Constant Pressure Refueler

constant-pressure-refueler

Luxfer GTM Technologies is proud to announce its GTM-CPR (Constant Pressure Refueler), an industry first, offering a low cost, continuous high pressure gas source for users with constant high pressure requirements while being lightweight and portable. Whether supporting hydrogen forklift demonstrations, small hydrogen forklift fleets, or as a mobile filling station for hydrogen vehicles, the GTM-CPR provides a unique, user friendly solution to the industry’s high pressure needs.

Using Type 3 composite cylinders with a working pressure of 6,525psig/450bar, the GTM-CPR integrates an electric booster pump that automatically maintains a constant pressure of 6,000psig into a single 6,525psig/450bar cylinder (aka “high- pressure buffer cylinder”). This single cylinder allows the customer to quickly pressure transfer fill, approximately 2.3kgs of product between recharges with the booster pump; with the entire system operating automatically. Once filled, the GTM-CPR can be easily towed behind a 3⁄4 ton pick-up to the user’s site, the CPR is plugged in, and is then ready to dispense hydrogen either to a standalone dispenser or directly from the CPR unit using a standard hydrogen fill nozzle. The GTM-CPR is the first “plug and play” system to support small to medium hydrogen forklift fleets without the expense of a liquid hydrogen station or the use of cumbersome steel tube trailers and large compressors.

Luxfer GTM offers two GTM-CPR models, depending upon the size and frequency of forklift filling required. Each of the CPR models can be filled at a variety of locations including conventional hydrogen refueling stations, selected industrial gas suppliers, and certain bulk liquid hydrogen stations. All of the GTM-CPR units are available for sale or lease. Depending upon the model and the fill pressure of the CPR, the dispensable amount will vary.
