Energized synergies​

Energized performance

Efficient hydrogen production relies on durable components. Water entering the electrolyser system faces continuous potential contamination from metal ions derived from the metallic piping and ions and organics from the electrolyser stack itself, posing a risk to the electrolyser’s lifespan. Our plastic solutions prevent ion leaching (dissolved ions from the material leading to degradation and corrosion of the system), maintaining low conductivity values while offering corrosion-free advantages over metallic alternatives. Committed to excellence, we leverage accredited in-house testing facilities and expert knowledge to meticulously select polymer materials, maintaining project excellence without compromise.

Energized safety

By prioritizing operational safety, we offer lifetime verification, on-site QA/QC, and installation client support. Leveraging the intrinsic chemical resistance of polymers, our performance materials offer a dependable solution for transporting diverse media like potassium hydroxide (KOH), glycol water, and liquid ammonia. Potential technical risks associated with hydrogen transportation, such as hydrogen embrittlement and leakage through hydrogen-induced cracks in steel, can be avoided using high-quality polymer materials.

Energized sustainability

Plastic piping systems have a lower overall carbon footprint than metal solutions due to their longevity and maintenance-free quality. This drastically reduces the need for repair, hence the operating and overall costs. At GF Piping Systems, we assist new customers daily contemplating the transition from metal to plastic for their applications, supporting them throughout every project phase, from planning to commissioning and operating. Continuous life cycle assessments validate the environmental performance of our systems through third-party assessments, such as Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). This makes them a compelling choice for sustainable construction projects.

Our solutions across the entire H2 value chain

Production Applications

Our polymer piping systems cover various applications, from ultrapure water treatment to the transport of various media for electrolyser technologies. A common challenge is the impurities caused by dissolved ions in metal components, leading to accelerated degradation and corrosion. Corrosion-free polymer piping systems offer a solution that extends the lifespan of applications, particularly in stacks. This prolonged lifespan directly impacts the cost of hydrogen production.

Usage Applications

The increasing attention to hydrogen's significance in mobility has spotlighted fuel cells, where our conductivity sensors enhance measuring accuracy within cooling water loops. Paired with a hydrogen storage system, fuel cell systems facilitate pollution-free energy generation. For storage purposes, we offer high-quality injection-molded and extruded plastic inner liner components for type IV hydrogen tanks, crafted from PE100 and various grades of PA.

Distribution Applications

Ensuring safety is paramount in the distribution of hydrogen. Our product lines, designed for realiable hydrogen distribution, hold crucial approvals from KIWA (AR214). Moreover, the ELGEF Plus and MULTI/JOINT® 3000 Plus product ranges have obtained 100% hydrogen-ready certification, validated by the DBI (Gas Technology Institute in Leipzig, Germany).
