Application of Open Celled Al in the Alloy Hydride System for Hydrogen Storage
The open cell Al (or Al foam) was employed in the alloy hydride system due to the rapid heat conductivity of Al. The hydrogen storage alloy powders were packed in this storage system made of Al open cell, and the changes of temperature and equilibrium pressure of hydrogen desorbed were measured. By applying the open cell Al in this hydrogen storage system, the reaction sensitivity of the temperature and equilibrium pressure was far rapidly increased than that without the open cell Al.
