Title: Battery cell for a primary battery

Abstract

A battery cell for a primary battery, particularly a flat cell battery to be activated on being taken into use, e.g., when submerged into water. The battery cell comprises a positive current collector and a negative electrode. A separator layer which, being in contact with the negative electrode, is disposed between said negative electrode and the positive current collector. A depolarizing layer containing a depolarizing agent is disposed between the positive current collector and the separate layer. An intermediate layer of a porous, electrically insulating, and water-absorbing material is disposed next to the positive current collector and arranged in contact with the depolarizing agent.

  • An electrochemical cell or battery in a monolithic form is produced, in which a series of planar sheet electrodes are disposed in a framework of a fibrous material which contains a thermosetting resin. The process for forming the cell or battery is also disclosed.
  • A cathode is provided for use in high energy primary lithium-thionyl chloride cell systems or calcium-thionyl chloride cell systems. The cathode comprises an expanded metallic current collector screen into which has been pasted a mixture of a low-surface-area conductive carbon black and a high-surface-area conductive carbon black previously mixed with a binder.
  • The invention relates to a method for the manufacture of an electrochemical cell or battery, consisting of a stack of plateshaped elements, each of which consists of a sheet or plate of electrode material which is mounted in a frame made of electrically insulating fibrous-web material impregnated with a non-polymerized thermosetting synthetic material, which elements in a first compression molding stage are heated under pressure for a relatively short primary time at a relatively low primary temperature under which conditions the thermosetting synthetic material flows well but polymerizes only to a minor degree, thereafter the elements are combined with othermore » battery components and stacked into an electrochemical cell package which in a second compression molding stage is formed into a coherent block by compression for a relatively long secondary time and at a relatively high secondary temperature to set the thermosetting synthetic material.« less
  • This patent describes a hybrid power source system for supplying electrical current to a load and for controlling the amount of current supplied in response to current demand from the load. It comprises: a primary electrical energy source couplable to the load through a first switch means interposed therebetween and having a predetermined maximum desired power output; first energy storage means couplable to the load in parallel with the primary electrical power source through a second switch means interposed between the first energy storage means and the load; second energy storage means couplable to the load in parallel with bothmore » the primary electrical power source and the first energy storage means through a third switch means interposed between the second energy storage means and the load, either the primary electrical energy source, the first and second energy storage means or combinations thereof being connected in parallel to supply current to the load depending upon whether the first, the second or the third switch means or combinations thereof are appropriately energized; load current sensing means for sensing the current flowing into the load; charge sensor means; and control means.« less
