Electrical Resistance Evolution During a Small Scale Two-phase Electrolysis Conference Paper uri icon


  • During two-phase electrolysis for hydrogen, aluminium or fluor production, there are bubbles which are created at electrodes which imply a great hydrodynamic acceleration in the normal earthgravity field and then a quite important electrical properties and electrochemical processes disturbance. This disturbance can lead to the modification of the local current density and to anode effects for example. There is few works concerning the local modelling of electrochemical processes during a two-phase electrolysis process. There are also few local experimental measurements in term of chemical composition, temperature or current density which will allow the numerical calculations validation. Nevertheless, effects like the anode effect, particularly expensive on the point of the process efficiency, should need a better understanding.
