MATERIALS (SOFC, SOEC, PCFC)
fuelcellmaterials was established in 2000 to commercialize innovative ceramic materials technology and products as a wholly owned division of Nexceris. These technologies and products are suited to the development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) and fuel processors, which include: test fixtures, powders, pastes catalysts and components.
fuelcellmaterials is backed by its dedicated staff of material scientists and engineers who deliver high-quality materials and assist in helping our customers meet their needs. This high-level of expertise allows our staff to quickly and accurately tailor our powders and components to fit the needs and processes of our customers. These changes can be as simple as a physical property change or as complex streamlining to a material to work with specific applications.
Our Material Products
fuelcellmaterials offers a variety of substrate components for the development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC). Gadolinium Doped Ceria (GDC or CGO), Yttria-Stabilized Zirconia, and our patented HionicTM substrates are available in multiple sizes. 20 mm to 32 mm buttons and 5 cm x 5 cm sizes are available.
Whether you’re testing anode button cells or large 10 cm x 10 cm electrolyte supported cells, fuelcellmaterials has the equipment needed to gather successful results. We are the exclusive supplier of the Norecs ProbostatTM button cell test fixture. Over the years we have improved our planar test fixture design to ensure reproducible data is collected.
All of our fixtures can be incorporated into complete systems with a furnace and test stand.
Nexceris Participated in a DOE Hydrogen Shot Summit Panel Focused on Clean Hydrogen Production Through Electrolysis
The Hydrogen Shot is part of a larger DOE Energy Earthshots Initiative aimed to accelerate breakthroughs of more abundant, affordable, and reliable clean energy solutions in this decade. Nexceris’ own Scott Swartz, Chief Technology Officer, was a panelist of a breakout session on High Temperature (Solid Oxide) Electrolysis.
Nexceris recently participated in the virtual ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit and was able to connect with many energy industry experts by describing their Phase II project aimed at a solid oxide fuel cell based hybrid power system.
