Abstract:

The performance of the MgMgClO42m-DNB system is evaluated for various temperatures, hourly rates, and shelf-life periods. Extensive data is given for three cell sizes RN, A and D. Techniques for fabrication of the above cells, which are adaptable for high-speed assembly, are mentioned. Finally, a comparison of the MgMgClO42m-DNB system with the MgMgClO42 MnO2 is given with respect to energy densities and performance curves. Improvements in cathode efficiency, corrosion inhibition, and a mechanical seal will have to be initiated in the Mgm-DNB system before it will be able to compete with the present MgMnO2 system.
