The most important factor governing the manufacturing of Lithium-ion batteries is the fact that they must be produced in a Dry Room with very stringent humidity conditions as low as 1% to 10% RH.
Lithium battery application is fast growing across diversified industries like Electronics, Automotive, Solar, Telecom, Power, Defence, Healthcare etc. There is large scale production of lithium batteries and moisture acts as a major deterrent leading to the growth of this industry.
Lithium batteries are affected by uncontrolled temperature and humidity. If the lithium battery is exposed to moisture during production, it may lead to impairing quality, thus:
Pure Lithium metal is extremely sensitive to even tiny amounts of moisture in the air. Hence, slightest of exposure to moisture leads to reduced performance and reduced product life of Lithium-ion batteries.
High technology often entails working in precisely controlled environmental conditions. Lithium batteries are a classic example of a product where production is not possible in the absence of efficient dehumidification. Dehumidification, or moisture control, has proven itself to be a critical factor in the control of the environment in the dry rooms without which lithium battery manufacturing is not feasible.
Bry-Air’s DryPurge® (DP) patented technology for dehumidifiers ensures optimum performance of dehumidifiers, even at the ultra low dew point, up to (-) 90°C (-130°F). Bry-Air is the only total solution provider for Dry Rooms with Environment Control Equipment incorporating Patented Technology critical for Lithium Battery Manufacturing
