The graphite or metal bipolar plates that equally distribute the fuel and oxidant to the fuel cell’s cells are known as bipolar plates. At the output terminals, they also gather the electric current that is generated. There is no bipolar plate in a single-cell fuel cell, but there is a single-sided plate that allows electrons to flow.
There is at least one bipolar plate in fuel cells with several cells (flow control exists on both sides of the plate). The bipolar plates in the fuel cell provide a number of purposes. The distribution of fuel and oxidant within the cells, the separation of the various cells, the collection of the generated electric current, the evacuation of water from each cell, the humidification of the gases, and the cooling of the cells are a few of these functions.
Additionally, bipolar plates feature passages that permit the movement of reactants (fuel and oxidant) from one side to the other. On the opposing edges of the bipolar plate, they create the anode and cathode chambers. The flow channels’ layout might differ; they could be straight, helical, parallel, comb-like, or uniformly spaced.
The Global bipolar plates market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Dana Incorporated will present solutions for industrial transformation in the mobility sector at the Hannover Messe virtual trade show. Dana Incorporated is a global leader in the design and manufacture of highly efficient propulsion and energy-management solutions for all mobility markets.
At the conference, Dana will showcase its metallic and composite bipolar plate technology for fuel cell stacks. In order to improve the performance of the fuel cell stack, bipolar plates are a crucial component. Depending on the application and the requirements of the customer, Dana offers both metallic and composite plates.
Elcon offers photochemically etched bipolar plates that are highly strong, long-lasting, and suitable for use in a variety of harsh environments. Photochemical etching is not only a desirable manufacturing process but, in some cases, the only technology suitable for critical components due to the geometric complexity and tolerances it offers.
