Director of materials engineering, Dover Precision Components
Burak holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University and has over 20 years of experience in high-performance polymers and advanced composite materials, particularly for sealing applications in the energy industry. He is currently the director of materials engineering at Dover Precision Components. In this role, he leads a research and development team in the formulation, process development, simulation, and testing of high-end sealing and bearing materials for reciprocating and rotating equipment. His research over the years has resulted in a long list of publications, patents, and awards.
Challenges Associated with High Pressure, Non-Lubricated, Hydrogen Reciprocating Compression
Existing hydrogen applications for reciprocating compression units are well known, including hydrocracking and other refining applications. The emerging energy market for hydrogen storage, injection, and fuelling applications present new challenges such as smaller footprints, difficulty with non-lubricated sealing at required high pressures, and the need for new test methods and novel test equipment. This presentation will discuss several challenges associated with hydrogen compression and, through case studies, illustrate our approach to solving them.
