    Floating Slimes Essay

    • 1864 Words
    • 8 Pages

    Silver, lead, arsenic, bismuth, antimony, selenium, and nickel are common impurities existing in copper anodes. Some impurities dissolved from the anodes can precipitate, if their concentrations in the electrolytic solution are above saturation levels. Some of these precipitates can settle down but some are floating slimes and can be a source of cathode contamination by their incorporation into the cathode 16. These floating slimes are amorphous and typically have compositions of Sb-As-O and Bi-As-O, precipitated in the electrolyte, rather than on the surface of anodes 17. Like the small anode slime particles that are liberated from the anode slimes layer, these floating slimes are generally small and, therefore, are suspended in the solution. They can be transported to the cathode by the fluid flow in an electrorefining cell and get entrapped on the cathode. Some studies on its formation and deposition mechanism and associated prevention have been carried out. Antimony is widely considered as a major source of floating slimes. F. Noguchi, H. Itoh and T. Nakamura studied the dissolution mechanism of antimony from the anode and its effect on floating slimes. They intentionally added antimony…

    Chapter-III OPERATING PRINIPLE AND LOSSES IN PEM FUEL CELL The polymer membrane is the heart of the PEM fuel cell which has some unique features. It allows protons but it is impermeable to gases, and hence it is known as a Proton Exchange Membrane. The membrane, which is squeezed between two electrodes (electrically conductive carbon cloths or carbon fiber papers) acts as electrolyte. A layer of catalyst particles (platinum) is placed at the interface between the porous electrode and polymer…

    To let an OLED light up we basically connect a voltage across the anode and cathode. When electricity begin to flow, the cathode receive electrons from the power source and the anode drops them so the extra electrons make the emissive layer negatively charged whereas the conductive layer turn out to be positively charged, after that the positive holes will grow to be much more movable than the negative electrons thus they bound across the boundary from conductive layer to emissive layer. When a…

    According to Sprawls (2013: Online) the x-beam tube anode is distinctive in mammo’s though most x-beam tubes utilize tungsten as the anode material, mammography gear utilizes molybdenum anodes or in a few plans, a double material anode with an extra rhodium track. These materials are utilized in light of the fact that they deliver a trademark radiation range that is near ideal for breast imaging, this complies with the ALARA principle even though the energy of the x-ray beam is low, the manner…

    1.2 Principle of ECM Electrochemical machining removes material from the work piece by electrochemical process. The working principle is anodic dissolution in which the work piece as anode and the tool as cathode. Both electrodes are immersed in the electrolyte and electrical applied to these electrodes. The electric conduction is achieved through the movements of ions between the anode and cathode through the electrolyte. The current is passing through the system of arrangements will cause the…

    factors stay constant, the quantity of corrosion is cut in 0.5. 3) Contact Resistance The contact resistance of the anode to electrolyte and of the cathode to electrolyte is a component of the overall corrosion cell resistivity—the lower the contact resistance, the greater the corrosion current. As the contact resistance increases, the corrosion cell current will decrease. The decrease will be in relation to the sum of the total resistance of the circuit. That is, the resistance of the…

    This type of Corrosion occurs when the two non-similar metals are dipped partially or are immersed in solution or when the metal comes in contact with a liquid which is conducting. A Galvanic cell forms on the surface of metal and Therefore, some part of metal surface acts as anode and other as cathode. The chemical in the environment and humidity acts as an electrolyte. So the Oxidation of anodic part takes place and therefore corrosion product is formed on the surface of the metal…

    usually the anode is where the negative electrode end (anode) oxidation takes place when the battery is in use. The positive electrode end of an electrical component is known as the cathode, where the positive end (cathode) reduction takes place simultaneously with the oxidation process. Lastly the electrolyte is the part which ionically conducts and insulates the electric current. We can examine each of these battery components and understand what their process is during the oxidation-reduction…
