The technique of strip casting allows an automated way of implementing a liquid slurry on a support film. After drying, the product obtained presents great precision and a great homogeneity of thickness, allowing its use in the realization of stacks of fuel cells of the SOFC type.
Within the framework of this application, intended for the CEA of GRENOBLE, the DEFI SYSTEMES teams carried out the studies, the realization, the adjustment in factory, as well as the start-up of the equipment on customer site.
Taking into account the solvents involved in the slip, particular attention was paid to the ATEX stakes (risk analysis, zoning and choice of ATEX components, installation of a ventilation device, ...).
Thanks to its experience in the study and the realization of casting benches, DEFI SYSTEMES proposes today small series of equipment dedicated to the research and the production.
