MAXIMUM ROTATION RATE: 3000 RPM — Never exceed maximum rotation rate when working with rotating electrodes.
TEMPERATURE RANGE: 10°C - 80°C — Electrode damage may occur at temperatures beyond recommended range.
CHEMICAL INCOMPATIBILITIES: Concentrated Strong Acids — Damage or discoloration may occur.
Polishing PEEK-shrouded electrodes is best accomplished using a mechanical polisher. Other shroud materials are available upon request.
This series of RDE tips may be used with the WaveVortex 10, MSR, and ASR electrode rotators.
PEEK has different wetting properties than PTFE. It is possible that some solvents (inks) may not stay on the surface of the disk electrode during casting. In these cases, users may consider our PTFE option of this same tip, recognizing the temperature limitation for PTFE-based tips!
These RDE tips feature a PEEK shroud which is designed for use over a wide range of temperatures (10°C to 80°C). This tough and chemically resistant shroud material is ideal for applications where the RDE tip undergoes routine thermal cycling. These RDE tips have a 15.0 mm OD shroud and are designed with the same thread connections as our standard 15.0 mm OD RRDE tips, making it easy to switch between RDE and RRDE configurations using the same rotator shaft. The disk electrode can be made from a variety of metals, with the most popular materials being glassy carbon, platinum, and gold, and the shroud is fabricated from chemically-resistant PEEK. Other disk materials can be found here, including various metals, alloys, and steels. Designed for experiments like fuel cell electrocatalyst screening, these RDE tips provide the platform you need to study catalyst behavior over a range of temperatures.
Compatible shafts include AFE6MB, AFE6M, and AFE5M for use with the MSR rotator, AFE6A and AFE5A for use with the ASR rotator, and AFE5F for non-rotating applications. The E5PK Series RDE tips are also compatible with the WaveVortex 10 Electrode Rotator.
