Advanced Hydrogen Solutions


The transition towards renewable energy sources is leading to significant changes in revenue streams and business models.  Traditional fluid testing technologies, originally designed for the oil and gas sector, often fall short in meeting the stringent requirements of Cleantech applications like hydrogen operations.  With the Cleantech market for Net Zero rapidly expanding, operators are increasingly in need of quick and accurate data to minimise project risks and make informed investment decisions.

fluidXlab is your premier destination for advanced hydrogen solutions.  As a leader in the field of hydrogen laboratory studies, we specialise in providing tailored solutions for a wide range of critical areas in a future hydrogen-driven energy system like hydrogen diffusion, corrosion analysis and fluid behaviour assessments.

Our state-of-the-art facilities and expert team are dedicated to investigate the complexities of hydrogen quality, rock fluid interactions, and caprock integrity investigations with meticulous precision.  We offer more than just testing and analysis – we deliver transformative insights and consulting services that empower our clients to excel in the realm of hydrogen technology.

H2 Facilities & Infrastructure

Enable Efficient, Safe and Long-Term Operations

Under typical pressure and temperature environments found in facilities related to gas/hydrogen storage, hydrogen solely manifests as a diatomic gas.  Being the lightest element, its distinctive properties of low density, low viscosity, and a weak negative Joule-Thomson effect, coupled with its high diffusion tendency, give rise to particular demands on material selection in operations with pure hydrogen or gases with hydrogen admixture.

Partnering with fluidXlab enables you to confidently address the complexities of hydrogen compatible infrastructure, paving the way for safe operations.
