120kW Liquid Cooled Hydrogen Fuel Cell VL-Series

The 120kW is an advanced hydrogen fuel cell system that Horizon sells, and this PEM fuel cells system has the highest power rating of any fuel cell stack that Horizon offers.  It is the same stack that is currently powering Class 8 trucks around the world, and it is capable of meeting energy requirements anywhere in the mobility sector.  If the intended use case for this fuel cell requires more than 120kW, then it is possible to link multiple fuel cell stacks together in order to achieve the needed power requirement.  This fuel cell stack can also replace an existing gasoline or diesel engine, which would enable such a vehicle to be transformed into a zero emission vehicle (ZEV).   There is currently no powertrain that is more environmentally friendly than hydrogen fuel cell technology, especially in hard to abate parts of the global economy.

Additional Infromation

Because of the use cases for this fuel cell stack you will need to fill out a quote request form so that we can provide you with any information you need in order to integrate this product into your project.  It is important to reach out to us for fuel cell stacks that produce more than 20kW of power, since this enables us to set proper delivery expectations.  As with the other liquid cooled stacks, this fuel cell system comes with an air filter, air flow meter, hydrogen intel solenoid valve, humidifier, throttle valve, radiator, ion exchange, controller, fuel cell stack, fill water tank, fuel cell 24V water pump, constant voltage DC, and blower to bring air into the fuel cell stack.

Fuel Cell and Hydrogen

Safety Requirements

Do not attach or detach power cables when the fuel cell stack is turned on.

Warranty is void if the fuel cell stack is dismantled or otherwise modified.

Hydrogen is a colorless, odorless, and flammable substance.  Always operate and store the fuel cell stacks and hydrogen storage canisters in an area with ample ventilation.

Fuel cell systems should always be equipped with a highly accurate hydrogen sensor to detect any hydrogen that has escaped within the system or from the hydrogen storage canister.

Please refer to the VL II-120 User Manual to see the full list of the safety requirements for the product.

List of core VL-120 components and their functionality:

  • Air filter (Filter the air)
  • Air flow meter (Monitoring feedback of air flow)
  • Hydrogen heat exchanger (Increase the temperature of reaction hydrogen)
  • Intercooler (Reduce the temperature of the air entering the fuel cell stack)
  • Humidifier (Adds moisture to the air entering the stack)
  • Bypass valve (Divert excess air from the air compressor and protect the stack in case of emergency)
  • Throttle valve (Adjust the internal operating pressure of the stack)

 

  • Radiator (Take away the excess heat from the system)
  • PTC heater (Heating for low temperature cold start)
  • Water tank (Refill water to and purge air for the system)
  • Deionizer (Absorbs the ions in the coolant, reducing the conductivity of the coolant)
  • Low voltage distribution box (Provide low voltage distribution to the system)
  • Controller (Control system, communication between system and vehicle)
  • Fuel cell stack (Oxygen and hydrogen react to produce power)
