Zinc-air batteries on the rise - FuelCon AG develops new system for testing zinc-air batteries
In order to support researchers in responding to the current scientific and technical challenges, FuelCon has designed a test system for the special requirements of zinc-air batteries. The system of the “Evaluator” series provides both, material characterization and life cycle testing in a power range up to 5kW. The innovative process engineering includes equipping the test system with multiple storage tanks for liquid media. This allows circulation of the zinc paste either through one storage tank (continuous flow) or via two different tanks (single pass) when life cycle test are performed. In order to ensure a constant concentration the tanks are continuously purged with nitrogen. All critical test system components such as tanks, pipes, valves and sensors are made of plastic (PFA, PVDF, PTFE). This avoids a corrosion of the components by aggressive media.
Extensive safety features for protecting persons, test item and laboratory environment complete the new Evaluator testing system. Besides the PLC, this includes, but is not limited to, a closed test cabinet made of anodized metal and an integrated ventilation system with gas warning sensors.
Consequently intelligent: that’s how we love solutions. FuelCon is the global leading supplier of test and diagnostic systems for fuel cells and batteries. For years, our name is recognized for innovative engineering and high quality, for highest safety standards and close consultation with our costumer.
With our testing systems for fuel cells we offer optimal solutions for all typical technologies like PEM, DMFC, SOFC or MCFC in a power range between a few watts up to 150kW. In addition, innovative test systems for evaluating electrolyser are available. With the “Evaluator-B” series we have developed a concept that fulfils the challenging testing requirements of modern batteries with high accuracy and flexibility. The test systems enable the comparison, evaluation and optimization of battery cells and packs, as well as simulation of different requirements for customized applications.
Aside the headquarters in Germany, FuelCon is with its subsidiary FuelCon Systems Inc. and several representatives active in Europe, North America and Asia.
