Abstract

An electrochemical cell 1 has a top 2 and a bottom 3 so constructed a to support a wide range of different-sized electrodes and ancillary glassware for analyzing a wide range of volumes of anylate solutions while negating the necessity for standard taper joints. The drawing shows a cross section of the cell. Bottom 3 is somewhat cup shaped and tapered. The upper outer edge is threaded at 4 to cooperate with corresponding threads on tip 2 and detachably connect the two portions together. Other forms of connections can be made, e.g., snap connections. A circumferential groove 5 is adapted to receive the O-ring seal of a water jacket (not shown).

Electrochemical Cell

An electrochemical cell 1 has a top 2 and a bottom 3 so constructed a to support a wide range of different-sized electrodes and ancillary glassware for analyzing a wide range of volumes of anylate solutions while negating the necessity for standard taper joints. The drawing shows a cross section of the cell. Bottom 3 is somewhat cup shaped and tapered. The upper outer edge is threaded at 4 to cooperate with corresponding threads on tip 2 and detachably connect the two portions together. Other forms of connections can be made, e.g., snap connections. A circumferential groove 5 is adapted to receive the O- ring seal of a water jacket (not shown).

Top 2 has a central hole 7 extending downwardly through an externally threaded nipple 8. The bottom portion 7a is tapered to receive and support a similarly tapered conventional electrode (not shown). An 0-ring 9 fits over the upper end of 8 and is compressible by a cap 10. Upon compression, the inner diameter of ring 9 is constricted, thereby allowing a small electrode to be gripped thereby and supported. Additional nipples 8' are provided with downwardly sloping holes 7' through which an additional electrode 11 can be inserted into the cell to varying depths. Caps 10 and rings 9 can be tightened and loosened to releasably grip electrodes.
