Thermal Management Systems

The Fideris® Thermal Management Unit (TM) is a member of the Fuel Cell Test System that has been developed by Fideris Incorporated to address all aspects of fuel cell research, testing, and utilization. The Fideris® Thermal Management Unit is used to control and monitor the temperature of a fuel cell by providing the fuel cell with temperature-controlled recirculating liquid. For added safety, the Fideris Hardwired Emergency Stop system is integrated into the unit.
