Gas-Purged Bearing Assembly
This gas-purged bearing assembly is designed to fit snugly into the 24/25 center port found on most Pine Research electrochemical cells. The bearing has a 15.0 mm ID hole through which a 15.0 mm OD shaft can be inserted down into the cell.
The bearing assembly also has a small port on the side so that the internal space within the bearing can be purged using a positive pressure of inert gas flowing into the port. The tapered outer body of the bearing assembly is fabricated from chemically-resistant PEEK. The bearing itself is ceramic and is also resistant to chemical attack.
