Title
(EN) MEANS OF MAINTAINING COMPRESSION OF THE ACTIVE AREA IN AN ELECTROCHEMICAL CELL
(FR) MOYENS DE MAINTIEN DE COMPRESSION DE LA PARTIE ACTIVE D'UNE CELLULE ELECTROCHIMIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a unique electrochemical cell stack which employs an electrically conductive pressure pad. The pressure pad is composed of material compatible with the electrochemical cell environment and is disposed on the high pressure side of the membrane assembly, in intimate contact with the high pressure side screen pack.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un empilement unique de cellule électrochimique utilisant une plaquette de pression électriquement conductrice. La plaquette de pression est composée de matériau compatible avec l'environnement de la cellule électrochimique, et elle est disposée sur le côté haute pression de l'assemblage de membranes, en très bon contact avec l'ensemble grille.
