Title
(EN) WATER RECAPTURE/RECYCLE SYSTEM IN ELECTROCHEMICAL CELLS
(FR) SYSTÈME DE RE-CAPTURE/RECYCLAGE D'EAU DANS DES CELLULES ÉLECTROCHIMIQUES
Abstract
(EN) A system for managing water content in one or more electrochemical cells, each comprising a plurality of electrodes and a liquid ionically conductive medium, includes a first gas-phase conduit for receiving humid gas-phase associated with the electrochemical cell. The system also includes a desiccator unit communicated to the first air conduit and configured for extracting water from the humid gas-phase. The system additionally includes a heater for selectively heating the desiccant to selectively release extracted water from the desiccator unit. The system further includes a return conduit communicating the desiccator unit to the ionically conductive medium for receiving extracted water from the desiccator unit, and directing the extracted water to the ionically conductive medium. Other associated systems and methods are also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système qui permet de gérer la teneur en eau dans une ou plusieurs cellules électrochimiques, chacune comprenant une pluralité d'électrodes et un milieu de conduction ionique liquide, qui comprend un premier conduit de phase gazeuse pour recevoir une phase gazeuse humide associée à la cellule électrochimique. Le système comprend également une unité de dessiccateur en communication avec le premier conduit d'air et configurée pour extraire l'eau de la phase gazeuse humide. Le système comprend de plus un dispositif de chauffage pour chauffer de façon sélective le dessiccatif pour libérer de façon sélective l'eau extraite de l'unité de dessiccateur. Le système comprend en outre un conduit de retour mettant en communication l'unité de dessiccateur avec le milieu de conduction ionique, pour recevoir l'eau extraite de l'unité de dessiccateur, et dirigeant l'eau extraite dans le milieu de conduction ionique. D'autres systèmes et procédés associés sont également décrits.
