Abstract:

The prupose of this program is to develop the manufacturing technology of the Carb Tek molten salt LiCl battery to the prototype level. This purpose is being accomplished by actually constructing cells on a pilot line, optimizing process steps, establishing quality control procedures, and engineering appropriate changes. The majority of the cell work is performed in a controlled argon atmosphere. Results show that the carbon selected for the cell cathode can develop the required 5 Whrcubic inch even when damaged by stress cracks. Anode contamination and fabrication problems have been reduced by a new alloying technique. Cell yields are dependent on weld quality.
