Rotary shaft seals for 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 eliminate 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.
The future of batteries for electric vehicles looks to belong 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.
The need for cathode powder will most likely grow rapidly, and powder manufacturers need to be ready to meet the demand. So what could stand in the way?
One answer to this question is probably not top of mind, but it should be: mixer failures resulting from seal failure. Why? Because mixers and blenders failures create:
The time to evaluate and upgrade mixer seals is now, before the demand increases. Installing CinchSeal rotary shaft seals helps ensure that mixers and blenders continue operating at peak efficiency.
In chemical plants, mixer and blender failures happen for several
reasons, but the main causes include:
CinchSeal rotary shaft seals last longer. They need less maintenance, which means time and cost savings. And they don’t have to be replaced as often. When it is necessary, only internal parts – elastomer and rotor cups – need to be replaced. Changing them out is also a simple process.
This simplicity is especially evident in CinchSeal split rotary shaft seals made for harsh environments, like those found in chemical plants. Split seals offer a number of advantages:
Two features of every CinchSeal rotary shaft seal help stop product leakage and environment contamination:
