Achern, September 14, 2022 - TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH has certified fischer Edelstahlrohre GmbH in Achern that its longitudinally laser welded stainless steel tubes meet the requirements of TÜV SÜD for high pressure hydrogen applications.

In a testing and auditing process lasting several months, TÜV SÜD certified fischer Edelstahlrohre GmbH and was able to hand over the H2-Ready certificate on September 13. The certificate covers longitudinally welded stainless steel tubes made of the materials 1.4401, 1.4404, 1.4571 and 1.4435 with diameters from 5 mm to 205 mm. Depending on the material, the tubes can be used in temperature ranges between -253 °C and 400 °C, even with high pressures up to 900 bar.
