1500 bar: Quantum Leap in Hydrogen Valve Technology


1500 bar: Quantum Leap In Environmental Hydrogen Technology

Whenever we talk of reaching the targets of Zero Carbon, either in industrial, such as trucks use or on a personal level, e.g. private vehicles or household items, nobody really sees the impact of SMEs. It is their merit due to their ingenuity  that adds to the final success of multi-billion dollar companies. Let us introduce Goetze KG, one of those publicly almost nameless companies that add to the future of the Zero Carbon idea and technology. Let us highlight their latest invention: A valve that can bear pressures up to 1500 bar.


Goetze KG - Series 492, Version DN6 Valve with a capacity of up to 1500 bar

This valve is only half as heavy and half the size as comparable valves. It is just this compact design that simplifies the integration of the valve where there is restricted installation space. Another resounding argument with regard to maximum flexibility is offered by the rotatable outlet housing. The direction of the outlet can therefore still be adjusted after installation, which simplifies the installation of the valve in a line environment that already exists. And all is realised with up to 1500 bar pressure.

Engineering efforts and milestones in the field of high-pressure safety valves

The high-pressure safety valves are set on a high-pressure test bench produced specifically for Goetze. These types of systems are not a matter of course on the market and require specific planning. Using the new test bench as well as its own engineering efforts in the further development of the series 492, Goetze KG achieves a milestone in the field of high-pressure safety valves for technical gases, by reaching up to 1500 bar. Goetze therefore underlines its know-how as a solution partner in the field of hydrogen applications and thus supports the development of green hydrogen towards a promising substance in energy generation and storage as well as in the industrial sector.
