The 28 cm2 Cell Test Manifold Kit offers a highly effective solution for testing of individual planar solid oxide fuel cells. The kit contains all items necessary to easily mount cells with ~100 cm2 substrates. Designed for both long and short term experiments to measure properties such as fuel utilization, thermal gradients, red-ox cycling and longevity/degradation, these kits will accelerate your research and development activities.
The manifolds have optimal gas flow configurations, sealing surfaces and electrical connections to enhance reproducibility and they have a low chrome content to minimize cathode contamination. The kit has solutions for sealing and interconnection that make it possible to begin to take measurements quickly and easily. Spare parts readily available to keep you running. A custom designed furnace is available as an optional item.
***NEW*** Silver (Ag) interconnection for testing up to 850°C without the expense of platinum
