The world is changing. The power that we use daily is coming from batteries more than ever before. Storing power from greener sources and using it on demand is becoming the new normal. This shift to lithium-ion battery power is the most impactful in Electric Vehicles (EVs). Manufacturing a lithium-ion battery for an EV includes a variety of special pump applications.
The SANDPIPER air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump family is perfectly equipped to handle all of these unique lithium battery applications and more. Within the battery-making process are aggressive and hazardous chemicals, abrasive slurries, and high-viscosity mixtures. For each step in the life of a lithium-ion battery, we have the right pump for the job.
The most common application for a SANDPIPER AODD pump in the battery life cycle is the production of the battery cells. Many AODD pumps are used to transfer the various chemicals and active material slurries through blending and filtering. The final step is to move the cathode and anode to the coater to produce the battery cell. SANDPIPER pumps are ideal for this process.
