  • Applications and Software +


    Applications and Software
    A RDE system uses a single potentiostat to polarize a Disk electrode. Rotation of this disk electrode encourages mass-transport of ions in solution to the electrode surface. This increased flux benefits physical electrochemistry applications, such electroplating and fundamental research.

    A RCE system uses a larger area electrode that is a different form. This is common configuration for studying velocity-sensitive electrochemical corrosion such as in an oil and gas pipeline.

    For our RRDE system, please refer to our 636A Rotating Ring Disk Electrode rotator.
