Hexagon Purus is the world leading supplier of lightweight Type 4 high-pressure tanks and systems for the storage and distribution of compressed gases, in particular hydrogen, natural gas and biogas. Our solutions serve a wide range of mobility and storage applications, enabling our customers to reduce their carbon footprint and increase their competitive edge.
Type 4 cylinders
Type 4 high pressure tanks prove to be the best combination of weight, safety, efficiency and durability. Our cylinder concept is based on hybrid reinforcement technology consisting of combined carbon and glass fiber shells for maximum material cost efficiency. For weight-critical operations and pressures above 250 bar, full carbon reinforced versions are used.
We are operating the world’s largest and most automated Type 4 manufacturing facilities based on 60 years of tank production and gas storage experience.
With more than 1,600 transport modules and over 0.5 million high-pressure tanks for hydrogen and CNG in operation worldwide, we are the world market leader for Type 4 tanks and systems.
Lightweight & Efficient
Being approximately 75% lighter than steel, our products help you to achieve considerable operational cost savings through weight reduction.
Long life time
The corrosion and fatigue-resistant properties as well as a high cycle performance lead to a longer life time of the system.
Strong safety culture
Our tanks are tested and approved in accordance with established safety standards and all processes are regularly monitored and controlled.
