Description

  The present invention relates to a fuel cell and a manufacturing method thereof, and more particularly to a fuel cell in which a resin frame and a separator are joined with an adhesive and a manufacturing method thereof.

  Conventionally, as a general fuel cell, for example, a membrane-electrode assembly having an electrolyte membrane, an anode electrode disposed on one surface of the electrolyte membrane, and a cathode electrode disposed on the other surface ( Some have a structure in which separators are disposed on both sides of an MEA (Membrane Electrode Assembly, hereinafter simply referred to as “MEA”) via a resin frame. In such a fuel cell, the resin frames arranged between the MEAs, and the resin frame and the separator are usually bonded by an adhesive, and air or adhesive is usually attached to the outer peripheral end of the resin frame. Holes and grooves for releasing the agent are formed.

  In the fuel cell having such a configuration, the adhesive may protrude to the outside through holes or grooves for allowing air or adhesive to escape, and there is a possibility that an adhesive burr may be formed at the outer peripheral edge of the resin frame. It was. In order to prevent the adhesive from sticking out, it is conceivable to appropriately control the amount of adhesive used. However, if the amount of adhesive applied is reduced, the adhesive strength decreases, so the adhesive strength is maintained. In fact, it is difficult to apply the adhesive with an optimal application amount that suppresses the protrusion of the adhesive.

  In view of this, for example, a structure in which a weir is formed in the seal portion of the resin frame to prevent the sealing adhesive from protruding is introduced. (For example, refer to Patent Document 1). In addition, an adhesive reservoir groove formed on the seal surface of the separator is also introduced. (For example, refer to Patent Document 2).

To form the stack 33, tighten the stack 33 in the cell stacking direction, and extend the fastening member 34 (for example, a tension plate, screw) extending in the cell stacking direction outside the stack 33. Boruto etc.) and consists of those bolted 35 or nut.

  The MEA 10 is disposed on one surface of the electrolyte membrane 11 made of an ion exchange membrane, the electrolyte membrane 11, an anode electrode (fuel electrode) 14 made up of the catalyst layer 12 and the diffusion layer 13, and the other of the electrolyte membrane 11. The cathode electrode (oxidant electrode) 17 composed of the catalyst layer 15 and the diffusion layer 16 is provided on the surface.

The resin frame 21 is disposed on the anode electrode 14 side of the MEA 10, and the resin frame 22 is disposed on the cathode electrode 17 side of the MEA 10. The resin frames 21 and 22 are hollowed out so that the power generation section of the MEA 10 is exposed to the separators 23 and 24, and manifold sections 40A and 40B are formed on both sides thereof. The manifold section 40A is provided with an inlet side cooling water manifold 41 IN , an outlet side fuel gas manifold 42 OUT , and an inlet side air manifold 43 IN . On the other hand, the manifold section 40B is provided with an outlet side cooling water manifold 41 OUT , an inlet side fuel gas manifold 42 IN , and an outlet side air manifold 43 OUT . Further, the resin frames 21 and 22 are formed with gas flow passage communication portions 47 that communicate the manifold portions 40A and 40B with the gas flow passage portions 53 and 54 formed in the separators 23 and 24, respectively.

  In the resin frames 21 and 22, a region that can be bonded to the separators 23 and 24 (a region indicated by halftone dots in FIG. 4, hereinafter simply referred to as “bondable region”) penetrates in the stacking direction of the single cells 25. A plurality of holes 60 are formed. The plurality of through-holes 60 are scattered in the region where the resin frames 21 and 22 can be bonded, and an adhesive 70 and a resin for bonding the resin frame 21 and the separator 23 when the single cell 25 is formed. An adhesive 70 for adhering the frame 22 and the separator 24 and an adhesive 70 for adhering the resin frame 21 and the resin frame 22 pass therethrough.

A manifold 42 IN and an outlet air manifold 43 OUT are formed.

  The fuel gas channel 53A and the oxidizing gas channel 54A correspond to each other with the MEA 10 interposed therebetween. Further, the cooling water channel 55 formed in the separator 23 and the cooling water channel 56 formed in the separator 24 communicate with each other without being separated in the cell stacking direction.

  The separator 23 and the resin frame 21 constitute a separator-resin frame assembly, and the separator 24 and the resin frame 22 constitute a separator-resin frame assembly.

At this time, the adhesive 70 may be applied to the resin frame 21 side, may be applied to the separator 23 side, or may be applied to both. Next, the resin frame 21 and the separator 23 are bonded together with an adhesive 70 and bonded together to form a separator-resin frame assembly. At this time, the adhesive 70 enters the through hole 60 and penetrates, and the resin frame 21 and the separator 23 are firmly bonded. Similarly, the resin frame 22 and the separator 24 are also joined.

  Next, the separator-resin frame assembly described above is laminated on both surfaces of the MEA 10. At this time, the adhesive 70 penetrating from the through hole 60 is attached to the adhesive region of the surface facing the MEA 10 of the resin frame 21, and the adhesive region of the surface of the resin frame 22 facing the MEA 10 is Since the adhesive 70 penetrating from the through hole 60 is attached, the resin frame 21 and the resin frame 22 are firmly joined by the adhesive 70. In this manner, the resin frames 21 and 22 and the separators 23 and 24 that sandwich the MEA 10 are firmly bonded to each other by the adhesive 70 that penetrates the through hole 60 and is integrated.
