Remote Power Generators

Microwave TowerSolid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) from Acumentrics are ideal for off-grid locations where a clean, quiet, efficient and reliable power source is required. Delivering from 250W to 10 kW of DC or AC power, our SOFC products perform well in continuous operation in a wide range of environmental conditions. Based on our unique tubular cell design, these systems are fueled primarily by natural gas or propane.

At Acumentrics, we are experienced in delivering mission critical power. The US military relies on our uninterruptible power supplies (Rugged-UPS™) because they are tough enough to endure wind, dust, heat, cold, vibration, shock, and even blowing sand. When people need durable power, they call Acumentrics. Our fuel cell development is focused on products for the military and we apply that knowledge and experience to our commercial fuel cell products.

With our Remote Power Generators you can increase electrical efficiency, reduce maintenance costs, and virtually eliminate greenhouse gas emissions. As an example, replacing a single thermoelectric generator operating at 150 watts with an Acumentrics SOFC will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by over 50 tons per year.

Features

  • Efficient: Peak electrical efficiencies between 40-50%; up to 90% total efficiency with heat recovery.
  • Internal scrubbing: Negligible nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur oxides (SOx) output; reduced carbon dioxide (CO2 ) output.
  • Solid State Generator: Solid state ceramic fuel cell tube construction.
  • Fuel-flexible: Compatible with natural gas, propane, biofuels, LPG, H2.
  • Site flexible: Small scale package is easy to site.
  • Simple fuel hook-up: Fuels can be stored onsite or delivered at residential line pressures. No external or internal pressure boosting required.
  • Communications ready: Monitoring and control by internet access via land-based, cellular or satellite networks.
  • Rapid start-up: Capable of 30 minutes or less depending on system size.
