Products

To view pricing, you must create an account and login using the "ACCOUNT" menu above.

MAXIMUM ROTATION RATE: 2000 RPM -- Never exceed maximum rotation rate when working with rotating electrodes.

This series of RDE tips may be used with the WaveVortex 10, MSR, and ASR electrode rotators.

The E5TQPK Series ChangeDisk RDE design offers a unique interchangeable disk option that permits the same RDE tip with a PEEK shroud to be used repeatedly with different disk inserts.  The PEEK shroud is designed for use over a wide range of temperatures (10°C to 80°C) and is ideal for applications where the RDE tip undergoes routine thermal cycling.

  • Disk OD = 5.0 mm
  • ChangeDisk RDE Tip; 15.0 mm PEEK shroud
  • Accepts disk inserts 5.0 mm OD x 4.0 mm thick (sold separately)

AKUCUP

PTFE U-Cup Replacement Kit
pack of three (3) standard U-Cups for use with 5.0-mm OD inserts

MAXIMUM ROTATION RATE: 2000 RPM — Never exceed maximum rotation rate when working with rotating electrodes.

The PTFE U-Cup is a consumable product for the ChangeDisk RDE and RRDE tips.  To ensure proper operation and longevity of the tip, Pine Research recommends replacing the U-Cup every 3-4 times you perform a ChangeDisk operation.  Permanent, irreversible damage to the tip will result if the U-Cup is not regularly changed.

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.

These RDE tips feature a 15.0 mm OD PEEK 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.  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.

E5TQPK Series RDE tips feature removable disk inserts (sold separately).  Standard metal disk inserts offered by Pine Research are 5.0 mm OD x 4.0 mm thick and are fabricated from gold, platinum, or glassy carbon; however, disks may be made from other materials or dimensions upon request.  A toolkit (sold separately) and polishing kit (sold separately) are also required to change and polish the metal disk insert between experiments.

Compatible shafts include AFE6MBAFE6M, and AFE5M for use with the MSR rotatorAFE6A and AFE5A for use with the ASR rotator, and AFE5F for non-rotating applications.  The E5TQPK Series RDE tips are also compatible with the WaveVortex 10 Electrode Rotator.
