Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cell Hardware is an electrochemical device that converts phosphoric acid into energy and water.  This item includes all the key components to make such reactions occur.  It also performs compression of the membrane electrode assembly (MEA) while providing uniform gas distribution and uniform temperature to the cell.

A gold-plated plate serves as current collector plate for the fuel cell.  The gold plating provides corrosion protection and good electrical contact with the graphite separator plate.  A high purity graphite plate with high electrical conductivity (900 Scm-1) and high thermal conductivity (117 Wm-1K-1) is designed with gas flow channels and manifold.  A Gasket is included to provide a secured seal for the MEA.  High power silicon rubber heaters are installed at both ends of the fuel cell to maintain a constant cell temperature.
