Steelhead Composites has announced their certification to American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section X, RP.

This certification ensures components manufactured by Steelhead meet the highest level of standards in the industry.

Steelhead is authorised for all three classes of vessel design, enabling Steelhead to deliver its novel HydrogenCube™ storage systems for grid-scale fuel cells, gas turbines, hydrogen buffer storage, green ammonia generation, and other stationary applications. The standard provides requirements for construction of fibre-reinforced plastic pressure vessels (FRPs) in conformance with a manufacturer’s design report. It includes production, processing, fabrication, inspection, and testing methods required for the vessels and systems.

“Steelhead has established itself as a leader in the manufacturing of lightweight, next-generation safe and certified hydrogen storage solutions,” said Curt Honcharik, Director of Quality Systems at Steelhead. “And, with ASME RP certification, the stationary users of hydrogen can be confident our products are in compliance with some of the most stringent pressure vessel codes.”

Steelhead Composites HydrogenCubes™ are modular units consisting of manifolded RP-certified Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessels (COPVs) storing between 18 kg and 1.2 t of hydrogen. The company also holds several additional certifications including ISO-9001, 14001, 11119-2, AS-9100, CE-PED-Module B and D, and DOT FMVSS 304.
