Note 1: The discharge rate depends on many variables. HCI can help you select a SOLID-H™ metal hydride alloy and hydrogen container(s) that will meet your hydrogen flow requirements. In general, you should not expect to empty the entire hydrogen capacity in a matter of minutes. Hours are required to withdraw 90% or more of the hydrogen capacity from a standard** metal hydride container. The largest SOLID-H™ containers require days to discharge completely.

Note 2: The specified recharge time is for cooling by still air at 20íŠ and the charging pressure specified in the SOLID-H? manual for Alloys A, L, M or H. A fan will shorten charging time.

*Absolute capacity at diminishing rate for Alloys L, M or H. With Alloy A the absolute capacity is increased to 69 standard liters (2.64 scf).

**It is possible to discharge a metal hydride in a matter of seconds. This requires extraordinary heat transfer enhancement inside and outside of the container. HCI can provide heat transfer enhancement to improve the charging and discharging rates of our SOLID-H™ containers.
