OPW Clean Energy Solutions brand introduces two new sizes for hydrogen-handling applications

ACME Cryogenics, part of OPW Clean Energy Solutions, recently developed new 6-in. and 8-in. valve sizes for its Model CV Valve product line.

Global investment in hydrogen infrastructure is leading companies to develop large-scale production and storage equipment that requires larger components, so ACME created the valve sizes in response to growing customer requests for hydrogen valves with larger bore sizes, the company reported.

The 6-in. and 8-in. valves are available in actuated and manual versions featuring a Class 150 pressure rating. Additionally, ACME is working on creating a bellows-sealed option that will be able to handle pressures up to 550 psi, which will make it an optimal choice for hydrogen-handling applications, ACEM said. The supplier also is developing models that will have 10-in. and larger bore sizes.

ACME Model CV valves possess design and operational benefits that make them ideal for the handling of hydrogen. They also are compatible with applications that require the use of vacuum-jacketed valve and piping systems. All Model CV valves are compliant with ASME B31.3 and CSA B51 regulations that govern the use of valves in industrial applications with various pressure and temperature ratings.

Model CV valves are rated for hydrogen-handling use in a wide range of markets and industries, including aerospace, food and beverage, electronics, vehicle refueling, industrial manufacturing, and medical.
