Filter silencers for fuel cell blowers and compressor FS/2G/QB Series
- Most common air contaminants present in operating environments are SO2 and NOx. Fuel cells are sensitive to these compounds as well as salts and VOCs which can enter the process via the intake air. Installation locations can be harsh, raising the importance for particulate removal. Maximizing air purity for the cathode is essential for optimizing a PEM fuel cell.
- The reduction of noise of fuel cells and their components is becoming increasingly important today. To minimize the noise level of both mobile and stationary solutions, it is often sufficient to use silencers that cancel out a wide range of frequencies. In this way, fuel cell systems can be used in any environment without burdening employees and the environment with noise.
