Applied Porous Technologies (APT) specializes in the manufacturing of sintered porous metal media, components and engineered assemblies. With operations continuing to grow, APT has just installed a new hydrogen storage system that will enable them to increase the efficiency of their sintering furnaces. The electrically heated furnaces used to process APT’s stainless steel porous metal are constantly blanketed and flushed in hydrogen to provide a clean, dry, oxygen-free atmosphere. This keeps the stainless steel free from oxides and other contaminants and provides for the best corrosion resistance in the finished product.

APT’s new hydrogen storage system incorporates a series of high-pressure storage tubes which feed into a control manifold to manage the delivery of hydrogen to their various furnaces. The greater efficiency of this system will provide APT with increased manufacturing capacity to meet the needs of a growing customer base, while still maintaining competitive pricing structures. The modular system will initially store 30,000 cubic feet of hydrogen, but it can be easily expanded in the future as production growth warrants. The unit was installed, and will be maintained, by ABCO Welding and Industrial Supply, Inc.
