ANSI/CSA HGV 4.4-2013 - Breakaway devices for compressed hydrogen dispensing hoses and systems
This standard was developed after the hydrogen gas industry demonstrated the need for safety guidelines for breakaway devices used for dispensing hoses and systems. ANSI/CSA HGV 4.4-2013 - Breakaway Devices for Compressed Hydrogen Dispensing Hoses and Systems establishes performance-based requirements for safe operations, substantial & durable construction, and performance testing of fueling hose breakaway devices for use in hydrogen gas fueling applications.
When a vehicle drives off with the nozzle attached to the vehicle’s fueling receptacle, devices covered under this standard should:
