In the purpose of in situ control of hydrodynamic influence on electrochemical processes, a cell jet device has been conceived and characterized. This cell was sensitive to parameters that are the jet tube diameter, and its height versus the working electrode. So, the three hydrodynamic flow modes have been established from the non dimensional Reynolds number. From the use of this cell for the study of co deposition from the Ni/SiC system with a WATT bath, it was shown that the turbulent flow to favor more embedment of SiC particles in the nickel matrix. It also noted an influence of the flow mode and SiC particles on the working current.
