Hydrogen fuel cells have a reputation of being delicate devices; unfortunately, when manufactured using traditional techniques this reputation isn’t too far from the truth. Brittle, graphite components and constructions and an ambition to lightweight and low volume has led to a reputation of ‘cotton wool required’ when it comes to fuel cells.
However, Bramble Energy’s patent protected manufacturing route which provides leverage through the printed circuit board (PCB) industry has finally provided mass manufacturable fuel cells with the construction to shake this reputation.
Just have a look at what we’ve been up to in the lab today 😊.
You’re unlikely to see too many other fuel cell hardware suppliers trying that on their modules! The reason that we at Bramble Energy are able to produce such robust modules is a direct result of the incorporation of the PCB within our design. Printed circuit boards are notoriously strong and can be manufactured in a range of configurations with a huge variety of layer options.
As a hydrogen fuel cell component, PCB’s couldn’t be more useful as etching specific areas provides access to both conductive and insulative elements in one plane. We can strip out many of the traditional fuel cell components, such as the need for separate sealing materials and reduce the overall system weight, number of parts and complexity without affecting the system’s build quality or performance.
At Bramble Energy we’re really quite happy with having some of the most robust fuel cell modules available. Oh, and did we mention they’re also some of the most competitively priced systems on the market? With performance to match any competitor?
