One Patent for Utility Model -“A Kind of Metal Hydride Hydrogen Storage Device with Rapid Adsorption and Discharge Rate” Authorized by the State Intellectual Property Office
Another patent for utility model of our company named “A kind of metal hydride hydrogen storage device with rapid adsorption and discharge rate” had been authorized on March 26, 2014. The Patent No is ZL 2013 2 0163677.8.
A new type of hydrogen storage device has been proposed in the patent: porous metals with great hydrogen storage properties are filled in it, and the porous structure canbe changed with the hydrogen absorption expansion of hydrogen storage alloy. By this way, the free space is used effectively, and the pressure on the tank produced by expansion of hydrogen storage alloy is relieved, avoiding the deformation of the device. Meanwhile, the porous structure could provide the flow channels for hydrogen diffusion, which will be propitious to the reaction of hydrogen absorption or discharge. Besides, porous metals have excellent characteristics of heat transfer, improving the efficiency of heat exchange. To sum up, this design improves the properties of heat and mass transfer effectively, realizing the rapid hydrogen adsorption and discharge rate with high efficiency, safe and stable. The patent is the achievement of advocating technological innovation, which has high application value.
