Title (EN) COMPRESSION MEMBER FOR PROTON EXCHANGE MEMBRANE ELECTROCHEMICAL CELL SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE CELLULE ELECTROCHIMIQUE A MEMBRANE D'ECHANGE DE PROTONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A compression member (356) for an electrochemical cell stack is provided. The compression member (356) includes a first surface (360) including a plurality of raised portions, a second surface including a substantially flat surface (362), and an edge defined by the first surface and the second surface. The plurality of raised portions (364) is aligned to define a plurality of receiving areas (366). The plurality of raised portions and the plurality of received areas are configured such application of an axial compressive force spreads the plurality of raised portions into the plurality of receiving areas. The edge includes a portion (358) configured to receive an electrochemical cell terminal (316) therethrough. The compression member is formed of electrically non-conductive materials.
(FR)L'invention concerne un élément de compression pour un empilement de cellule électrochimique. L'élément de compression comprend une première surface comportant de nombreuses portions protubérantes, une seconde surface sensiblement plate, et une bordure définie par les première et seconde surfaces. Les nombreuses portions protubérantes sont alignées afin de définir de nombreuses zones de réception. Ces nombreuses portions protubérantes et zones de réception sont conçues de telle façon que l'application d'une force axiale de compression permet de répartir les portions protubérantes dans les zones de réception. La bordure comprend une portion configurée de façon à recevoir, par son travers, une borne de cellule électrochimique. L'élément de compression est formé de matériaux électriquement isolants.
