PFPNet is examining the performance of PFP and CSP systems when exposed to hydrogen hazards. At this stage in the development of hydrogen as an energy source there are a wide range of potential situations and uses being investigated, demonstrated or developed. This variability has the potential to result in a wide range of fire and cryogenic hazard scenarios that might require mitigation through the use of PFP/CSP materials and systems.
Liquid or gaseous hydrogen will be found at a wide range of volumes and pressures associated with production, storage, transmission, transport and distribution, with many end uses such as power generation, direct firing/heating or as a fuel, and covering onshore, marine, and offshore locations. Before proposing or developing any tests for PFP/CSP materials and systems to demonstrate their resistance performance when exposed to hydrogen hazard scenarios, PFPNet needs to understand what the scenarios might be, and what resistance performance a PFP/LHSP system might be required to provide. With this information:
• Manufacturers and users of PFP/CSP systems can understand what resistance performance a PFP/CSP system might need to be able to provide.
• Any testing to demonstrate PFP/CSP resistance performance will represent realistic scenarios, and the results will therefore have direct applicability to real projects.
The scope of work is to develop a report for PFPNet and its members that will provide data and a briefing to address the above needs.
