Enhancing safety, durability, and efficiency of hydrogen equipment

Catator, a leader in catalytic hardware development for the hydrogen sector, is pleased to announce a collaboration with TerraBarrier. Together, we aim to revolutionize the safety, durability, and efficiency of hydrogen equipment infrastructure.

Hydrogen equipment used in energy-related catalysis faces significant challenges. Burners, reactors, reformers, and other components are exposed to high temperatures, corrosive compounds, metal dusting, embrittlement, and permeation. These factors lead to corrosion, reduced strength, and reduced reliability. This increases the need for exotic and expensive alloys and reduces the life, safety, and reliability of the equipment.

About TerraBarrier

TerraBarrier AB has developed an innovative solution: the TerraBarrier Coating Technology (TCT). This cutting-edge coating technology has the potential to address critical problems related to corrosion, hydrogen embrittlement, and hydrogen permeation. By applying TCT to hydrogen compressors, heat exchangers, electrolysers, and mobile storage systems, safety and durability can be significantly improved. Additionally, the use of less exotic alloys combined with TCT may lead to cost savings.

Catator’s expertise

Catator, renowned for its patented CataLite® coating technology, specializes in structured catalyst layers directly applied to hardware parts. Their groundbreaking designs for burners, heat exchangers, and integrated reactors have reshaped the hydrogen industry. Catator offers a unique range of catalysts, reactor geometries, and process solutions for hydrogen production and utilization.

Project purpose

The primary goal of this development project is to evaluate TerraBarrier’s Coating Technology (TCT) in applications relevant to Catator. If successful, extended field trials will be conducted, aiming for Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) 8-9. Ultimately, the integration of TCT into Catator’s products will enhance safety and reduce costs.

Catator is committed to advancing hydrogen technology, and this partnership represents an important step toward a sustainable and efficient hydrogen future.
