New Test Method for Measuring Hydrogen Permeation in Polymers

October 11, 2023

As hydrogen becomes a viable source of power, assuring a safe infrastructure for a national transport system is imperative. As part of that effort, we must accurately understand how H2 interacts with permeable polymers used in pipelines, pumps, tanks, and seals. To date, there is not much known about H2 diffusion through polymers in high-pressure conditions.

EWI has designed and built a permeation test cell that can quickly and reliably measure H2 diffusion through polymers. EWI Senior Technology Leader Jeff Ellis and Applications Engineer Jeff Boyce have written about the development and use of the test in Hydrogen Permeation Through Polymers.
