Modulization of the humidifier unit and unitization of other peripherals for a more compact fuel cell system

In order to maximize space efficiency in the fuel cell system box, the FCX uses two FC stacks that have been made lighter and more compact through the use of stamped metal separators. The resulting layout freedom is utilized to enable a unitized construction for the humidifier module. Structural components have also been combined and other peripherals unitized to create a highly efficient layout for the system, achieving a more compact fuel cell system box.

Improved productivity and recyclability
The stamped metal separators can be formed using ordinary metal stamping technology and feature unitized seals, resulting in major savings in production time. This results in improved productivity. And because metal is used, the unit is also easier to recycle, further improving the FC Stack’s prospects for future large-scale commercialization.
