||PCT/US2014/059231||PHILLIPS 66 COMPANY||LIU, Ying|
The present embodiment describes a method of forming different layers in a solid oxide fuel cell
. The method begins by preparing slurries which are then delivered to a spray nozzle. The slurries are then atomized and sprayed subsequently onto a support to produce a layer which is then dried. In this embodiment different layers can comprise an anode, an electrode and a cathode. Also the support can be a metal or a metal oxide which is later removed.

||PCT/US2014/059320||PHILLIPS 66 COMPANY||LIU, Ying|
A method of forming layers of a solid oxide fuel cell
. The method begins by pumping a volume of a slip form a slip reservoir to a separator reservoir. A separator and a blade are provided upon a carrier to form the separator reservoir with a gap formed between the blade and the carrier. The carrier is operated so that the carrier is transported from the separator to the blade. A layer of slip is then deposited from the separator reservoir onto the carrier. The layer of slip is then dried on the carrier.
