Pressure sensor for hydrogen applications

Parker Hannifin announces the launch of the new SensoControl SCP04 pressure sensor for hydrogen applications.

Hydrogen is more and more frequently used in all kinds of transportation equipment: from trucks to buses to trains and marine. In order to enable the production, transportation, fuelling and storage of hydrogen, new products and solutions are necessary. The SCP04 pressure sensor from Parker has been designed to meet the chemical and physical requirements in the whole hydrogen lifecycle. Here the sensor is especially flexible due to its different threads to match a wide range of system connectors.

The SCP04 offers a high-pressure resistance and, as a digitally calibrated piezoresistive measuring cell, it detects pressures from 4 bar up to 1,000 bar. The special-bonded connection withstands low temperatures, shocks or vibrations, which makes it especially robust for the most demanding environments.

A monolithic design removes the need for internal seals and eliminates leakage due to material fatigue. The SCP04 has no pressure transfer fluid and no large, pressurized areas. It is also vacuum-tight and elastomer-free. The process connections have been designed to be gasket-free to meet the requirements of hydrogen applications.

The SCP04’s robust construction from 316L stainless-steel and low permeability result in a wide media resistance and prevent embrittlement of the metal by ionized hydrogen. Besides that, the sensor offers a high connectivity through high compatibility with different available connectors and can be configured with various output signals.
