CFCP Unveils Tool to Sample Hydrogen Fuel Quality.

The California Fuel Cell Partnership (CFCP) recently announced it has developed a new tool that allows fuel quality monitoring officials to collect hydrogen fuel test samples from the dispenser nozzle.

CFCP said the quality of hydrogen is typically monitored through testing at a fuel station's storage vessel. However, with CFCP's new Hydrogen Quality Sampling Adapter (HQSA), officials can now collect samples at the point where the fuel is dispensed into a vehicle's tank, allowing them to identify possible contamination of the fuel that might occur after it has left the storage vessel.

CFCP said the device was developed by its InterOperability Team, a collaborative team of engineers and technical specialists from the fuel cell industry.

"The new [HQSA] allows for the connection of a currently available gaseous fuel sampling bottle to be connected to [a Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)]-standardized hydrogen fueling station dispenser nozzle," said the organization.
