Lithium-ion battery production

The production of cathode material requires temperatures of around 800 to 1,000 degrees Celsius in the calcination process. Also, the manufacturing process has to be designed and controlled to ensure exceptionally high purity levels in the cathode materials.

As with all industrial high-temperature production processes, the challenge for furnace operators is to maximize energy efficiency and productivity, while ensuring a consistent, high-quality cathode material.

Depending on the type of furnace, Globar® SiC heating elements and Fibrothal® heating modules can be used in cathode material production, where they offer the advantage of being able to control temperatures precisely. The Kanthal® Flow Heater can also be used to introduce heated gas into the furnace, which can help increase productivity even further.
