> WireTough Cylinders LLC

Company Type: Hydrogen Storage, Supplier
Description: WireTough Cylinders, LLC is a Virginia-based company that manufactures ASME certified low cost high pressure cylinders for hydrogen storage using its patented, proprietary wire-wrapped technology. WireTough uses a steel liner wrapped with multiple layers of extremely strong steel wire to produce tanks that are lighter and can hold higher pressure than solid steel Type I tanks and are more durable and less expensive than carbon fiber composite Type III and IV tanks. DOE selected WireTough in 2014 to develop low cost hydrogen storage at 875 bar (13,000 psi) and WireTough has successfully done so. WireTough has a range of hydrogen storage tanks with capacities of from 3.4 to 34 kg. WireTough's hydrogen storage products range from 2 to 9.5 meters in length and the pressures from 200 to 875 bar (3,000 to 13,000 psi) and offer greater cycle life than carbon fiber composites. WireTough's hydrogen ground storage tanks are attractively priced; contact the Company for a quote.
