Battery, vanadium redox, metal/plastic/graphite felt, Professor Maria Skyllas-Kazacos / Dr Rui Hong, University of NSW, Sydney, 1994
The battery is made up of 30 cells, each consisting of an electrode (graphite felt heat-bonded to conducting plastic made from polyethylene, EPR rubber and carbon black), a flow frame (which carries two vanadium solutions in different states of charge), a membrane (Selemion AMV made by Asahi Glass Co in Japan), then another flow frame and another electrode. The cells are bolted together between metal frames. Taps at the lower edges of the frames were connected to pumps when in use. Pumps and electrolyte tanks are not included in the acquisition.
