|Title:||Porous Ptfe Separator For High Temperature Water Electrolyzers|
|Abstract:||We have developed and tested a PTFE porous diaphragm for high temperature and high pressure alkaline water electrolyzers. The separator was prepared by a film-pressing technique. A mixture of PTFE and iron oxide is molded and heated above 370°C. The oxide is removed by washing with aqueous HCl. Open cell porous mats are thus obtained having a density of 0.6 g cm-3. These diaphragms resist corrosion by 30% aqueous KOH at 160°C and they perform well in alkaline water electrolyzers regarding electrolyte permeability, gas-tightness and impedance. The voltage drop introduced by the membrane is 0.1-0.2 V at 500 mA cm-2. © 1983.|
