One of the fundamental pillars of the global energy system’s decarbonization is hydrogen. While the great majority of hydrogen used today is produced by reforming fossil fuels, green hydrogen, which is created by electrolyzing water to separate it into hydrogen and oxygen using renewable energy, is gaining popularity in a number of industries, including transportation.
Hydrogen is a clean fuel that may be burned directly or used in a fuel cell to generate power, with the sole byproduct being water. It emits no carbon dioxide during combustion.
Pressure is defined as the force that a liquid or gas exerts on a surface. It is typically expressed as a ratio of force to the surface area. Units like Pascal (Pa), Bar (bar), N/mm2, and psi are common.
An object that measures a physical quantity and converts it to a signal is referred to as a sensor. The quantity could, for example, be pressure, length, force, or temperature. Although it can also be optical, the signal is typically electrical.
A pressure sensor is a device made up of a pressure-sensitive element that uses various working principles to identify the actual pressure applied to the sensor and other components that turn this information into an output signal.
The Global hydrogen tank pressure sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Various pressure sensors are used by Senmol HCV in its hydrogen storage tanks, hydrogen injectors, hydrogen circulation, air intake, coolant circulation, etc.
Tens of megapascals to hundreds of kilopascals of pressure can be measured using high-pressure hydrogen, medium-pressure hydrogen, low-pressure hydrogen (with water), air, and other substances.
Hydrogen is combustible, explosive, and prone to leak, making the material and structure design of the sensor more challenging because hydrogen is easy to occur in hydrogen embrittlement with metal materials.
