Tiger Optics Shows Prowess in Testing Hydrogen for Fuel Cell Vehicles

August 19, 2015

The need is vital, as Toyota and other automakers bring new electric autos to market

Warrington, PA (August 19, 2015) – Spearheading the move to carbon-free transportation, Tiger Optics LLC, a leader in laser-based detection of trace contaminants, announces its most recent order from the State of California to qualify the hydrogen (H2) required to operate fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). Tiger’s analyzers provide the sensitivity, selectivity and accuracy needed to measure certain contaminants that can damage or destroy a vehicle’s fuel cell. Because such quality control is crucial for FCEVs to achieve mass-market success, the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International has set stringent standards for hydrogen fuel purity (http://standards.sae.org/j2719_201109/).
