PRO-RD
FUEL CELL STACKS

DESCRIPTION

Pro-RD Fuel Cell Stacks are designed by Pragma Industries for the stringent demand of fuel cell scientists and professionals.

Built for long life performance and scalability, they fit the needs for those who want to:
– do advanced research on MEAs
– investigate thermal effects in stacks
– perform professional training
– integrate fuel cell systems
– quick start a fuel cell lab

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 heavily equipped with sensors to investigate MEAs behavior.

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

PACKAGE INCLUDES

– Monopolar plates with selected flowfields design
– Gold plated current collectors
– Anodized aluminum 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
