Market Leader in Hydrogen Sealing Technologies
Proven Hydrogen Experience
John Crane produced the first hydrogen gas seal in 1979, and we have since supplied more than 3,500 dry gas seal units into various hydrogen applications in refining and chemical facilities.
Broad Portfolio Range
Our portfolio consists of a wide range of enabling technologies, including gas and wet seals, systems, filtration and couplings for hydrogen, ammonia and methanol applications.
Investing in New Technologies
Compressing and filtering hydrogen is much more challenging than other gases. We are actively investing in new designs and advanced materials for higher speed applications such as in hydrogen pipelines and liquefaction.

Blue Hydrogen and Carbon Capture Technologies
Enabling Canada’s Largest Blue Hydrogen Facility
John Crane was selected to provide sealing technologies for one of the world’s largest blue hydrogen production sites located in Alberta, Canada. The project demonstrated blue hydrogen and carbon capture technologies from the facility’s steam methane reformer units. The site is now capturing up to ~1.2 million tonnes (Mt) per year of carbon dioxide, which is then transported and permanently stored over two kilometers below the earth’s surface in a deep saline aquifer.
Seal Performance Delivered Reliability in Hydrogen Applications
Since becoming operational in 2015, John Crane’s pump seals and seal support systems provided have operated in line with expectations and have consistently delivered a high Mean Time Between Repair (MTBR). This enables reliable and clean operations for the end user.Learn more
