Thermally Activated Trigger for Pressure Relief Devices

GTI Energy developed and licensed a patent to Emcara Gas Development Inc. for a pressure relief device (PRD) with a thermally activated trigger, allowing for increased safety on natural gas and hydrogen vehicles. Emcara has designed a line of innovative, safe, reliable and cost-effective PRD. The PRD's are rapidly becoming the industry standard and preferred choice for protecting compressed natural gas (CNG) and hydrogen (H) tanks in vehicles powered with alternative fuels. Every CNG or H powered vehicle must meet new safety standards to prevent catastrophic explosions of their fuel tank in the event of a fire. Emcara’s innovation uses single-trigger technology, present in all their products.
