OMB Saleri is promoting a new line of hydrogen valves.

The new valves meet major international standards and represent “a tangible and cost-effective contribution to a sustainable mass production of fuel cell hydrogen vehicles,” OMB Saleri says.

Dedicated Production Capacity

The company says it’s built dedicated facilities for assembly and testing of the hydrogen valves in “cleanroom” conditions, and that “investments in specific production machinery make OMB Saleri today the only company capable of offering an in-house service from concept to finished product developed specifically for OEMs.”

The product line could expand from on-road vehicles to the more established material handling telecommunications, energy and storage and transportation hydrogen sectors.

“Experts say that this is the era of hydrogen, now the industry seems to believe it and OMB Saleri is ready for the challenge,” the announcement concludes.
