Liquid Hydrogen: Safety and Design Considerations

Registering for CHS webinars grants free access to the live sessions only. On-demand webinars can be purchased 3-4 days after the live session. Employees of CHS member companies can purchase archived webinars at no cost, while others will be charged.

If you work with liquid hydrogen systems, avoiding incidents is an ongoing priority—and worry.Join this webinar to update your understanding of the unique properties and hazards of liquid hydrogen and learn best industry practices for their elimination or mitigation. 

You’ll review the equipment and various components that make up these systems and gain  valuable insight into their safe design and proper use, including how to handle leaks and spills. Packed with practical guidance, this webinar also addresses the construction of these systems and proper methods for locating them while complying with codes, standards and regulations. Attend and for one hour, you’ll focus solely on liquid hydrogen—not gaseous hydrogen—and the 

operational, design and construction considerations surrounding them. You’ll explore the delivery of liquid hydrogen, hydrogen safety, liquid hydrogen tanks and more while gaining safety and design strategies you can immediately apply.    

You’ll learn how to:  

•    Address design considerations for liquid hydrogen systems. 

•    Understand the equipment and components in a liquid hydrogen system.

•    Recognize what to consider when choosing a location for a liquid hydrogen system.

•    Identify codes, standards and regulation governing liquid hydrogen systems. 

•    Manage the unique properties and hazards of liquid hydrogen. 

•    Implement the process for delivery of liquid hydrogen at a site.
