The global electric vehicle market continues to experience exponential growth, stimulated by factors such as mounting environmental concerns and buoyed by technological advancements that are making green vehicles an increasingly viable and driver friendly alternative. With its features of high energy density ratio, no memory effect and low self-discharge, lithium batteries are ideal to be used in electric vehicles. A number of the world’s largest carmakers have already expanded into this nascent sector with many others, if not all, expected to do so in the near future.
Defined by constantly increasing competition as the demand for green vehicles grows, EV battery manufacturing is a highly demanding industrial application in which success largely depends on the quality, efficiency and reliability of the used equipment, including the compressed air system elements. Among the key factors to consider when designing your compressed air system are:
With compressed air playing a key role in electric vehicle battery manufacturing, selecting the right compressed air system technology that will best meet your specific process requirements is of the utmost importance, as is reliance on an experienced supplier able to provide you with various types of compressors and ancillary system elements depending on your unique application needs.
Both oil-free and oil-lubricated compressors are commonly used in the electric vehicle battery manufacturing industry, with producers often making the decision based on their past usage habits. However, choosing between the two compressor types requires taking several important considerations into account as both technologies have their pros and cons.
Battery manufacturers need to think about criteria ranging from initial acquisition costs versus total cost of ownership through maintenance requirements and downstream air network provisions to air contamination risks and environmental impact. An experienced provider of pressure and vacuum solutions for battery factories will guide you through this difficult selection process.
