Bry-Air dehumidification technology for error-free, high-quality Li-ion batteries production.

The advanced technology EVs are being sought across the globe for their eco-friendly solutions, efficient at curbing the release of vehicular exhaust into the air. Even India has pledged to become the EV first nation by 2030. Lithium-ion batteries comes to the forefront, which is at the heart of the EV ecosystem. It is highly preferred for its high energy per unit mass in comparison to other electrical energy storage systems available in the market. The advanced technology used in Li-ion batteries gives it the advantage of high energy efficiency, high power-to-weight ratio, good high-temperature performance, and low self-discharge. The importance of Li-ion batteries can itself be seen from the fact that it makes up for 40-50% of the electric vehicle cost.

With so many incidents of EVs catching fire coming to light, a lot of responsibility lies on the battery sector to come up with highly competitive and safe batteries. The various components making up Li-ion batteries are highly hygroscopic and tend to absorb moisture available in the air. Hence, it is a prerequisite to carry out the battery manufacturing process in highly controlled environmental conditions. The humidity level must be highly regulated and monitored throughout the battery manufacturing and assembling. To achieve the required environmental conditions, Li-ion battery manufacturing must be carried out in Dry Rooms. Dry Rooms come along with the moisture control equipment for achieving extremely low dew point, as low as -80°C for the ideal processing of hygroscopic and moisture-sensitive materials.

Considering the importance of desiccant dehumidification technology, Bry-Air Dry Rooms come with the patented Environment Control Dehumidification System, Green DryPurge (GDP) series, and highly efficient Super Low Dew Point (LDP) series that provide dehumidification/ moisture control solutions in perfect confluence with a refrigeration system to maintain the desired RH within the narrow humidity range. Failing to control the humidity can give rise to safety concerns where the chances of explosion are high due to the production of inferior-quality batteries.

This even impacts the performance of the vehicle. As a result, the manufacturers must be agile enough to adopt dehumidification technology for the manufacturing of error-free, high-quality Li-ion batteries.

Downtime, Outages and Failures-A Nightmare for Businesses

Data Centers have become a top priority in operational structure for computation, data storage, networking, and all business applications. This adoption of data centers was fast-tracked during the COVID breakdown to compensate for the discontinuity in physical work with the help of a virtual working model.

The unanimous digital shift during lockdown contributed to the exponential consumption of internet-related services. To cope up with the new working model, big conglomerates to medium enterprises and even start-ups have moved to data centers for secure storage of critical and sensitive information with the help of cloud-based services. Securing an important place in the workplace dynamism, Large Data Centers became a part of the mission-critical category owing to their essential services across banking, telecom, large firms, consultancies sectors, and even small businesses.

Ever since COVID, the demand for data centers has only been rising. As per estimates by CRISIL, India’s data centers are projected to double by 2025, reaching 1,700–1,800 MW. But while focusing on the robust expansion, it is very important to be attentive to the unknown threats looming around data centers.

Data Centers run the risk of a downtime due to Airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) and atmospheric particulates like smoke and dust. Vapors of gases like compounds of sulphur, oxides of nitrogen, chlorine, ammonia, etc. cause chemical contamination responsible for AMC.

This is an alarming situation for the data centres and server rooms wherein miniaturisation of electronics is the new day norm due to space constraints right from PCB/ Circuit Board/ Server Rack designs, eCorrosion is all the more prevalent thereby leading to increased downtime. Further more, high relative humidity in combination with the gases forms corrosive elements on the electronic circuits that adversely affect the operation, reliability, and longevity of sensitive electronic process control equipment in industrial control rooms, as well as data centers.

Consequently, there are frequent cases of breakdown in data centers and server rooms. The downtime cost of corrosion attack levies an enormous amount on the mission-critical facility. Compounding the problem, the corrosive effect is directly responsible for the loss of information and revenue. It also leads to less efficient processes, additional maintenance, costly repairs, and unplanned downtime.

Moreover, if the environmental conditions are not as per the prescribed limits then even OEMs do not offer an annual maintenance contract for expensive cards. Therefore, preventive measures must be taken by companies to protect the data equipment and servers from any potential contamination threat.

Installing DataCenter Air Purifier (DAP), an advanced Gas Phase Filtration systems is a vital step in ensuring the protection of Datacom equipment and servers. It enables passing the contaminant-laden air stream through a gas adsorbent impregnated with neutralizing chemicals placed in a properly designed casing. By filtering out corrosive gases, the systems inhibit the damage to the micro circuitry of PCBs.

Along with this equipping the data centers with dehumidifiers further helps in solving the problem. It maintains the humidity at optimum levels to control the amount of moisture in the air and prevents the condensation of equipment.

Dehumidification and relevance for Pharma Industry

The pharmaceutical industry is well aware of the importance of moisture control systems. If not implemented, it impacts the shelf life of medicines thereby impacting the brand reputation and profitability of pharma companies. The FDA, GMP and other global policies and regulations further ensure the pharma industry to be the front runner in implementing of Dehumidification system.

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the key consumers of Dehumidification technology. From the raw material of medicine to its delivery to the end consumer through a hospital pharmacy, humidity control is an integral requirement. A basic operation of the chemicals and pharma industry is bringing together constituents, under precise conditions to form compounds. Unwanted moisture may impede desired reactions and cause the formation of undesirable end products. Moisture is natural enemy of many grinding machines and pulverization issues are faced during the powder milling process. The contact of water vapor with the product makes the material resilient and difficult to grind. The material sticks to the grinding machines and it makes it difficult to convey the material from one process to another. Dehumidification is not only relevant at the manufacturing plant, but its relevance expands to the storage, and cleanliness of the air in a hospital and even at the research and test labs.

Most pharmaceutical powders are highly hygroscopic and moisture reactive. Maintaining low humidity in the packaging areas is critical. Similarly, finished capsules effervescent tablets etc. need to be stored in a dry environment to prevent moisture regain and spoilage of products. With the uptake of nutraceuticals, soft gelatin capsules are very much in demand and if ideal temperature and humidity levels are not maintained, the gelatin softening and solidification takes place leading to rejections.

To prevent pharmaceutical products from moisture, desiccant dehumidifiers are the perfect solution that removes the humidity from the air. It is used in various areas of the pharmaceutical industry.
