Tube Fittings EC-79 Certified for Use on Hydrogen-Powered Vehicles
FITOK (www.fitokgroup.com) has obtained EC-79 type approval for both 6 Series and 20D Series Tube Fittings. The approval is a necessary European Community Directive for components and systems intended for installation on Hydrogen-powered vehicles.
EC-79 certified 6 Series Tube Fittings for systems up to 35 MPa (trucks) and 20D Series Tube Fittings up to 70 MPa (passenger cars) that are used as components on the Hydrogen-powered vehicles.
To obtain approvals, these FITOK Tube Fittings were tested according to Regulation EU No 406/2010 to verify compliance with Regulation EC No 79/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union. The requirements and test procedures were established to meet integrated system safety requirements. With greater world emphasis on green technology and sustainability, hydrogen is highly considered an alternative clean fuel carrier for powering surface transportation.
FITOK tailor-made 316 stainless steel material, with Ni content 12-14%, Cr 17-18%, and C 0.04-0.065%, which has better corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance and higher strength.
