Electrochemical

Our knitted wire mesh has many uses in both existing and new horizon electrochemical industries such as fuel cell production and the latest generation of battery developments. Knitted wire mesh is a strong, flexible and resilient material, created from a web of interlocking wire loops, that offers utility in applications where harsh environmental conditions preclude the use of other materials.

Crimped knitted mesh is a conductive, compressible fabric where its resilience, heat & corrosion resistance and excellent geometric properties, render it an ideal media for the electrical contact and compensation elements used in alkaline electrolysis processes within the Chlor-Alkali, Fuel Cell, Power-to-Gas and the Water Electrolysis industrial sectors.

Such elements, manufactured from a conductive metal that is resistant to electrochemical attack, can be used to optimise the electrical & pressure contact between cells, divider stacker plates and membranes & diaphragms in electrolysis cell stacks & modular cell cartridges. You can contribute to the circular economy, improve your environmental credentials and enhance your corporate social responsibilities by selecting our recyclable and eco-friendly mesh products.

Applications

Chlor-Alkali

Increasingly, the Chlor-Alkali industrial electrolysis process requires zero-gap technology. This utilises an elastic element in the design of the electrolysis membrane cell which assists in minimising volt drop and making the current distribution uniform – our range of crimped nickel meshes are ideal for these applications.

Power to gas

In the same way that other technologies utilise the industrial electrolysis process, Power to Gas systems may also require conductive and corrosion resistant elastic elements in their design – our range of crimped nickel meshes are ideal for these applications.

Fuel Cells

Some electro-chemical energy conversion devices that produce electricity, water and fuel, require an electrolyte resistant compressible element to optimise electrical & pressure contact between fuel cell components – our range of crimped nickel meshes are ideal for these applications.
