The advantage of the 4-electrode in-plane conductivity measurement is the ability to measure impedance (resistance) due only to charge transport and exclude interfacial and charge transfer resistances. By considering only resistance due to ion transport, accurate assessment of in-plane membrane conductivity can be made.
Assemble your bare membrane sample into the Conductivity Cell. The Conductivity Cell is then assembled into your Scribner Associates (SAI) or Fuel Cell Technologies, Inc. fuel cell hardware.
Connect the fuel cell hardware to your test stand to control the temperature, humidity, gas type, and pressure of the membrane sample under test.
- Cell is rated to 120 °C
- High Temperature Option available – to 200 °C
- Gas Flow Rates: Determined by your test stand parameters
- Pressure: Determined by your test stand parameters
- Use with the Scribner Associates or Fuel Cell Technologies 5, 10, and 25 cm2 fuel cell test hardware
