    PEFC Single-Cell Testing Equipment (Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell)
    The equipment is power generating test of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFC) consisted of gas supply line, moisturizing line, cell performance measuring line and safety line. As it is small, lightweight and low temperature operation, the start-up time is short and also has high energy output density.
    The equipment is applied to initial test and endurance test of PEFCs which will be utilized in small sized industrial uses, home uses, portable uses and in-vehicle uses.
    Stable humidification control, Humidification unit water temperature (+30°C to 90°C), Long term stable operation by humidification unit self-cleaning system, High-speed humidification response (within 3 min - option)
    Models
    Type A: Material of gas supply part - SUS
    Type B: Material of gas supply part - CU
    Fuel utilizing ratio constant control (with program function)
    Electric characteristics can be checked by changing moisturizing volume.
    Constant current load control can be done by using electronic load. (with program function)
    The equipment can be used as an initial testing equipment and an endurance testing equipment.
    Safety functions like as temperature independent dual safety
    Dimension W600 x H1000 x D600mm
    Color 2.5Y9/1
    Power supply 1 200VAC 15A
    Weight About 100kg
    Gas supply line
    It receives gas from 0.4MPa to 1MPa and supplies it to a fuel cell. In addition, it has a safety function to cut anode and cathode gas at alarm activated and to automatically purge nitrogen gas to the equipment and the fuel cell.
    Moisturizing line
    Moisturizing volume (moisturizing temperature control) is an important item for cell performance. The moisturizing unit in this equipment utilizes precision temperature control system using resistance thermometer, and is using techniques of high efficiency vapor-liquid contact by SUS316L bubbler and protection of dew-condensation after moisturizing. The capacity of the moisturizing unit is 8-hour/day. Liquid-crystal display unit is used to display cell information of generated voltage and current and to set alarm information, power generation start, etc. sequentially. In addition, fuel utilizing ratio constant control (automatic settings of anode and cathode gas flow proportioning to load current).
    Safety line
    For heater line, independent dual safety function, high limit alarm of controller and separate alarm unit, are built-in. Safety operation are heater power supply turning off, fuel cell/oxidizing reagent supply stopping, automatic purging of nitrogen in each pole, and electronic load unit [OA] for safety of equipment and cell.
