Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells

Used in medium to large stationary applications and with a high-efficiency output, molten carbonate fuel cells are an important fuel cell for industrial applications. A robust and efficient filtering system is crucial to maintaining your fuel cells and the machines they power.

How Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells Work

Molten carbonate fuel cells use molten carbonate salt as the electrolyte. As the fuel cell is heated, the salt is melted and carbonate ions travel through the electrolyte to the cathode. Molten carbonate fuel cells can heat up to 600 degrees Celsius, enabling them to operate at high levels for stationary power.

Applications of Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells

Thanks to the high-efficiency levels of these fuel cells, industries are starting to make use of molten carbonate fuel cells where stationary power requires robust levels of operations:

  • Coal-based power plants: Power plants use molten carbonate fuel cells for stationary generators and machines.
  • Military applications: Suitable for stationary power generation to power generators, maintenance and testing equipment.
  • Automotive industry: The transportation industry uses molten carbonate fuel cells to power stationary machines and testing equipment in large manufacturing plants.
  • Natural gas: Those producing natural gas find the efficiency and high-output levels of molten carbonate fuel cells imperative for large, stationary machines.
  • Marine and Navy: The maritime industry uses molten carbonate fuel cells to power ship propulsion.

Filters Used With Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells

Molten carbonate fuel cells operate at high temperatures. Their ability to reform fuels demands higher filtering capacities for clean, superior components. Filter molten carbonate fuel cells with the following filters:

  • 21 Series: Our 21 Series Mini In-Line filters provide an economical, lightweight solution for valves, gauges, hydraulic systems, meters and more. With micron ratings from two to 300 Micron and precision pleated stainless steel discs, you’re assured of robust filter levels that protect your equipment and increase longevity.
  • HY31 Series: Keep components clean and working efficiently in your warehouse or manufacturing plant. This HY31 Series In-Line filter delivers premium filtering for maximum output.
  • HY41 Series: Boost output levels by keeping your industrial equipment contaminant-free with our HY41 Series Mini In-Line filter. This robust filter offers several micron ratings for effective filtration. Increase productivity with a solution that maintains the health of your systems.
  • HY51 Series: Molten carbonate fuel cells can withstand high temperatures, requiring high-pressure filter systems. This HY51 Series T-Type filter will effectively clean the fuel cells of industrial machines and parts, furthering production and efficiency.
