Hydrogen Vehicle Fueling Station

Successful commercialization of compressed hydrogen as a vehicle fuel relies heavily on the establishment and dissemination of applicable safety standards related to not only fueling stations, but also vehicle fuel system components.† ANSI/CSA HPRD 1-2013 -- Thermally Activated Pressure Relief Devices for Compressed Hydrogen Vehicle Fuel Containers establishes minimum requirements for pressure relief devices intended for use on fuel containers that comply with CSA B51, Part 2 -- Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Pressure Piping Code or SAE J2579 -- Standard for Fuel Systems in Fuel Cell and Other Hydrogen Vehicles.

Highlights of ANSI /CSA HPRD 1-2013 Include:

This standard:

  • Provides guidelines for safe operation, substantial and durable construction and performance testing of thermally activated pressure relief devices for compressed hydrogen vehicle fuel containers, for the on-board storage of compressed hydrogen for vehicle operation within given limitations.
  • Is based on proven engineering principles, research and the combined expertise of gas utilities, manufacturers, users, and others having specialized experience.
