1kWe SOFC stack incorporating MICROX sensors at MTEC, Thailand

 

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) offer clean, high efficiency, silent power generation and promise to play a key role in the emerging hydrogen economy.  Hydrogen and oxygen measurement is vital at the R&D stage, and for monitoring SOFC stack performance. EMC’s MICROX range of sensors  are ideally suited to SOFC applications. Examples include:

Cathode oxygen supply monitoring
   
  Monitoring of internal hydrogen reforming
   
Fuel utilisation measurement
   
   

MICROX sensors are as easy to deploy as a standard metal sheathed thermocouple:

Small diameter (~3mm) allows mounting where space is a
  premium
   
  Metal sheath can be bent allowing measurement in hard to reach
  areas
   
Good impact resistance
   
Affordable
   
Standard lengths: 0.25m, 0.5m, 1m (others available on request)
   
Available as MICROX H (hydrogen sensor) and MICROX O (oxygen
  sensor)
