Transporting gaseous hydrogen is complicated, and transporting liquid hydrogen is even more demanding. To avoid losses and ensure optimum safety, the transport lines for liquid hydrogen must be particularly well insulated. Liquid hydrogen has a temperature of -252.9 °C, making it extremely cold.
When transporting liquid hydrogen, safety is paramount. In combination with oxygen, the cryogenic liquid can lead to explosions. If ice-cold liquid hydrogen escapes through a leak in the transfer line or through insufficient insulation, there is a high probability that the surrounding oxygen will condense. The condensed oxygen in combination with liquid hydrogen can lead to dangerous situations. For this reason, transfer lines for liquid hydrogen are subject to stricter requirements than those for liquid oxygen or liquid nitrogen. In addition, hydrogen can cause components and materials to become brittle.
In short, it is complex to comply with all the regulations governing the transport and storage of hydrogen, especially since these vary widely around the world. This makes it all the more important to experience the latest developments live at Tube 2024.
