Stationary fuel cells
Generate electrical power and heat with low emissions
The process waste heat of stationary fuel cell systems in buildings is fed into the heating circuit of the building. So, besides electrical energy, also heat is „produced“ out of natural gas through the fuel cell. This increases the effectiveness of the system while reducing emissions.
Valves, engineered for long endurance
Stationary fuel cells are generally powered by natural gas, that is fed through pressure regulator valves precisely into the reformer unit of the system. Since such systems are typically installed within closed rooms, the valves must be absolutely gas tight, both internally and externally, which is also subject to the DVGW-approval. As part of a building equipment, the valve has to have a high level of life expectancy.
Also in such stationary system, one additional switching valve is integrated in order to periodically drain the condensate without releasing unconsumed gaseous fuel at the same time.
