Circulation of electrolyte in an electrochemical cell, using Taylor vortices

Abstract

In an electrochemical cell for decomposition of organic waste liquids having an anode compartment and a cathode compartment separated by a porous pot, the anode is driven by a shaft having an axial passage extending from an upper inlet in the vicinity of the liquid level to a lower outlet adjacent a turbine. The rotating anode produces Taylor vortices in annular space and liquid is drawn from layer through passage and emerges to contact the anode. In one use, organic solvent such as tributyl phosphate/odourless kerosene is destroyed. Fresh solvent is added through an inlet. A helical cooler may also be provided. (author).
