Pragma PRO-RD Fuel Cell Stacks

Designed to meet the stringent demands of fuel cell scientists and professionals, these offer durability, performance and scalability.  Their uses include:

  • Advanced research on MEAs
  • Investigation of thermal effects in stacks
  • Advanced fuel cell training
  • Fuel cell systems integration
  • Quick-start implementation of fuel cell labs

Pro-RD FCS is fully modular from one to ten cells or more. Scale down or up can be achieved in lab environment by the user with simple tools. Made of thick (6mm) graphite bipolar separators, the stack can be generously equipped with sensors to investigate the behaviour of MEAs.

KEY FEATURES

  • Stack can be taken apart and rebuilt to change MEAs or insert sensors
  • Bipolar plates have built-in gaskets
  • Stack power can easily be scaled by adding/removing cells
  • Optimal thermal management with cooling fluid circulation in each plate
  • Stack is delivered with complete instruction guide

INCLUDES

  • Mono-polar plates with selected flow-fields design
  • Gold plated current collectors
  • Anodized aluminium or stainless steel compression plates with guiding pins
  • Integrated heating cartridges
  • Type-k thermocouple
  • Voltage sense pins
  • Gaskets and insulating material
  • Gas connectors
  • Set of nuts, rods, washers
