Title (EN) SOLAR CELL PROCESS CARRIER
(FR) SUPPORT DE TRAITEMENT DE CELLULES SOLAIRES
Abstract:
(EN) A process carrier for solar cells includes a plurality of supports configured as toothed rails extending between a pair of endwalls. Each cell support includes a plurality of teeth arranged in a row extending outwardly therefrom defining a solar cell receiving region with plurality of slots for containing cells. Toothed rails are connected to endwalls with connections having significant strength, high dimensional accuracy and that minimize potential leaks. Rigid structural support members of the rails, such as metal shafts, can be isolated from process fluids and can be totally encapsulated by chemical resistant polymers such as fluoropolymers by overmolding or other isolation means. End caps configured as fittings attach to receiving openings on the endwalls and an uppermost toothed rail can be inserted and removed and rotated to secure batches of cells in place for processing.
(FR) L'invention concerne un support de traitement pour cellules solaires qui comprend une pluralité de soutiens configurés sous la forme de rails dentés s'étendant entre une paire de parois d'extrémité. Chaque soutien de cellules comprend une pluralité de dents disposées dans une rangée s'étendant vers l'extérieur à partir de celui-ci, définissant une région de réception de cellules solaires avec une pluralité de fentes destinées à contenir des cellules. Les rails dentés sont reliés aux parois d'extrémité avec des liaisons ayant une force significative, une précision dimensionnelle élevée et qui rendant minimales des fuites potentielles. Des éléments de soutien structurels rigides des rails, tels que des arbres métalliques, peuvent être isolés des fluides de traitement et peuvent être totalement encapsulés par des polymères résistant aux produits chimiques, tels que des fluoro-polymères, par surmoulage ou d'autres moyens d'isolation. Des capuchons configurés sous la forme de raccords s'attachent à des ouvertures de réception sur les parois d'extrémité et un rail denté supérieur peuvent être insérés et retirés et tournés pour bloquer en position les lots de cellules pour le traitement.
