  10. Electrochemical Hydrogen Compressor

    SBC: ANALYTIC POWER LLC            Topic: 18b

    78241S Today¿s mechanical, hydrogen compression technology is inefficient, costly, unreliable, and lacking in durability. The inefficiency is derived from the fact that piston and diaphragm compressors are, essentially, isentropic machines. The other problems mentioned above are common to electromechanical systems that have many types of moving parts. This project willl develop an electrochemi ...
