An ion exchange filter removes dissolved ions from fluids. One fluid in a fuel cell is the coolant. Similar to the coolant used in automobiles, fuel cell coolant is a mix of water and ethylene glycol. The critical difference is that fuel cell coolant can cause major problems if it becomes conductive:

Conductive fluid leaks voltage which lowers the electricity produced by the fuel cell. The heart of the fuel cell, the membrane, can also be damaged by a short circuit through conductive fluid. Our PROTECT+ion Omniflow reduces the critical factor of conductivity to keep fuel cells effective.

PROTECT+ion Omniflow’s advantages can be applied to numerous applications including:

  • Automotive
  • Electrolyzer Cells
  • Fuel Cell Stacks
  • Heavy Duty (i.e. forklifts)
  • Hydrogen Fueling Stations

A Chinese firm installed our ion exchange filter in their Fuel Cell Backup Power to reduce conductivity. As a result, instead of changing their cooling water every two weeks, they now change it once a year.
