Glove Boxes for Battery Applications
Glove boxes are an indispensable tool in the development and manufacture of batteries. The materials used in the development of the batteries (Lithium, sodium) must be implemented in controlled atmospheres devoid of H2O, O2, N2. Jacomex designs and manufactures glove boxes with argon purifiers.
Different Glove Boxes for Battery Applications
Lithium batteries are widely used in the field of embedded systems because of their high energy density for its mass and volume. Lithium-ion (Li-ion) technology has to meet ever greater demands for autonomy, lifetime, safety or even miniaturization and is therefore the subject of much research in laboratories. A more advanced development phase is the production of lithium batteries in series by large brands.
Lithium is a pyrophoric product whose combustion leads to the emission of toxic fumes, it must therefore be handled in a lithium-ion glove box in a controlled argon atmosphere with an oxygen and moisture content of less than 1 ppm.
