Infinite Composites Technologies has become the first company that produces liner-less all-composite pressure vessels to receive the high recognition of their Quality Management System – the certificate AS9100D.
Infinite Composites Technologies (ICT) is a producer of all-composite vessels of the 5 generation (without a liner) designed for the pressurized gas. Currently, the most popular reinforcement for this vessel type is carbon and glass. However, basalt fiber and aramid fibers like Kevlar have been increasingly used of late due to the contrasting mechanical properties such as impact resistance, and low temperature resistance.
Liner less all-composite vessels is a remarkable step forward in the technology development. The lack of an inner plastic liner considerably reduces the weight of a cylinder or a tank, so the fuel weight can exceed the cylinder weight itself. The lack of an inner reinforcing liner also provides users with more fuel storage compared to other composite tanks.
These qualities are in great demand in the aerospace, automotive and heavy vehicles as well as in the fields, where the weight and size of a cylinder or a fuel tank are critically important and leads to significant economic benefits, estimated from hundreds to thousands millions of dollars.
