Primus Power's proprietary EnergyPod® flow battery employs only one tank of electrolyte solution and one pump (vs. two for others), a patented bromine electrode and zinc electrode and no separator (which typically need to be replaced in 5-10 years) - together these lower footprint, increase lifetime and reduce cost.
