Keep reading to learn more about why hydrogen is a hot industry topic right now.

Hydrogen Fundamentals

Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical element in the universe, making up 75% of all normal matter. It is the lightest and smallest molecule, colourless, odourless, tasteless and highly combustible. In the form of compressed gas or liquid, hydrogen is a multifaceted energy carrier that has revolutionized green renewable energy production.

With those characteristics in mind, it is essential for industrial applications to use hydrogen-compatible valves and fittings to keep the gas or liquid contained. Hy-Lok manufactures and supplies hydrogen-compatible high-pressure fittings and valves to industries across the world.

The most desirable features of hydrogen are its versatility as a carbon-free energy carrier; it can be produced worldwide through a variety of green feedstocks like hydro, wind, geothermal, and biomass; it has the stability to be transported long distances; and it has the highest energy per mass of any fuel. Hydrogen’s decarbonization potential is critical in developing net-zero energy systems globally.
