Leak-Free Rotary Shaft Seals Essential for Mixing Lithium Ion Battery Slurries, Pastes, Gels and Powders
Rotary shaft seals on battery slurry mixing equipment play a critical role in lithium-ion battery production. Leaks past the radial shaft seal can be costly and dangerous. Rotary shaft seals from CinchSeal are uniquely suited to eliminating leaks. The result is reduced maintenance, elimination of shaft wear, reduced downtime, and the lowest-total-cost-of operation for cathode and anode slurry mixing operations for lithium-ion battery producers.
For the moment, at least, it looks like the future of batteries for electric vehicles belongs to the cathode powder industry. Innovations in this area are moving toward solid-state powder-composite batteries with much thicker electrode structures and, therefore, much higher capacity. The upshot: electric vehicles with far greater range.
