Steelhead Composites offers lightweight composite-overwrapped pressure vessels for high pressure hydrogen storage. Steelhead Composites’ Type 3 cylinders are made of robust, seamless aluminum liner completely over wrapped with durable epoxy-impregnated carbon fiber composite.
Improved fast-fill due to great thermal heat capacity and conduction of Aluminum liner
Metallic liner provides gas-tight containment of H2 gas with near zero permeation
LEAK BEFORE BURST
All vessels are designed and tested to ensure that the Aluminum liner leaks under fatigue without causing catastrophic rupture
Bladder Accumulators are a family of compact, lightweight composite accumulators,
providing unmatched form and functionality for any weight-restricted applications where
mobility and strength are top priorities.
The MicroForce series diaphragm accumulators are a family of compact, lightweight composite accumulators, providing unmatched form and functionality for any weight-restricted applications where mobility and strength are top priorities.
Steelhead’s patented piston accumulator combines the standard back-up bottle and piston accumulator into one unit, making the composite piston accumulator the lightest weight and most efficient piston accumulator product on the market.
Steelhead Composites compressed gas cylinders offer a variety of gas storage options perfect for many weight-sensitive and mobile applications. These lightweight composite cylinders can allow more economical transportation of compressed industrial gas and gaseous fuel from point A to point B.
High capacity hydro-pneumatic accumulators that provide significant usable gas volume can be costly, heavy and difficult to manage. Gas charge cylinders storing gaseous Nitrogen typically are used to complement large accumulators and to improve their performance in the field. Lightweight composite cylinders can provide significant weight savings over traditional steel cylinders, especially critical to the off-shore and semi-submersible oil and gas platforms. Reduction in weight translates to transportation, operational and installation
cost savings as well.
