Fuel cell test equipment for SOFC

Our Evaluator-HT fuel cell test stations are proven solutions to be used for SOFC specific requirements: long-term studies, performance tests and material characterization of single cells, components, stacks, hot boxes or complete systems. In addition, we offer sintering stations for stack assembling as well as systems for the quality management of MEA production.

Evaluator-HT testing stations ensure an efficient completion of automated test programs and thermal cycles at temperatures up to 1,100 °C.

The fuel cell test systems are equipped with proven furnace designs as well as various modules for reproducible, defined adjustment of single cells or stacks. Various mixing options for the input gases allow the simulation of any fuel gas scenario.

All SOFC test stations can be equipped with appropriate modules or be retrofitted to test SOEC/rSOC.

Depending on the SOFC fuel cell testing requirements, we offer different classes of test stations:
