- H2 GAS -

Hydrogen (H2) is a highly flammable and reactive gas with a high energy density but with the lowest density known.
To enhance this property it is pressurized, increasing its volumetric density, to improve the storage and transportation efficiency. It is mainly used in ammonia synthesis, refinery operations and recently as a fuel replacement, where higher pressures are required.

H2 pressurized comes with some challenges as flammability, high pressures, fugitive emissions and hydrogen embrittlement susceptibility.
Vinco ball valves are designed to operate in hydrogen service by using compatible materials, AED/RGD  O – rings and resistant packing to assure high levels of tightness and fire safe design.
