SPE® Electrolysis for Current and Future Space Applications 961524

Recent advances in SPE® electrochemical systems have addressed risk areas identified early in the space station program and now support applications that can provide significant potential benefit to ISS in the areas of life support, propulsion and energy storage. Advanced high-pressure systems now under development for navy and aircraft applications can generate oxygen at pressures up to 2000 psi (13.8 MPa) with no moving parts on the oxygen side of the generating system. Zero gravity static phase separators have been developed and are being tested in component and system tests. Cyclic operation of complete systems has been demonstrated.
