Fascinating working model of a hydrogen-fuel cell for a car. Designed for graphic demonstration of the practical use of hydrogen technology and a pioneering drive system.
• Robust design guarantees long working life
• Simple to operate
• Only distilled water and no corrosive fluids required
• Acrylic glass construction permits good visibility and thus better understanding of how fuel cells actually work
Fuel cells are essential components of a sustainable energy supply of the future which will ensure that modern living standards are maintained while also preserving our environment and natural resources. To store energy for regeneration, pure water is broken down into its components, hydrogen and oxygen, by means of electrolysis. Current, heat and water are produced when the gases are recombined in the fuel cell. The power is used to drive a vehicle at a speed of approx. 20 cm/s. The hydrogen fuel cell’s efficiency is about twice as high as that of a combustion engine.
After being filled up with distilled water and connected to the mains via the plug-in power supply (alternatively the solar module or battery box) the vehicle is ready to drive after just two minutes.
