ROMTEK METHANOL FUEL CELL - MFC - APPARATUS


Model No:

NCE-02

Romtek ® is the registered trade mark of Bhushan & Bhushan


Short Description

Romtek Methanol Fuel Cell Apparatus demonstrates & enables detailed experiments on Direct Fuel Cell operating on Methanol. It incorporates multidisciplinary technologies and is useful to educators & experimenters working in Physics & Chemistry; Electronics & Mechanical Engineering & Non Conventional Energy Sciences. How it Works The Methanol Fuel Cell accepts unimolar solution of methanol in distilled water & takes Oxygen from atmosphere. They react in a catalytic converter to generate electricity, Carbon dioxide & Water. Methanol fuel Cell (& all other fuel Cells) for that matter, are different from batteries & accumulators as (1) the battery becomes discharged & has to be discarded once the reactants are used up and (2) an accumulator requires recharging. A fuel cell can be used without charging / discharging, so long as it is kept refueled by reactants. Technical Data Experiments: 1 Measurement & Plotting the characteristics curve (V vs I) and (P vs I) of Methanol Fuel Cell (MFC). 2 Impact of Methanol Concentration on MFC performance. 3 Measurement of mileage of Methanol Fuel Cell Car. 4 Measurement of horsepower of Methanol Fuel Cell Car Engine. 5 Observation of working & properties peculiar to Methanol Fuel Cell. 6 Comparative Study of Hydrogen & Methanol Fuel Cell. This Expt is possible if you have any one of our apparatus on Hydrogen Fuel Cell.
