Powder Containment for the Battery Industry

Solving powder handling challenges in battery production. 

The global battery market is increasing rapidly as the shifting trend towards electric vehicles and demand for renewable energy grows. 

However, the battery manufacturing process is also becoming increasingly complex as safety measures become more stringent and the demand for better-performing batteries produced at lower cost rises. 

Key Challenges for Battery Manufacturers 

Battery manufacturers face numerous risks and challenges, in relation to product quality and operator safety, during production process.

Occupational Safety 

The components utilised in battery production are often in raw, carcinogenic, and flammable powder form. Therefore, manufacturers must factor-in a stringent and compliant containment strategy for hazard potential OEB 4 (1-10µg/m³) or OEB 5 (<1µ/m³).

Product and Process Integrity  

To maintain the quality and performance of the battery, manufacturers often use controlled environments with low humidity levels or inert gases like N2 or Ar to prevent exposure to moisture and oxygen during this stage.
