This work is devoted to studying the accumulation of hydrogen in titanium coatings to use a completely new concept of hydrogen accumulators based on a system of easily replaceable cartridges. Modern hydrogen accumulators based on magnesium powder have several problems associated with uneven heating during hydrogen desorption. Increasing the efficiency of hydrogen accumulators and the possibility of their reuse and/or repair remains a topical problem. For the analysis of the microstructure of the received titanium coatings, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used, the structural-phase state was studied using x-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. The coatings were hydrogenation by gas-phase saturation at 450–550◦ C. Increased film thickness reduced the storage capacity of coatings. Besides hydrogenation at 450◦ C, 20 µm of titanium coatings accumulated 3.96 wt.%, while 80 µm of coatings accumulated 3.98 wt.%. The chemical composition of the coatings before and after the hydrogenation was controlled using glow-discharge optical emission spectroscopy.
