Abstract
Methods are described for the preparation of lead chloride cathodes by hot pressing a mixture of lead chloride, lead powder and graphite, typically in the proportions 70:30:3 by weight, on a conductive metal grid. Representative pressing conditions are: 250C, 300kg/square cm, 30 sec. The lead flows under the influence of heat and pressure and bonds the cathode together. These cathodes were assembled into cells, using sheet magnesium alloy as anodes. The performance of single cells and multicell batteries is described, discharged under various conditions, employing synthetic sea-water and LiCl electrolyte. These batteries appear suited to sonobuoy applications.
