Fuel Cell Glass Bottles

We present our line of Microbial Fuel Cell Glass Bottles. These cell bottles configurations are the distillation of many dozens of designs that have been produced for research and we believe our cells cover a lot of the basic needs for this area of investigation. They are inexpensive, straightforward, flexible, as well as modifiable. You can see many.

Microbial fuel cells are essentially modified H-cells, to be used with various membranes sandwiched between the flanges. Our cells utilize NW glass flanges tooled to mimic the stainless steel KF series of flanges and have corresponding seals and wraparound knuckle clamps. These flanges are called-out by their I.D. and the most common sizes are 25mm, 40mm, and 50 mm. The ports are glass threads that use sealing rings to hold electrodes, hose barbs for liquid flow, or Teflon-faced septa for needle sampling.

These cells are constructed on standard borosilicate media bottles and fitted with robust GL14 threaded glass side ports. Typically, we stock these as blanks in 100ml and 250ml volumes with three different options for porting: hose barbs, Teflon-faced silicone septa for piercing for sampling and sealing rings to hold electrodes.

The standard side ports are GL14 threads, and the large bottle opening is a GL45 thread, all of which can be sealed with either closed caps, or open caps with Teflon-faced silicone septa. We also have sealing rings to hold and seal electrodes or tubulation (up to 1/4″ diameter in the GL14, among other options. Check out a page of these options.

A microbial fuel cell is a bio-electrochemical device that can convert chemical energy into electrical energy.
