Cathode Mixing for Battery Manufacturing

Battery technology is projected to grow at a rate of at least 8 percent for the next ten years, and for this reason, companies are going to be looking to increase production further. This projected growth is the direct result of a global push toward green energies and technologies. Improving preparation times when making the cathodes for batteries results in improved equipment efficiency, and fewer bottlenecks for battery manufacturers gives them a competitive advantage in today’s ever-evolving market.

Processall’s plow mixing technology offers battery manufacturers a leg up on the competition. Listed below are some of the benefits of moving
toward plow mixing technologies for battery manufacturers.

  • High-speed mixing capability ensuring homogeneity of the metal powders and increased rates of production
  • Due to the high level of customization of the mixers, Processall units can eliminate multi-unit blending
  • Ability to mix metals powders together with an optional flame-retardant system able to be added to the mixer preventing the possibilities of metallic dust fires and explosions
  • Reduced need for multistep blending operations for making the cathode paste
  •           Thermal jackets allow for optimal temperature controls when making the cathode paste
