  • Patent number: 11069908
    Abstract: A flow plate for a humidifier, and to such a humidifier having a plurality of flow plates and water exchange membranes are described. The flow plate has a flow field with a plurality of free-standing support elements, wherein the support elements extend, at least in sections, perpendicular to the flat surface plane of the flow plate. Gas to be humidified or gas giving off moisture flows on the flow field. In the humidifier, the flow plates are arranged in a stack, wherein a membrane composite having at least one water exchange membrane is arranged between each pair of adjacent flow plates in the stack. The support elements improve the performance of the humidifier and therefore the number of flow plates can be reduced, making a lower-weight and space-saving design possible.

  • Publication number: 20210075050
    Abstract: An electrochemical system having two metallic separator plates, an electrochemical cell arranged between the separator plates and sealed by at least one sealing element, and fixing elements for fixing the separator plates. The fixing elements comprise at least two fixing elements which are designed as integral with the first or with the second separator plate, which differ from the at least one sealing element, are spaced apart from the at least one sealing element parallel to the plate planes of the separator plates, and project at least in sections beyond the plate planes of the separator plates in a stacking direction. The first fixing element is thereby supported on the second fixing element in such a way that the second fixing element prevents a displacement of the first separator plate relative to the second separator plate.

  • Publication number: 20210003220
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a sealing assembly for sealing a space between a first machine element and a second machine element that is movable in relation to the first machine element. The first and second machine elements are arranged concentrically to each other. According to the invention, the sealing assembly is characterized in that it further comprises a conductive element that is used to establish an electrically conductive connection between the first and the second machine elements extending from the first machine element to the second machine element, and is mechanically connected at least in sections to the side of the seal facing away from the space to be sealed. The conductive element consists of an electrically conductive fiber fabric embedded in an elastomer matrix.
