Fuel cells produce electricity from a wide variety of chemical reactions promoted by a chemical catalyst. The process is generally a hydrogen-oxygen reaction that generates water as by-product. There are many types of such fuel cells, with operating temperatures ranging from 70 °C to 1000 °C.
Applications using fuel cells are generally characterized by a demand for low and clean emissions, low noise, high efficiency, or long-term energy storage requirements. Examples include spacecraft, auxiliary power units for military or mobile use, decentralized urban power generation, or simply high-tech, green electricity and heat production.
We have been supplying producers of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells with copper-free heat exchangers for stack cooling and exhaust gas heat recovery for more than a decade. We also supply brazed plate heat exchangers in a wide range of capacities for fuel-processing equipment.
The B5T enables efficient heat exchange in applications with small flows and extreme demands for compactness. Easy to install and use, the product is small yet versatile, which makes it a good choice for small oil or water coolers.
The large-port B12 delivers compact heat transfer solutions for applications with large flows. It is available with different plate patterns to fulfil various thermal duties across a wide range of fluid viscosities and densities. The B12 is an excellent choice for demanding steam and air dryer…
The B120T has been specially developed to operate in demanding heating and industrial applications, typically water-water applications and oil coolers. The product has contributed to the rapid switch to BPHEs from traditional gasket plate heat exchangers and shell-and-tube solutions. It is widely…
