Everything from hot and cold forged products to the development and manufacture of high-pressure gas cylinders
Development and business of high-pressure hydrogen gas cylinders
SAMTECH develops high-pressure hydrogen cylinders, the next-generation products that are
indispensable for the safe use of hydrogen̶the ultimate clean energy of the future.
These are type-III cylinders constructed from aluminum liners and carbon-fiber reinforced plastic(CFRP). A combination of SAMTECH’s proprietary design system, cutting-edge technology, and world-class testing facilities enables the company to produce extremely safe and lightweight high-pressure hydrogen cylinders.
In 2012, SAMTECH obtained the first approval for high-pressure hydrogen cylinders (composite cascade cylinders) in Japan. Since then, Samtech delivered cascade cylinders to more than 80% of hydrogen stations in Japan.
SAMTECH will continue contributing to the realization of a hydrogen society by providing safe and lightweight high-pressure hydrogen cylinders.
With an expanding range of products, SAMTECH products are found in various fields involving hydrogen usage, such as fuel tank, cascade cylinder, and transportation cylinder.
■[First in Japan] the special approval for 82 MPa composite cascade cylinder was obtained.
The composite cascade cylinder were installed more than 80% of hydrogen stations in Japan.
■[First in Japan] the special approval for 45 MPa transport cylinder was obtained.
The product is used for the transportation of large amount of hydrogen, to hydrogen stations.
