Safely handling potentially harmful Li-ion battery chemical powders, binders, active materials and conductive carbon additives requires contained, secure and efficient powder handling equipment that guarantees operator safety.
Due to the hazardous properties of the powders used in battery manufacturing and recycling, and the particle sizes and properties of the materials means that they are poor flowing, toxic and consequently problematic to handle.
Powder temperature maintenance to avoid changes during process flow resulting in potentially explosive powders.
Moisture sensitive powders need to be treated carefully to avoid waste and equipment degradation.
Bulk transfer of material between sites demand robust, contained units when being transported.
