Discharge experiments in KIT DISCHA facility started

With a delay of a few months because of redesign, new measurement requirements and extensions and delay in component delivery the first experiments in the Release and Distribution phenomena work packages WP3 have been conducted on 31 of January.

DISCHA facility for discharging small inventories (2 Nl) hydrogen with T > 80 K and p < 200 bar

The first tests conducted so far are reference tests at ambient temperature which are also meant to check the whole experimental setup, before cooling down the facility to 80 K with liquid nitrogen LN2.

The experiments have been extended to include observation of the mixing in ambient air of the released hydrogen.
