Hydrogen Energy

Chart is your ideal project partner to deliver hydrogen as a secure, clean, safe and affordable alternative to fossil fuels.

Because of its high diffusivity, extremely low density, wide flammability range and ultra-low temperature in liquid form, hydrogen presents a series of unique challenges for its safe and economical storage and distribution.

Through our deep cryogenic expertise and proven track record of delivering solutions for a huge range of liquefied gases, including hydrogen, Chart is uniquely positioned to address the hydrogen value chain.

Liquid Hydrogen Storage

Chart cryogenic hydrogen storage tank

Liquid hydrogen storage eliminates high pressure cylinders and tanks and is a more compact and energy dense solution than gaseous storage. Chart is the undisputed leader in cryogenic liquid hydrogen storage with > 800 tanks in hydrogen service around the world for aerospace, FCEV fuel stations, FC forklift fueling, liquefaction and many industrial applications.

  • In-house design, manufacture and testing in accordance with NFPA, ASME, CGA and all recognized international codes and standards
  • Comprehensive range of vertical and horizontal tanks
  • Chart Vacuum Technology® for superior thermal performance 
  • Manufacturing in US, Europe, India and China
  • Modular design reduces project complexity, civil engineering requirement and time at site for installation and start-up
  • Scale adapted solutions for all stakeholders
  • Chart also designs and manufactures vacuum jacketed pipe, vaporizers and other equipment used in the transfer and vaporization of hydrogen

Transport Trailers

Chart's liquid hydrogen trailers are designed specifically for transporting hydrogen over the road. 

  • Capacities from 6,000 to 17,600
  • By incorporating the same superior insulation and high quality construction that we use with our stationary tanks we minimize net evaporation rate and boil-off gas
  • Different platforms means that trailers can be highly maneuverable for urban settings or jumbo design for minimizing long haul distribution
  • Exceed the requirements of an MC-338 highway trailer
  • Complete refurbishment, repair, inspection and certification

Our latest acquisition expands our trailer manufacturing and repair capacity through the addition of a fully equipped specialist faciity in Theodore, AL.

Metering Systems

Flowcom® flow metering systems are proven to deliver significant benefits to fleet managers and driver-operators. Simple, convenient and safe to operate, our high precision meters, designed specifically for hydrogen service, include the following features:

  • Absolute pressure range from 435 to 3,045 psi (30 to 210 bar)
  • Compliance with recognized standards and measurement requirements
  • Bluetooth® data transfer

Brazed Aluminum Heat Exchangers

Chart brazed aluminum heat exchangers are an essential part of the hydrogen liquefaction process.

Chart plate fin heat exchanger

  • Compact design, efficient performance
  • Custom engineered according to customer thermal and hydraulic performance requirements
  • Proprietary in-house simulation software
  • Designed and tested in accordance with all applicable international codes

All Chart's hydrogen products are supported with an extensive range of after-sales services including installation, commissioning, start-up, training, parts and servicing.

Proud to be working with our peers to deliver a clean energy future.

Chart hydrogen partners

Hydrogen tanks built by Chart's VRV operation in Italy are an integral part of the on-site infrastructure to fuel vehicles equipped with hydrogen fuel cells.

Chart VRV hydrogen tank for hydrogen fueling

This 120,000 liter cryogenic tank built at our Sri City facility is India's largest. It stores liquid hydrogen that is used as a propellant for satellite launch rockets at -253°C.
