Abstract : An improved electrochemical cell having circular anodes, cathodes, and electrolyte reservoirs; semicircular separators and gas flow spaces, is constructed such that approximately one-half of each of the two major faces of each cathode is adjacent to separator material, and the other half of each major face is adjacent to a gas flow space such that the area on each cathode major face adjacent to separator material is opposite (through the cathode) the area of the other major face which is adjacent to a gas flow space. Approximately one-half of each of the two major faces of each anode is also positioned adjacent to separator material and the other half of each major anode face is adjacent to a gas flow space. In the fabricated stack each separator has an adjacent anode face and an adjacent cathode face opposite each other across the separator. Electrolyte reservoirs are positioned adjacent anodes at the top and bottom ends of the stack. (Author)
