  • Patent number: 11186915
    Abstract: The invention relates to an electrolysis system to conduct oxidation and reduction reactions, comprising one or more electrolytic cells, with each one of them being formed by at least a pair of electrodes and an electrolyte provided between said electrodes, wherein the assembly of said one or more electrolytic cells defines an electrolyzer; and an energy source that supplies an electrical signal to the electrolyzer; wherein said electrolytic cell is built in the form of a capacitor of cylindrical plates, wherein said cylindrical plates are defined by the electrodes of the electrolytic cell formed by tubes arranged in a substantially concentric way within each other, thus defining a central electrode, an outer electrode and a space between electrodes, wherein the central electrode corresponds to the anode of the capacitor, the outer electrode to the cathode of the capacitor and the electrolyte to the dielectric means of the capacitor; wherein the electrical signal received by the electrolytic cell or cells tha

  • Publication number: 20150218722
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system and method for monitoring, in real time, the electric current that passes through each one of a plurality of single cathodes or anodes forming an electrolytic cell. The system comprises a plurality of sensor means including Hall Effect sensors. The sensor means are arranged for current measurement and thermal drift correction. Such sensors are located in a sensor bar which includes a protecting shield which provides magnetic shielding and also prevents corrosion. The present invention enables a more accurate measurement of the current of each electric unit within the electrolytic cell (cathode or anode) by using a ferromagnetic barrier acting as a magnetic shield in order to reduce the effects of magnetic fields adjacent to the target one and by correcting the measurement based on heat factors that may alter the measurement.

  • Publication number: 20150211136
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an electric current management (ECM) system and method comprising at least one electrolytic cell having at least two electrodes in contact with electrolyte media; a plurality of sensor means for measuring the current passing through one or more electrodes, said sensor means being located inside at least one ECM bar installed in one or more operating electrolytic cells; a support means for supporting at least one ECM bar in each cell; wherein the support means is adapted to avoid disruption to normal electrode movements and damage to the ECM bar. The present invention introduces improvements for minimizing the effects that several types of variables have on current measurement, such as magnetic field interference, cell geometry and contact configuration, in order to provide a reliable approximation of the current passing through each electrode.
