RP1.4-08 – Detailed assessment of Type B appliances with blends of hydrogen and natural gas and 100% hydrogen
The project is a detailed assessment of Type B appliances with blends of hydrogen and natural gas and 100% hydrogen. The project will provide an understanding of any potential Type B end-user changes required for different blend ratios and 100% hydrogen.
There is a strong industry need to cost-effectively identify any compatibility issues of commercial and (light) industrial appliances and burners with hydrogen. Based on the test plan developed in RP1.4-06, in this project experiments are being performed on compatibility of commercial burners, appliances, and ancillary equipment with 10 mol% hydrogen in natural gas (allowing variation up to 21.7%) and maximum hydrogen percentages without changes and with minor changes. It will also test a limited number of retrofits for 100% hydrogen, especially those that are likely to be cost effective. Predictive models and costing tools are being developed for comparing retrofits with new hydrogen or electric appliances.
