Hydrogen high-pressure components
for the sustainable mobility of tomorrow
Hydrogen is the renewable energy carrier of the future. Nova Swiss recognized this trend early. For many years, we have been developing technologies for alternatives to fossil fuels for cars, trucks, construction machinery, rail transport and shipping. However, the requirements for the safe handling of H2 are immense.
Nova Swiss therefore gives top priority to safety and economy in the operation of hydrogen refuelling systems. As the main contact for hydrogen high-pressure components, we guarantee both through selected materials, highly developed surface coating and the highest manufacturing precision.
Hydrogen high-pressure components for the highest demands
We meet the high demands on hydrogen storage and transport with a broad portfolio of certified high-pressure components. Needle and solenoid valves from Nova Swiss are designed for pressures well above the 700 bar common at H2 filling stations. The same applies to our diaphragm compressors, heat exchangers and high-pressure lines. Designed for safe and economical operation, they permanently withstand enormous pressure differences and temperature fluctuations.
Nova Swiss can already cover almost all the requirements of hydrogen filling station manufacturers in the high-pressure range. In addition, we manufacture piping and valves around the tank inside the vehicle. In addition to individual parts, Nova Swiss also supplies components that are fully pre-assembled, tested and prepared for installation.
Nova Swiss manufactures components for hydrogen applications between 350 (5075 psi) and 1380 bar (20 000 psi).
- High-pressure needle valves
- Solenoid valves for H2 applications
- Hydrogen compressors
- High-pressure heat exchanger
Safety is our top priority
Nova Swiss stands for safety in the handling of hydrogen applications and adheres to worldwide standards in development. In this way we are striving for hydrogen acceptance as a future fuel for cars, buses, trucks, forklifts or even trains and ships.
We guarantee the safety of our high-pressure components for H2 applications through complete compliance with international regulations and guidelines. Thanks to their certification according to EG79/2009 for impermeability during hydrogen filling and according to SAE J2601 for use in H2 refuelling systems, Nova Swiss products can be used immediately.
- ISO 19880
- SAE J2601
Economy through precision
We regard long life cycles, low failure rates and maximum impermeability even when not in operation as decisive factors for the economic operation of hydrogen filling stations. They prevent expensive repairs and reduce leakages to a minimum. Special attention is paid to the selection of materials for complex components such as solenoid or needle valves.
Nova Swiss high-pressure systems are state of the art. We achieve the outstanding durability of our products through precise fine grinding, high-quality surface coating and the strictest quality controls. We ensure that all Nova Swiss high-pressure products meet the requirements of the market as well as all pertinent legal regulations.
All Nova Swiss high-pressure components comply with international guidelines.
- European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EU
- Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU
- ATEX 2014/34/EU
Development and consultation
For decades, we have been continuously developing our expertise in maximizing product life. Intensive material tests, high-pressure hydrogen tests, leakage tests and burst pressure tests are only a small part of what our materials laboratory can do. In addition, we offer interdisciplinary partnerships in the field of surface technology as well as in complex analysis and testing procedures for the quality control of coatings.
Nova Swiss stands for the continuous development of its competencies and results-oriented research in hydrogen high-pressure technology. In the search for suitable materials and manufacturing processes, we analyse a wide range of different materials. The requirements of high-pressure gas and liquid pressure generators often make it necessary to customize our products. At the same time, manufacturers of hydrogen refuelling systems rely on efficient and durable system solutions. Both areas require detailed product and application knowledge, which Nova Swiss is able to provide in an adequate exchange. In this way, we ensure that application details (pressure, environmental class, temperature), the process cycle, the expected service life and all other factors are fully understood, agreed and optimized.
