Paderborn, Germany – The processing of the required raw materials for the production of lithium batteries is subject to exacting quality requirements – up to the limits of technical feasibility. For example, the contamination of cathode masses by foreign ions, in particular iron, must be prevented at all costs. Lödige has addressed this challenging process-technical task with a special version of the proven Ploughshare mixer.

Fluidized bed – an ideal solution for custom particle design
A fluidized bed occurs when process air flowing upward lifts a layer of solid particles, fluidizing the particles. The process air is used to generate the fluidized-bed state, and also supplies the required thermal energy for the particle processes at the same time.
In addition to the thermal treatment of solid materials, fluidized-bed processes are used for drying tasks, for forming granules from powders (spray agglomeration) or liquids (spray granulation), and for the coating of particles (spray coating).
