The 12852A flat panel cell for coated plates consists of a cylindrical cell body with a O-ring grooved bottom edge for direct clamping to a flat sample having a 3-in or a 4-in width dimension and any length of 3-in or more. The counter electrode is parallel to the surface of the sample to provide optimum current distribution for EIS measurements. The reference electrode is mounted so as to fit through an opening in the counter electrode.
The cell body rests on the sample and is pressure clamped to the sample between the top and bottom plates with four threaded stainless rods. The four-rod clamping approach improves the alignment of the cell body and sample over other designs. The cell will accommodate samples having a 3-in width and a thickness of 1/16-in or less to 3/8-in. The top and bottom cell clamping plates are fabricated from acrylic for corrosion resistance. All cell hardware is stainless steel. A neoprene sealing O-ring is supplied with each cell.
The cell is furnished with a top bar having holes for the mounting of the counter electrode and support of the reference electrode. The cell top is otherwise open and accessible. The counter electrode is Pt on Nb expanded mesh. The CE height over the sample is 2-in. The exposed area of the sample is 32 cm2 and the cell electrolyte capacity is about 250 mL. The cell container body is acrylic , which has excellent chemical resistance and good optical clarity for observation of the contents of the cell.
