Valves for the hydrogen value chain

Valves in hydrogen production, filling plants, storage, transport and consumption

Hydrogen is enjoying a renewed rapid growth in attention both in Europe and worldwide. Hydrogen is ideally suited for energy transport and storage in existing infrastructures. Likewise, hydrogen will find use in many applications throughout industry, transportation and the energy sector as a carbon-free fuel. Green hydrogen is the effective energy supplier when it comes to decarbonizing industrial processes and economic sectors where carbon reduction is both urgent and difficult to achieve. It is clear and cannot be delayed that hydrogen has an essential role to play in supporting international commitments to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and in global efforts to implement the Paris Agreement.

STÖHR is committed to making a positive impact on the environment and offers solutions for stationary and mobile hydrogen-based applications. Our valves and components meet requirements at all media temperatures, valve sizes and pressure ratings.

Whether you are working on stationary applications for infrastructure, fueling stations, or distributed power systems, or perhaps mobile applications for aviation, marine, automotive, aeronautics, or rail, we are open to your challenge! Contact us to discuss your design concept. We will work with you to design, prototype and manufacture the fittings and installations you need for mass production.


hydrogen applications from STÖHR

Best for Aerospace

The aviation industry was one of the first to use hydrogen as a fuel, and the development of hydrogen-powered rocket engines continues.Rocket engine test benches are increasingly needed where the storage of large quantities of gases must be distributed within a short timeframe and at high flow rates, in part to reduce the risk of explosion. This distributed storage requires large-scale pipeline networks to transport the media to the point of use. Because rapid delivery is essential, valves with large nominal sizes ...

Best for Automotive

A hydrogen cycle is an effective way to decarbonize heavy transport and achieve zero-emission mobility. Green hydrogen is produced with electricity from renewable energy sources (water, sun and wind) and is therefore climate-friendly and virtually emission-free. Future fuel cell-powered vehicles or combustion engines with direct injection technology will be part of a future hydrogen ecosystem. The hydrogen will be stored in containers with multiple high-pressure tanks and distribute via a network of hydrogen filling stations to ...

Best for Aviation

The aviation industry has its sights set on climate neutrality from 2050. To achieve this ambitious goal, it must move away from decades of focus on kerosene and make room for a variety of new forms of energy that can power the aircraft of the future. Achieving this will require a new energy ecosystem for aviation. Green hydrogen will play an essential role in the aviation industry's journey to zero. Among many different aspects driving future solutions for airplanes, helicopters, urban air mobility vehicles (UAM) and other unmanned flying platforms, the ...

Best for Infrastucture

In the future, utilities will strive to become integrated hydrogen providers along the entire value chain, from generation to large-scale storage to transportation infrastructure and local distribution. Hydrogen can overcome grid bottlenecks for renewable electricity between different regions by transporting it in the form of green gas through existing pipelines to consumers To make this possible, the green energy system will have the fundamental characteristics of ...

Best for Maritime

Achieving the goal of carbon neutrality will require a new energy ecosystem for the shipping industry, and that in turn will require significant investment, technology transfer, and technology development. Green hydrogen, methanol and ammonium will play an important role in the industry's journey to carbon neutrality. In addition to the many different challenges posed by ships operating in widely varying sizes and conditions, effective solutions are needed for the control process between fuel tanks on board, port fueling stations dockside, fuel infrastructure ...

Best for Railroad Technology

Instead of the considerable investment required to electrify traditionally operated lines and marshalling yards with overhead lines, fuel cells can provide an efficient on-board power supply and provide electric propulsion in cases where batteries are insufficient as energy storage. Hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engine technology is also being investigated for its future potential. Future fuel cell-powered passenger trains or freight trains will contribute to a hydrogen ecosystem and help decarbonize the ...
