Project Description

Mohawk Innovative Technology will develop a ceramic heat exchanger with high effectiveness and low pressure drop to work as a preheater for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) application. The objectives for the project include R&D work to select a design, material, and fabrication method for the heat exchanger followed by component tests under relevant SOFC conditions.

Project Benefits

This project may lead to the development of an advanced manufacturing technique for ceramic materials and the design and fabrication of a ceramic heat exchanger that exhibits high effectiveness and low pressure drop for application in a 50kW SOFC unit.
