UAC delivers type IV pressure vessels with plastic liner, stainless steel endbosses and composite structure, made of high-strength glass fibre and epoxy resin. Composite materials offer several advantages, such as lightweight, non-toxic and non-corrosive properties, eliminating risk of galvanic oxidization.
UAC pressure vessels are tested to a safety factor of 3,2 – 3,4. 250 bar pressure vessel has a typical burst pressure of 840 bar or higher. The pressure vessels are approved in accordance with EN 12245 and prove a far better performance than the standard requires. This is especially important on flaw tests, impact tests
and fire tests.
UAC pressure vessels can be delivered for working pressures of 200, 250 and 300 bar for different volumes. Each pressure vessel can hold up to 2500 litres of water for integration in a storage or transportation solution of CNG / biogas. Larger vessels are designed to reduce the number of leakage points compared to those possible with smaller cylinders.
