  • Case Study: Mocon Fuel Cell Testing Services
    efficiency will decrease as the membrane gets too thin This is most likely a result of the permeation rate of hydrogen and oxygen through the membrane This interaction between the gasses and the membrane has led the manufacturer to research a target permeation rate for the fuel hydrogen and the oxidant oxygen through the membrane material A request was sent to MOCON to determine these permeation rates Due to the operating conditions of a fuel cell and the characteristics of the material MOCON needed to develop a method to analyze the hydrogen permeation rates at elevated temperatures and pressures Typically permeation rates will rise with both increases of pressure and temperature however the rates were unknown This permeation rate is required for the development of the specifications in the anode and cathode structure for both material type and thickness The oxygen permeation rates were analyzed using current MOCON patented technology employed today with modifications to the methodology Many of the materials used in the fuel cell stack are brittle especially when unsupported The method developed supported the material and continued to allow the diffusion of the permeated gasses to the sensor The apparatus allowed the materials to withstand changes in

  • The Benefits Of Coulometric Sensors In Oxygen Transmission Rate Testing
    predicted by Faraday s Law When oxygen enters the coulometric sensor it reacts to release four free electrons This is detected by the sensor as an electrical current the magnitude of which is proportional to the amount of oxygen flowing into the sensor per unit time Every oxygen molecule that enters the sensor is analyzed allowing a measurement of the oxygen transmission rate OTR that is 95 98 efficient MOCON

  • 3 Methods For Measuring Volatile And Organic Compounds (VOCS)
    molecules to evaporate or sublimate from the liquid or solid form of the compound and enter the surrounding air The higher the volatility of the compound and the lower the boiling point the more molecules will evaporate In fact some VOCs are gases at room temperature These compounds are commonly found in building materials furnishings textiles cleaning supplies and personal care products examples include formaldehyde acetone ethanol ethyl alcohol propane and toluene Reasons to measure the permeation rates of VOCs are to ensure that they will maintain their functionality such as in the case of personal care products like mouthwash keep drug components in solution and maintain proper ratios for FDA labeling maintain acceptable flavor and aroma for food products contain hazardous gases and keep hazards out such as preventing gasoline vapor from permeating into snack packaging at a gas station There are three general methods for measuring permeation of VOCs gravimetric manometric and electronic sensor based The driving force concentrations and test conditions in all three methods may not be true to real life conditions due to detection limits and safety concerns but each of them has its preferred applications for VOC permeation testing MOCON Inc Contact The Supplier
