Abstract
(EN)
Anode and cathode separator plates (28, 26) are suitable for use in ion pumps (16) for converting an input stream such as reformate into a pressurized and purified hydrogen-rich gas stream. The plates may include a single cathode outlet opening (330) forming a portion of cathode output gas manifold, an anode inlet opening (210) forming a portion of an inlet gas stream manifold and being sized larger than inlet cathode outlet opening, the distance of the anode inlet opening to an edge of the plate being less than the distance of the cathode outlet opening from an edge of the plate, and the size of the fluid flow channel (134) of the anode separator plate being smaller than the size of the fluid flow channel (136) of the cathode separator plate. Methods for forming the plates and infrastructure systems (10) are also disclosed.
(FR)
Selon l'invention, des plaques séparatrices d'anode et de cathode (28, 26) sont appropriées à une utilisation dans des pompes ioniques (16) de manière à convertir un flux entrant, tel qu'un reformat, en un flux gazeux riche en hydrogène purifié et sous pression. Ces plaques peuvent comprendre une seule ouverture de sortie de cathode (330) formant une partie du collecteur de gaz de sortie de cathode, une ouverture d'entrée d'anode (210) qui forme une partie d'un collecteur de flux de gaz d'entrée et qui est plus grand que l'ouverture de sortie de la cathode d'entrée. La distance entre l'ouverture d'entrée de l'anode jusqu'à un bord de la plaque est inférieure à celle de l'ouverture de sortie de la cathode à partir d'un bord de la plaque, et la dimension de la voie d'écoulement de liquide (134) de la plaque séparatrice de l'anode est plus petite que celle de la voie d'écoulement de liquide (136) de la plaque séparatrice de la cathode. Cette invention a aussi pour objet des procédés de formation des plaques et des systèmes d'infrastructures (10).
