Green Car Congress: “Ceramic pump moves molten metal at a record 1,400 ˚C; new avenues for energy storage and hydrogen production”October 12, 2017 | by Green Car Congress
A ceramic-based mechanical pump able to operate at record temperatures of more than 1,400 ˚C (1,673 K) can transfer high-temperature liquids such as molten tin, enabling a new generation of energy conversion and storage systems. The pump was developed by researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology, with collaborators from Purdue University and Stanford University. The research was supported by the Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) and reported in the journal Nature.
