Solid Oxide Fuel Cell essentially works by merging of hydrogen rich gas and oxygen to create water and carbon dioxide, and obtaining electric current with this chemical reaction. Gases and liquids called “fuel” that contain hydrogen in its composition are used in SOFC as hydrogen source. Diesel, natural gas or alcohols can be given as examples. Air is used for oxygen source. Fuel and air react through a membrane to create water, carbon dioxide and electric energy. In this context, critical technology related to SOFC is the membrane. There are channels graved in metal to circulate hydrogen rich gas and air around the membrane. Metal with these channels allow collection of the created current since it also touches the membrane. This structure is called cell. A stack is obtained by piling these cells to reach the required energy amount.
Lantanium Stronisium Manganite (LSM) Cathode Paste. LSM paste comprising of high quality LSM powders can be applied as cathode paste for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). This paste may be applied directly as a cathode layer while producing your own cell, in addition it can be used for improving electrical contact between cell cathode and current collection elements (interconnector, screen or meshed material) during cell characterization tests or real operation.
Nickel Oxide (NiO) Anode Paste. NiO paste comprising of high quality nickel oxide powders can be applied as cathode paste for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). This paste may be applied for improving electrical contact between cell cathode and current collection elements (interconnector, screen or meshed material) during cell characterization tests or real operation.
Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Membranes developed by Vestel are produced in two different types as ScSZ and YSZ based. Anode and cathode layers of the structure which essentially consists of anode, electrolyte and cathode consists of two layers respectively as functional and current collector. These electrolyte supported products have high performance as well as long service life thanks to their five layered design.
Can provide ~1,3 kW power in average under ~800oC operating temperature thanks to its original design…
