Plate Material Evaluating Cell

This quite handy cell is developed in order to evaluate plate material such as metal, semi-conducting plate, etc. In evaluation, a sample plate is sandwiched between cell blocks.

Applicable plate dimensions:

  • width: from 10 to 23 mm
  • length: approximately 25 mm (depends of the connection way)
  • thickness: until 3 mm

Liquid contact area:

  • approximately 7.8 mm
  • (It is the inner diameter of the O-ring (ID: 7.8 mm). Due to the deformation when squeezed between the blocks, the area will vary slightly.)

Cell Set Up

The assemble will be shown below, where each step will be explained with the photo switches.

  1. Prepare the required parts.
  2. Set the plate on the bottom Teflon block.
  3. Set the Teflon block which contains the o-ring over the plate, and tight the screw left/right uniformly (the surface of the plate in contact with the solution will depends of the inner diameter of the o-ring)
  4. Confirm whether the plate is fixed adequate, and fill with the electrolytic solution (approximately 1 mL).
  5. Set the counter electrode and a reference electrode on the battery cover, then fix it to the cell. The Pt counter electrode, from the kit is a little long, please wind before use.
  6. Do the connection using the alligator clip.
