Single Electrolyzer Kit
Brand: H-TEC Education
Product Code: 1071020
The Single Electrolyzer Kit (Formerly Electrolyzer 5) isa PEM Electrolyzer with water tanks, hydrogen and oxygen storage tanks. TheSingle Electrolyzer Kit produces and stores hydrogen and oxygen simply byadding de-ionized water and an electric load. The Electrolyzer and includedtanks each have a magnetic base affixed firmly to their bottom sides so theycan placed on the black metal base plate.
The electrolyzer provided in this set ismaintenance-free. However, always remember to use fresh, distilled water eachtime and to drain the water from the storage tanks after use.

About PEM Electrolyzers
The growing significance of PEM electrolyzers mirrors thedevelopment of fuel cells. Electrolyzers generate the hydrogen required by fuelcells from water in an environmentally conscious manner. The electrical energyrequired for this purpose can be gained from renewable sources such as solarcells, wind farms or hydroelectric plants.
Water reacts in the electrolyzer under theinfluence of electrical energy according to the following formula: 2H2O= 2H2 + O2. This process takes place in the MEA(membrane electrode assembly). The MEA consists of the cathode, the anode, anda special polymer membrane (PEM) which is permeable to protons but whichpresents a barrier to electrons. Your h-tec electrolyzer functions on the PEMprinciple. The gases produced can be collected in storage tanks (H-TEC Storage 30 or Storage 80). The energy stored in chemical formin the gases can be converted back to electrical energy in a fuel cell as andwhen required.
