ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 14 -- LG Fuel Cell Systems, North Canton, Ohio, has been assigned a patent (No. 10,230,127, initially filed July 16, 2015) developed by Eric Dean, Mickleover, United Kingdom, for "components and methods for manufacture and assembly of a fuel cell stack."
The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=1,02,30,127.PN.&OS=PN/1,02,30,127&RS=PN/1,02,30,127
The abstract states: "A fuel cell stack which is amenable to simple manufacturing processes and is thermally and mechanically compliant. The fuel cell stack reduces the number of components by combing fuel cell tubes to form tube sub-assemblies, the tube sub-assemblies comprising end fittings connected to the fuel cell tubes, the end fittings provided with at least one or preferably a plurality of channels to provide equal distribution of fuel throughout the fuel cell tubes."
