LITHIUM BATTERY

TRUSTED PUMPING SOLUTIONS FOR LITHIUM ION BATTERY PRODUCTION

The world is changing. The power that we use on a daily basis 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 (EV). Manufacturing a lithium ion battery for an EV includes a variety of special pump applications.

The SANDPIPER AODD product family is perfectly equipped to handle all of these unique applications and more. Within the battery making process there are aggressive and hazardous chemicals, abrasive slurries and high viscosity mixtures. There are also purity considerations with the battery material where contaminants must be avoided.

 

Special Pump Construction for Lithium Battery Processing

We recognize that keeping the cathode and anode slurry contaminant free is critical to producing quality battery systems. To help ensure the integrity of the battery, we can produce our metal and plastic AODD pumps with compliant materials that do not contain contaminating materials like copper, iron and zinc.

COMMON APPLICATIONS FOR SANDPIPER AODD PUMPS IN LITHIUM BASED BATTERY MANUFACTURING

Below are the most common Lithium battery types. Our Signature series AODD pumps can easily be applied to any and all of these slurry pumping applications. Our Stainless Steel and Polypropylene pump materials are compatible with these process liquids as well as the slurries used to produce the Graphite Anode. From material processing right through to the battery cell production process, the SANDPIPER AODD can handle it all.

Chemical Description Common Abbreviation Chemical Compound Uses
Lithium Titanate LTO Li2TiO3 Electric Vehicles and Grid Storage
Lithium Iron Phosphate LFP LiFePO4 Electric Vehicles, Hand tools, Medical devices
Lithium Manganese Oxide LMO LiMn2O4 Electric Vehicles, Hand tools, Medical devices
Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide NMC LiNiMnCoO2 Electric Vehicles, Hand tools, Medical devices
Lithium Cobalt Oxide LCO LiCoO2 Small Batteries, Cell Phones, Laptops
Lithium Nickel Cobalt Aluminum Oxide NCA LiNiCoAIO2 Electric Vehicles and Grid Storage

The SANDPIPER AODD pump is a critical component of the Cathode/Anode process and the battery cell process. These pumps are durable in tough applications and flexible enough to handle system upsets. The SANDPIPER AODD is the perfect pump to keep your battery manufacturing process up and running.
