Maximum performance – even in harsh ambient conditions
Despite its many possible applications, the handling and transport of hydrogen continues to be challenging. Thanks to their exceptional material properties, technical ceramics offer new possibilities to overcome these challenges in handling hydrogen. Kyocera supplies high-performance ceramic materials that perform well in harsh ambient conditions, such as in hydrogen processes. Thanks to the excellent mechanical strength and their hermetic sealing technologies, these ceramic products lend themselves to a wide range of applications.
Complete assemblies based on specific customer requirements
Alongside its standardised ceramic components, Kyocera also offers fully customised solutions. Thanks to an enormous variety of moulding methods, years of experience with soldering technology and a wide-ranging portfolio of coating technologies, the company is able to provide complete assemblies on the basis of its customers’ needs and requirements. Kyocera’s electrical feedthroughs are hermetically sealed and ideally suited for UHV applications. Thanks to the wide range of metal and solder materials available, they can be adapted to suit different conditions, for instance corrosive environments, high mechanical loads, high pressure conditions or extreme temperatures.
Carbon-free hydrogen production
Green hydrogen in particular, which is obtained through the electrolysis of water, is expected to play an even more significant role in the near future. It can be used in a variety of applications and is also the only solution for carrying out certain processes in the chemical industry. It can also, for example, replace much more polluting coal in the steel industry. It is produced by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen using electricity in a process known as electrolysis. If the electricity required for this process comes entirely from renewable energies, hydrogen production is even carbon-neutral. However, due to the special chemical properties of hydrogen, safety and reliability must be guaranteed throughout the entire value chain. With this critical factor in mind, Kyocera’s high-performance ceramic components are ideally suited for handling hydrogen. The company’s activities in this field are consistent with Kyocera’s sustainable corporate philosophy and commitment to protecting the environment.
Kyocera at Hydrogen Technology Expo Europe 2023
Kyocera will present its product innovations at the Hydrogen Technology Expo Europe 2023, which will take place in Bremen on 27 and 28 September, taking the opportunity to emphasise the advantages of technical ceramics for hydrogen applications. The theme of this year’s fair is “Technologies & Solutions for a Low Carbon Hydrogen Future”. Kyocera will be exhibiting its products at booth 6E85.
