Acumentrics Fuel Cell Generators
Off-Grid Power for Cathodic Protection and other Natural Gas Production and Pipeline Applications
The Acumentrics RP500™ remote power generator is a quiet, clean and reliable 500W DC power generator that uses fuel cell technology to serve remote, off-grid applications. The core of the Acumentrics RP500 remote power generator is a solid-state, ceramic tubular fuel cell. The system has few moving parts with no motor oil, coolant or hydraulic fluids to change or potentially spill. The Acumentrics RP500 remote power generator is compact, easy to install and maintain – standard maintenance is an annual site visit to change air and fuel filters. Because the Acumentrics RP500 is scalable and modular, install only as much power as needed, with the option to add more as required.
Advanced Fuel Cell Technology from Acumentrics
Within the Acumentrics RP500 unit, a fuel cell electrochemically converts a fuel's energy directly into DC electric power. The RP500 remote power generator consumes natural gas or propane, but it does not burn or combust the fuel as in an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) Genset or a Thermoelectric Generator (TEG). This electrochemical conversion allows the Acumentrics RP500 to be inherently more efficient than combustion generators so that it can deliver more useable energy from the same amount of fuel. The user benefits from significant fuel/cost savings and:
Acumentrics RP500 Nominated for Materials Performance (MP) Magazine's Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award
The second annual MP Readers' Choice Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards committee has recently approved the nomination of the Acumentrics RP500 as a groundbreaking technological advance that could directly benefit the corrosion prevention and mitigation industry. MP readers will chose the top 10 corrosion innovations for this year through online voting that will start on Monday, December 17, 2012. The 10 innovations with the highest number of online reader votes will be announced at the NACE International CORROSION 2013 Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida.
