moehwald offers testing solutions for development and production of SOFC (Solid Oxid Fuel Cell) cell stacks.
Our full stack and short stack test benches are designed for function tests and validation of the short stacks and the complete stacks with real gaseous mixtures.
With it multiple mix options with high accurate massflow controllers for N2, H2, CO2, CO, H2O, CH4 and natural gas at temperature up to 700°C are possible.
By integrated combustion gas- and air preheaters as well as reliable humidifier solutions the chemical and thermal system environment for the stack is optimally simulated.
Additional features of the test benches are:
Programmable sequence software for fully automatic, unattended operation including safety functions for operator and stack.
Dashboard solution to monitor and evaluate the test results In-house developed „hotbox“ for the temperature adjustments and the gaseous mixture preparation including reforming process.
Mono or bidirectional load, high accurate cell voltage measurement, solutions for integration of gas analysis and customer data base.
The test benches can be used for validation in development or endurance work as well as for the end of line tests in the production.
Before delivery all test benches are going through extensive hot tests with real gaseous mixtures in our in-house test field. Special request by the customer regarding function upgrades could be individually be implemented in close coordination with the customer.
