Schenck Process GmbH (Germany) - Press Release: Schenck Process presents new feeder for battery cell production at Battery Show 2023.
Schenck Process goes battery – with the new CS+ loss-in-weight feeding system. It is specially designed to meet the requirements of electrode production. The modularly configurable feeding system is suitable for both continuous and batch processes for the production of battery mass.
The production of lithium-ion batteries is complex. Maximum precision and protection for employees and the environment are required because producers have to handle materials that are difficult to process, in some cases highly flammable and highly toxic. In this context, the requirements for minimizing dust emissions from process equipment are continuously increasing. With CS+, Schenck Process is presenting a new loss-in-weight feeding system that, as part of the value chain in battery production, stands for maximum process reliability in the field of component dosing.
Expertise from food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries as product basis:
CS+ fits seamlessly into plant concepts that rely on a consistent containment concept to limit dust emissions. One of the outstanding features of the Schenck Process system is its high dust-tightness. This minimizes risks for users during production. For the new development, Schenck Process was able to draw on many years of experience and proven solutions from the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, thus focusing on safe handling and cleaning as well as the prevention of product contamination through metallic abrasion. The loss-in-weight feeder enables users to achieve consistently high accuracy for consistently high product quality.
The modular design allows CS+ to be individually adapted to customer requirements. This concept makes it possible to cover a large feeding range with just one feeder type: CS+ is suitable for small quantities from 1 liter per hour as well as high feeding capacities of up to 5,500 liters per hour. The system is available in two sizes for different outputs and operating modes. A mechanical lift arm makes CS+ easy to clean. The precise and particularly robust design in conjunction with an optional end bearing of the feeding screw additionally reduces the risk of contamination due to the metallic contact between the feeding screw and discharge pipe.
