In battery manufacturing, air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps are instrumental for various fluid-handling tasks. These pumps are utilized to transfer a range of substances critical to the battery production process, including chemicals, electrolytes, and solvents. One of the primary applications of these pumps is in the transfer of chemicals and electrolytes used in battery formulation. They efficiently move these substances from storage tanks to mixing units or directly into production lines. Their ability to handle corrosive and abrasive fluids makes them particularly suitable for this purpose.

Moreover, AODD pumps are adept at transferring slurries containing active materials like lithium, lead, or nickel. These slurries are integral to the battery manufacturing process, often requiring movement between different stages such as mixing, coating, or deposition.

Chemical Transfer and Handling in Battery Manufacturing

AODD pumps are pivotal for transferring and handling various chemicals crucial to the battery manufacturing process. These chemicals encompass electrolytes, acids, and other reactive substances fundamental to battery formulation. These pumps excel in moving these chemicals from storage tanks to mixing units or directly into production lines with precision and reliability.

Their capability to manage corrosive and abrasive fluids ensures the safe and efficient movement of chemicals throughout the manufacturing facility. Employing features such as leak detection systems and corrosion-resistant materials further enhances pumps’ suitability for chemical handling applications in battery manufacturing, promoting operational safety and product integrity.

Slurry Management and Transport for Battery Production

In battery manufacturing, the creation of slurries containing active materials like lithium, lead, or nickel is commonplace. AODD pumps play a critical role in managing and transporting these slurries between various production stages. Whether from mixing tanks to coating or deposition processes, these pumps facilitate the efficient transfer of slurries with minimal risk of contamination or degradation.

Their sturdy construction and capacity to handle abrasive materials ensure reliable operation, contributing to the consistent quality of battery products. Moreover, these pumps can be outfitted with specialized diaphragms and seals designed to withstand the abrasive nature of slurries, further enhancing their performance and durability in slurry transport applications.
