  • Publication number: 20200212483
    Abstract: A method of decontaminating a lithium conducting ceramic oxide material. The method includes soaking the lithium conducting ceramic oxide material having a first thickness of surface contaminants in a first organic solvent containing an inorganic salt at an inorganic salt concentration to obtain a soaked lithium conducting ceramic oxide material. The method further includes rinsing the soaked lithium conducting ceramic oxide material in a second organic solvent to obtain a decontaminated lithium conducting ceramic oxide material having a second thickness of surface contaminants less than the first thickness of surface contaminants.

  • Publication number: 20200197953
    Abstract: A method of forming a collection electrode for an electrostatic charging air cleaning device. The method includes forming a slurry including a carbon black powder material, a polymeric binder material and a liquid solvent material. The method further includes applying the slurry to a substrate material. The method also includes curing the slurry to obtain a coating layer on the substrate material to form the collection electrode.

  • Publication number: 20200200408
    Abstract: An electrostatic charging air cleaning device having first and second pre-chargers. The first pre-charger is configured to generate a first corona discharge to electrostatically charge PM in the incoming air stream with a first charge to form a first exiting air stream exiting the first pre-charger. The second pre-charger is configured to generate a second corona discharge to electrostatically charge PM in the incoming air stream with a second charge to form a second exiting air stream exiting the second pre-charger. The device also includes a separator having apertures such that PM in the second exiting air stream passes through the separator to agglomerate with PM in the first exiting air stream to form agglomerated particles. The apertures are sized such that the agglomerated particles are larger than the apertures to preclude the agglomerated particles from reentering the second exiting air stream.

  • Publication number: 20200148560
    Abstract: A device for removing ions from a flow of water includes a first electrode and a counter-electrode opposite the first electrode in the flow of water. The first electrode contains at least one material which is capable of intercalating one or both of Mg2+ and Ca2+ ions in the flow of water. The counter-electrode can include a material capable of binding to anions in the flow of water.

  • Publication number: 20150064525
    Abstract: A sensor apparatus for a battery cell of an electrical energy reservoir is proposed. The battery cell has a housing inside which an anode electrode electrically connected to a first battery terminal, a cathode electrode electrically connected to a second battery terminal, and an electrolyte for ion conduction between the anode electrode and the cathode electrode are receivable or received. The sensor apparatus comprises a reference electrode that is locatable or located inside the housing of the battery cell in ionic contact with the electrolyte. The sensor apparatus also comprises a sensing device for sensing sensor data. The sensing device is locatable or located inside the housing.

  • Publication number: 20140170457
    Abstract: A secondary cell, in particular a lithium-sulfur cell, that encompasses a cathode having an electrochemically active cathode active material, an anode having an electrochemically active anode active material, and a liquid electrolyte, the cathode active material and/or anode active material changing, in the context of the charging or discharging operation, from a solid phase form into a liquid phase form that is soluble in the electrolyte. To increase the charging/discharging rate and cycle stability and to decrease overvoltages, the secondary cell encompasses at least one redox additive that is soluble in reduced form and oxidized form in the electrolyte and that is suitable for reacting with the phase-changing electrode active material in a redox reaction in such a way that the electrode active material is convertible from the solid phase form into the liquid phase form.
