RDE-2 Cell Stand

The RDE-2 Cell Stand is a rotator system for rotating disk electrode experiments. It is capable of 50-10,000 rpm rotation rates and has an integrated gas purge function that can be controlled manually or remotely. The rotator unit is easily raised and lowered into the solution for electrochemistry experiments.



  • Remote control of stirring and gas purging by BASi® PC-controlled potentiostats
  • Manual control when used with other potentiostats
  • Small sample volume (10 - 15 mL)
  • Optional water-jacketed cell vials
  • Standard addition port
  • "Quick-connect" input gas line connector
  • Mounted cell top compatible with BASi® stationary voltammetry electrodes
  • Easy and rapid exchange of electrodes
  • Low-noise electrode contact
  • Excellent rotation speed, acceleration and deceleration
