Electrovault – Lithium Ion storage and charging solution

Lithium Ion Battery Store – Introducing Electrovault

Over two billion Lithium ion cells are produced every year, but major safety concerns surround battery storage, quarantine procedures, transport/disposal of damaged batteries and thermal runaway. During a thermal runaway, the high heat created by the failing cell can develop to the next cell, causing it to also become thermally unstable. A battery pack can be destroyed within minutes or last for hours as each cell runs away.  An irreversible thermal event in a lithium-ion battery can be initiated in several ways, by spontaneous internal or external short-circuit, overcharging, external heating or fire or even mechanical abuse.

During a thermal runaway hydrogen fluoride HF, phosphorus pentafluoride (PF5) and phosphoryl fluoride (POF3) are released, studies have shown that using water as a fire suppressant may also increase the formation of HF.

Quality control
Temperature control is a critical factor when storing quantities of valuable products such as solvents, adhesives and coatings. It is essential in many industrial processes to maintain the optimal temperatures for these products to obtain the highest product quality for goods produced. For processes such as paint mixing, adhesive appliances and ingredient storage – companies need correct temperature controlled storage that is both compliant and fit for purpose.

Chemstore specialises in the manufacture of bespoke temperature controlled chemical stores that can be designed specifically for your product requirements.
