The
FLC

The future of grid storage - flowing electrolytes

Our FLC enables the study of electrochemically or photochemically induced reactions with flowing electrolytes or gases and the characterization of membranes under hermetic conditions.

User friendly design

The innovative design of the FLC guarantees a user-friendly assembly. A simple and standardised stacking process ensures optimal reproducibility and fast screening of materials.

Photo electro-chemistry

Besides classical electrochemistry, the FLC-Light add-on allows you to perform photoelectrochemical tests on transparent samples via a light access window.

Gas induced reactions

Gas reactions and gas/electrolyte interfaces can be studied with our FLC-Gas add-on. A gas supply can simply be attached to the FLC. The gas is then directly injected onto a porous electrode with optimised gas exposure.

Optimal flow and minimal ohmic drop

The FLC is designed for optimal flow conditions to maximize the reactivity of the electrolyte. It also allows for an extremely small distance between the surface area of the electrodes, ensuring a minimal Ohmic drop and maximum efficiency.

With our FLC, the exposed surface area of your electrode has a diameter of 12 mm.

Additional reference electrodes

Each compartment offers the possibility to add a reference electrode. This can be done by either introducing a metal wire (pseudo-reference) or by connecting a standard reference electrode through a Luggin capillary.

specifications

Add-ons / Consumables

Copper electrodes set

Copper electrodes set

Planar, circular FLC current collectors made of Copper (xx mm ør, 99.9%).

FLC-G

The FLC-G add-on replaces one compartment of the standard FLC. This feature allows you to introduce gas into one compartment of the cell. Gas tubing can simply be connected via VICI connectors.

FLC-L

The FLC-L add-on replaces one compartment of the standard FLC. The light window in the FLC-L add-on allows you to perform photo-electrochemistry on transparent samples.

Nitrile o-rings

Nitrile o-rings

Set of standard nitrile o-rings for the FLC (thickness of ZZ mm). These o-rings will minimize the distance between the electrodes to a minimum of GG mm.

PTFE tubes

PTFE tubes

Set of 4 units of 1 m long PTFE tubes to connect the FLC to a peristaltic pump or another combined experiment.

Reference electrode adaptor under development

This adaptor allows for the hermetical connection of standard (12 mm diameter) reference-electrodes to the FLC.

Reinforced silicone o-rigns

Reinforced silicone o-rigns
