R&D Dynamics provides oil-free compressors for DOE project

Published on: 

The compressors will be used in a long-haul trucking project led by the DOE.

R&D Dynamics Corporation received an award from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop air management system compressors for heavy-duty truck applications as part of the Million Mile Fuel Cell Truck (M2FCT) program. The goal of the M2FCT program is to achieve 1 million miles of reliable fuel cell operation for long-haul transportation truck application. The air management compressor is the major cost contributor and parasitic power draw on the fuel cell stacks. The key challenges for heavy-duty vehicle applications are the need for greater uptime, reduced input power and extended durability.
