The gas cell
Gas cells in the size and shape of hearing-
This is how it works
The gas cells are available in 3 different sizes with different gas volumes. Special models for larger gas volumes are available upon request. The gas production capacity and maximum gas output per hour can be increased by adding any number of standard cells connected in series.
Electrical load resistance
Theoretical hydrogen development at 1 Ah corresponds to 448 ml at 20 °C. The examples in the table provide guidelines for gas production of a single cell:
Gas cell applications
The gas produced is used to displace a piston or membrane. Typical applications are intravenuous administration of medical substances over prolonged periods of time or automatic lubricant dispensers in the industry.
The hydrogen produced is extremely pure and can therefore be used for measuring tasks, sensor technology or analytical purposes in the laboratory. Oxygen gas cells can be supplied on request. However, this requires an additional power supply.
H 2 reference electrode (see left) for pH measurement, particularly suitable for use in extremely acidic and alkaline solutions. Modern measuring tongues with ion exchanger membranes expand the range of possible applications in science and technology, e.g. for charge state monitoring in lead accumulator batteries. The cartridge supplies hydrogen to the electrode for 6 months and more.
Gas cells can be stored for 2 years without any noticeable loss of energy. The protective seal prevents the cell from drying out and is not removed. It lifts off on its own during operation. Disposal of cells is done via battery recycling.
Hydrogen is the lightest of all gases and is harmless when it occurs alone. Oxyhydrogen gas is only possible in the correct air/hydrogen ratio and the necessary ignition temperature is more than 500 °C. Normal city gas contains approx. 55 % vol.; lighting a gas stove releases far more hydrogen than one of our gas cells ever could.
