Strengthened Anode

MCP has begun manufacturing trials and pressurized bench scale cell tests of a strengthened anode. A recent cell test demonstrated a stable performance of -755 mV for over 2000 hours at 3 atmospheres on systems gases. This cell was terminated after a load device failure. Analysis of the post-test carbonate distribution and package characteristics is in progress. Ongoing work at M-C Power includes optimizing the physical properties (creep resistance and strength characteristics) of these anodes by characterizing the effect manufacturing procedures have on the in situ strength
