It is an aluminum cylinder with a shrouded connector that locks into the AP2C’s handle.
The device is filled with hydrogen adsorbed on to lanthanum nickel powder.
The advantage of this method is that a large quantity of hydrogen can be stored without pressure, thus providing reliability in use and storage.
By using a refilling bench, the cartridge can be refilled 25 times with hydrogen (Ref.: M175 E00 000).
The hydrogen storage device can be stored for 10 years.
