On behalf of the EMPIR MetroHyVe project we would like to invite you to join us in Delft, The Netherlands on 12 March 2020, for a hydrogen sampling training course or by teleconference. During this workshop, you can take inspiration from Oliver Büker, hydrogen sampling researcher at the renowned Swedish research institute RISE. He will elaborate on praxis and challenges of sampling gas and particulates from hydrogen refuelling stations.
Standards ISO 14687 and EN 17124 on hydrogen fuel quality set stringent limits for numerous gaseous impurities and particulates that may damage the fuel cell system in a hydrogen vehicle as it is highly sensitive to the presence of even very low levels of impurities. The sampling procedure itself could provide inaccurate results if sampling is not performed correctly or the wrong type of vessels are used. We will discuss sampling devices, sampling vessels and purges at the station. The workshop addresses the following topics:
Gas sampling devices
Following the workshop, there is the opportunity to participate in a tour to a hydrogen refuelling station in Rhoon, operated by AirLiquide. Transportation from and to the refuelling station is arranged. The workshop is free of charge, and is recommended for anyone working with hydrogen vehicles or the infrastructure that supports it.
Please note that this workshop will provide training via presentations (without hands-on demonstration).
