Hydrogen Compressor Solutions
Reciprocating Compressor Technologies for the Hydrogen Transition
As the energy industry pursues clean, sustainable solutions, hydrogen is rising to the top. Cook Compression has years of experience extending run times in high-pressure hydrogen and hydrogen-blend applications in refineries. Our experience, combined with our state-of-the-art development capabilities, position us for partnership as hydrogen energy advances.
Hydrogen in Refineries
In current refinery applications, Cook Compression has successfully implemented cylinder rings, packing cases, rod rings and compressor valves that withstand the challenges of compressing hydrogen gas.
Our high-performing line of TruTech® polymer materials for piston, rider and rod rings, for example, have proven successful in extreme low dew point conditions, and our Manley® and Optima™ valves have both performed reliably in the light gas. Technologies like our Vortex Cooling® packing cases are well suited to non-lubricated operation.
Hydrogen as Energy
Cook Compression can help transition existing infrastructure to accommodate new operational requirements of hydrogen-blend pipelines and hydrogen as a fuel.
Compressor rerates and gas composition changes can be managed in collaboration with our application engineering, project services, field services and research & development teams.
Preparing for a Green Hydrogen Future
The Cook Compression Innovation Team is ready to work with OEMs and aftermarket partners on new equipment and reliable technologies for 100% hydrogen reciprocating compressor applications.
Already in development are durable materials for hydrogen environments, as well as valve and cylinder seal designs suitable for the gas compositions, speeds and pressures expected for hydrogen storage, pipeline, and refuelling applications.
