4 October 2022 Webinar: Hydrogen - Diffusion, Permeability, Hydride Formation and Metallic Embrittlement - A Metallurgical Perspective on Hydrogen Issues. Part 2 - Hydride Formation & Embrittlement
The growing use of hydrogen in the energy industry sets in motion a myriad of metallurgical issues and problems. The metallurgical community has long been dealing with problems associated with hydrogen interaction with metals; from containment in its liquid state at cryogenic temperatures to its burning as a fuel at high temperatures and everything in between. This two-part webinar series deals with some of the more complex metallurgical issues related to hydrogen. Part 2 of this webinar series (this webinar) addresses hydride formation and embrittlement. The dynamics of how hydrogen diffuses and infiltrates into a metal structure is shown. How the reactivity of hydrogen causes hydrides to form and coalesce in critical areas leading to embrittlement is discussed. How embrittlement is evaluated for particular metal systems is also shown. And finally, the preventative measures which can be implemented to prevent hydrogen embrittlement are presented.
20 - 21 September 2022 Offsite Expo (Coventry, UK)
Once again we exhibited at this event.

6 September 2022 Webinar: Hydrogen - Diffusion, Permeability, Hydride Formation and Metallic Embrittlement - A Metallurgical Perspective on Hydrogen Issues. Part I - Containment, Diffusion & Permeability
The growing use of hydrogen in the energy industry sets in motion a myriad of metallurgical issues and problems. The metallurgical community has long been dealing with problems associated with hydrogen interaction with metals; from containment in its liquid state at cryogenic temperatures to its burning as a fuel at high temperatures and everything in between. This two-part webinar series deals with some of the more complex metallurgical issues related to hydrogen. Part I (this webinar) addresses issues associated with cryogenic containment, diffusion, and permeability. A discussion of cryogenic materials selection and processing is presented addressing proper containment of hydrogen at extremely low temperatures. The nature of hydrogen gas is covered with a discussion revolving around the very small and very reactive nature of the hydrogen atom. It can diffuse through any material and permeate its microstructure. You can’t stop it, but maybe you can slow it down and control it.
