ELECTROCHEMICAL REACTORS (ELECTROLYZERS)

ELECTROCHEM TECHNOLOGIES & MATERIALS INC. has built since 2010 a plethora of custom made small scale electrolyzers with a total electrode surface area ranging  from only 10 cm2 up to 400 cm2 mainly for laboratory screening tests and scoping studies in alkaline or acidic electrolytes.
Larger prototype scale electrochemical reactors, with a total electrode surface area ranging from only one square foot (929 cm2) up to ten square feet (0.929 m2) were constructed for testing various electrochemical processes either in-house or for customers from the mining, metallurgical, and electrochemical industries at their plant.

ELECTROCHEM TECHNOLOGIES & MATERIALS INC.COMPLETE ELECTROCHEMICAL UNITS FOR PRE-PILOTING
These complete electrochemical units offer a total electrode surface area ranging  from four square feet (0.371 m2) up to fifty (50) square feet (4.645 m2). These are commonly used for pre-piloting various electrochemical processes either in alkaline or acidic electrolytes. When equipped with electrolytes holding tanks they allow to operate in recirculating mode. Eventually, impellers, pumps, valves, rotameters, strainers, filters, can be also provided. Internal or external heating could be ensured by installing PTFE-coated or quartz immersed heaters or small heat exchangers.

ModelsELECTRO-UNIT RX - ELECTRO-UNIT CX - ELECTRO-UNIT DXELECTRO-UNIT TX

ELECTROCHEM TECHNOLOGIES & MATERIALS INC.PROTOTYPE SCALE ELECTROLYZERS
The prototype electrolyzers offer a total electrode surface area ranging  from one square foot (929 cm2) up to ten square feet (0.929 m2). These are commonly used for testing various electrochemical processes either in alkaline or acidic electrolytes. Eventually, impellers, pumps, valves, rotameters, strainers, filters, can be also provided with immersed heater or small heat exchangers.

ELECTROCHEM TECHNOLOGIES & MATERIALS INC. LABORATORY SCALE ELECTROLYZERS
The small scale electrolyzers offer a total electrode surface area ranging  from only 10 cm2 up to 400 cm2. These are mainly used for laboratory screening tests and scoping studies either in alklaine or acidic electrolytes. Eventually, anolyte and catholyte auxiliary tanks can be also provided with immersed heater but it is usually cheaper for the customer to purchase directly the ancillary equipment himself.

Models: RECTLAB III - RECTLAB IV - RECTLAB V
