Ibc systems: a hybrid solution for handling bulk solids in the batteryIn this whitepaper, we outline why IBC systems provide the midway between batch processing and continuous processing production lines.
Bulk solids are composed of many particles or granules of varying sizes, densities and chemical compositions. Operators in bulk solid processing know that getting bulk materials to flow in a controlled manner is difficult, but often, critical to safe manufacturing processes.
This is especially the case in the battery industry. The hazardous properties, particle size, sensitivity, and consistency of the materials involved mean that they are hazardous and poor flowing, and therefore, problematic to handle. Therefore, the industry requires contained, safe, secure, and highly controllable equipment.
In the past, this has meant making challenging trade-offs between efficiency, safety, and expenditure, but now, there is a solution. Here, we outline why IBC systems provide the midway between batch processing and continuous processing production lines.
