IMPCO Technologies Releases New Hydrogen Fuel Delivery Module

Kitchener, ON - IMPCO Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the alternative fuel industry and a division of Westport Fuel Systems Inc., has confirmed the release of a new GFI branded 350 bar (5000 psi) Hydrogen Integrated Tank Valve Regulator (“H-ITVR”), available globally.

The H-ITVR simplifies fuel cell systems and reduces cost using an integrated two stage regulator architecture to provide regulated stable low pressure directly from the hydrogen fuel cylinder. The proven GFI in-tank design protects the high pressure solenoid in case of impact and environmental conditions such as thermal shock, water instruction and corrosion. Additionally, a low pressure durable injector controls the flow of hydrogen to the fuel cell module.

Key features:

  • Regulated low pressure output direct from cylinder
  • Low and high pressure solenoid-operated valves
  • Includes manual valve for service flexibility
  • Multiple SAE J1926 ports available for optional pressure relief valves and sensors
  • 12V or 24V options available, pulse width modulation option available
  • Integral temperature sensor for fast fill interface
  • Integral thermal pressure relief device
  • Regulator or tank valve can be independently serviced
  • Integrated and serviceable high pressure filter

The H-ITVR has been selected by a leading original equipment manufacturer of fuel cell systems for its innovative design, performance and durability; and it has been incorporated into their new generation of products starting in 2016.
