Special tests for cell components

Special tests are performed on behalf of customers to characterise cell components. We have a wide range of methods available that provide information on design, the prevention of ageing effects and the behaviour of catalysts under defined operating conditions. The following studies can be performed individually or as part of larger-scale projects:

  • Power density distribution
  • Electrochemical characterisation (impedance spectrometry, cyclic voltammetry and XRD)
  • Post-test studies

Please see the enclosed PDF for detailed information on Special fuel cell test.

Water balance

Water management is a central topic for the optimisation of gas distributor structures and gas diffusion electrodes of fuel cells.  ZSW uses measurements with neutrons or synchrotron (X-ray) rays for this.

Please see the enclosed PDF for detailed information about Water balance.
