Pressure drop through platinized titanium porous electrodes for cerium-based redox flow batteries

Pressure drop through platinized titanium porous electrodes for cerium-based redox flow batteries
The pressure drop, Δp, across a redox flow battery is linked to pumping costs and energy efficiency, making fluid properties of the electrolyte important in scale-up operations. The Δp at diverse platinized titanium electrodes in Ce-based redox flow batteries is reported as a function of mean linear electrolyte velocity measured in a rectangular channel flow cell. Darcy's friction factor and permeability vs. Reynolds number are calculated. Average permeability values are: 7.10 × 10−4 cm2 for Pt/Ti mesh, 4.45 × 10−4 cm2 for Pt/Ti plate + turbulence promoters, 1.67 × 10−5 cm2 for Pt/Ti micromesh, and 1.31 × 10−6 cm2 for Pt/Ti felt. The electrochemical volumetric mass transport coefficient kmAer, Δp, is provided as a function of Δp. In the flow-by configuration, Pt/Ti felt combines high kmAe values with a relatively high math formula, followed by Pt/Ti micromesh. Pt/Ti mesh and Pt/Ti plate gave a lower Δp but poorer electrochemical performance. Implications for cell design are discussed.

Abstract

The pressure drop, Δp, across a redox flow battery is linked to pumping costs and energy efficiency, making fluid properties of the electrolyte important in scale-up operations. The Δp at diverse platinized titanium electrodes in Ce-based redox flow batteries is reported as a function of mean linear electrolyte velocity measured in a rectangular channel flow cell. Darcy's friction factor and permeability vs. Reynolds number are calculated. Average permeability values are: 7.10 × 10−4 cm2 for Pt/Ti mesh, 4.45 × 10−4 cm2 for Pt/Ti plate + turbulence promoters, 1.67 × 10−5 cm2 for Pt/Ti micromesh, and 1.31 × 10−6 cm2 for Pt/Ti felt. The electrochemical volumetric mass transport coefficient kmAer, Δp, is provided as a function of Δp. In the flow-by configuration, Pt/Ti felt combines high kmAe values with a relatively high math formula, followed by Pt/Ti micromesh. Pt/Ti mesh and Pt/Ti plate gave a lower Δp but poorer electrochemical performance. Implications for cell design are discussed.
