Flow Battery

A flow battery is a rechargeable electrochemical device in which electrolytes containing electroactive elements flow through a cell membrane that converts chemical energy into electricity.

Fuel Cell

A device that converts the chemical energy from hydrogen into electricity through an electrochemical reaction.  An oxidant such as oxygen is also required, and fuel cells can produce electricity continuously for as long as these inputs are supplied.

Fuel Cell Power

When a hydrogen-rich fuel (i.e. clean natural gas or renewable biogas) enters the a cell stack it reacts electrochemically with oxygen (i.e. ambient air) to produce electric current, heat and water.

Fuel Cell Testing

A fuel cell test offers the ability to automatically test, control, and monitor the performance of fuel cells and stacks.

Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCV)

An electric drive vehicle that uses a fuel cell as the source of the electrical energy. Like all electric vehicles, FCV’s are zero emission vehicles (ZEV), emitting only water vapor and heat.

Fuel Gas

A fuel, that under standard temperature and pressure, is gaseous in nature. The hydrogen (H2) produced by Proton OnSite hydrogen gas generators can be used as a fuel gas for fuel cell applications.

Fueling

To provide a source of energy to a device or vehicle. To supply a device or vehicle with fuel.

Fully-automated Design

A design by which an operator is not required. A fully-automated design controls (automates) itself through a network of sensors and programs which regulate speed, temperature, solution, or gas levels, etc.

Gas Chromatography (GC)

Gas chromatography is a technique used to separate and analyze compounds that can be vaporized without being decomposed. The stationary phase is coated along the outside of a column in which a carrier gas causes the compound to separate (elute) at different rates. This difference in separation time is known as retention time. Hydrogen gas can be used as a mobile phase, replacing helium's high cost and dwindling supply.
