The Component Testing Lab tests high-pressure transportation components, including solenoid valves, regulators, pressure-relief devices, check valves, manual valves, nozzles, receptacles, hoses, fittings, and sensors.

Additional Testing Capabilities

  • Pre-cooled hydrogen flow test up to 200 g/s (133,400 NL/min)

  • Corrosion resistance, including cyclic corrosion resistance

  • Vibration resistance

  • UV resistance

  • Electrical tests

  • Hydrogen, oxygen, and CNG exposure

  • All material testing for above mentioned standards

  • Material failure analysis

In addition to conducting testing, Powertech engineers are members of ISO, CSA and SAE technical committees developing testing protocols.
