Building on the strong history of PEM fuel cell research and test data using 5cm² cells, the Electrically Heated PEM Research Cell is a robust development tool using well established materials, techniques and quick assembly features.  These features make it ideally suited for sample screening, research and development, and educational purposes.

Fluids are in contact with materials that have proven compatibility with PEM fuel cells, which include ultem, fuel cell grade graphite plates, stainless steel (SS316) and silicone.

The unique sealing gaskets are simple, and reliably accommodate MEA's of varying thickness.

No tools are required for assembly / dissassembly and with the integrated pneumatic bladder you will always be able to monitor cell compression.  Ports are provided into each manifold and can be used for either temperature or pressure monitoring.

The PEMFC Research Cell is intended for use as a single cell and uses electric heater plattens for temperature control. Additional plate sets can be added to create a stack that generates more power using standard MEAs.
