BEL-SOFC is the automatic evaluation and deterioration test system for single plate
cell in SOFC. Unique sample setting mechanism enables highly reproducible measurement.
Gas composition, gas flow and temperature can be controlled by dedicated software.
Combining with electrochemical instruments, impedance, OCP and I-V properties can
be measured. Standard cell (Ni-YSZ |YSZ |LSM dia.:approx. 20mm) is prepared. It is
useful to investigate the various performances and to compare with customer's cell.
Fuel Cell Research
PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) is used as electrolyte for PEFC and FMFC. For PEM
development, it is very important to know proton conductivity and water absorption
properties. With the conventional instruments, those properties have to be measured
separately. Our newly developed system, MSB-AD-V-FC can measure water absorption
amount and proton conductivity simultaneously.
