United States Patent Application

View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Embodiments of an electrochemical flow cell stack are disclosed. A plurality of frame layers may each have a peripheral gasket channel configured to receive a gasket material. The gasket channel may surround a recessed area having a size and a structure configured to receive an insert layer. Each of the plurality of frame layers may include at least one void area defining a first half-cell chamber of a flow cell. A plurality of insert layers may each be nested within a corresponding frame layers. Each insert layer may include at least one void area defining a second half-cell chamber of the flow cell. A flow cell may be formed by one of the plurality of frame layers and one of the plurality of insert layers.
