Europe as part of the Clean Urban Transport for Europe (CUTE) project. Dynecell cylinders were also used on 40 hydrogen-powered commuter buses during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
In the automotive sector, world-class OEMs – including Hyundai, Ford Motor Company, Daimler and Nissan – use Dynecell cylinders.
Mobile hydrogen refueling system
Dynecell cylinders are being used for mobile refueling systems that provide “instant infrastructure” by making compressed hydrogen immediately accessible to end users. The operating pressures of these systems are 5,076 psi (350bar) and 6,572psi (450bar), making them ideal for:
- Fuel cell vehicle demonstrations.
- Resupplying stationary hydrogen refueling stations.
- Refueling remote hydrogen fuel cell applications and sites.
