Lindor Battery Powder Mixer
Lindor Battery Powder Mixer

New Specially-Designed Battery Powder Mixer from Lindor

A series of innovations in the powder blending machine design has led to the successful execution of the newest Lindor mixer, specially designed and optimized for battery powder processing.
DORDRECHT, The Netherlands, 15 December 2022 — Lindor, manufacturer of specialized gentle touch mixers, sends out a new, state-of-the-art battery powder mixer for delivery to a client in Japan.

The demand for battery powder is soaring. According to Statista, the size of the global lithium-ion battery market is projected to grow by over 72% by 2026, which puts pressure on battery manufacturers to scale production quickly. However, battery powder comes with a unique set of challenges for manufacturers- namely regarding the risk of metal ingress.

Lindor has been engaged in battery powder mixing projects for well over 20 years. The unique gentle touch technology with which Lindor mixers operate is particularly well-suited for powders that are especially sensitive to metal contamination, as there are no moving parts within the mixing drum.

To answer the demand from battery manufacturers to develop brand-new production plants or install additional processing lines with updated, energy efficient machines, Lindor has engineered a novel solution for several mixing, cooling and drying functions.
In realizing the newest battery powder mixer, adaptations had to be made to the Lindor base model mixer.As battery powder is a highly cohesive powder with a high angle of repose, the angle of the inlet has been steepened to allow for better powder flow into the drum of the mixer. The angle of the scoops within the drum has also been steepened as well as mirror polished, to allow the powder to slide off easily as it blends.

Powder flow is further stimulated by an installation of a special component, in both the inlet and outlet of the mixer. The special component consists of a spring and piston that quickly release and close, sending out a powerful shockwave to sweep the powder down into the drum.

While these innovations are enough to allow a Lindor mixer to process almost every other type of powder, the stringent quality requirements for particle shape, size, and purity (i.e., the absence of metal contamination) drove the last details of the innovation. These details include the use of alternative materials to further reduce any risk of metal contamination and special seal constructions tailored to combat the abrasive properties of battery powder.

”Battery powder is a very high-quality product which demands precisely-engineered process equipment,” commented Managing Director Bastiaan Soeteman. ”Lindor mixers, coolers, and dryers facilitate quality requirements while operating with optimum production efficiency.”

With an optimized design and high energy efficiency, Lindor’s new gentle touch battery powder mixer serves as an ideal solution for the coming new production lines expected to spring up around the globe.

Lindor innovates for even greater powder flow in mixing
Due to the extremely cohesive properties of very specific types of powders, a challenge can arise in getting these powders to flow. For over three decades, Lindor has been manufacturing industrial mixers and processing machines for powders, granulates and bulk solids. Among the large variety of applications our powder blenders have been built for, there are a few exceptional powders that tend to cause a fuss. Due to the extremely cohesive properties of very specific types of powders, a challenge can arise in getting these powders to flow from one section of a machine into the next. We like to refer to them as ’sticky powders’, and these exceptional powders include: # Battery powder # Fine minerals # Fine ceramics # Pigments After having experienced a challenge in the powder flow from the inlet to the drum of our mixer machine, we decided to come up with an innovative improvement for these very special powders. Tackling flowability challenge For almost all powders, a special coating like Teflon within Lindor powder mixers, along with the water blasting and mirror polishing, is

Highlights of Lindor projects in 2020
Because of coronavirus, many trade fairs and events did not take place last year. A missed opportunity to meet and show you our latest developments. We have not been idle over the past year, and have been working on some special and challenging projects that we would like to share with you. Mixer-Cooler for battery powder Lindor has developed two large Mixer-Coolers for the production of battery powders for a large international project. Despite the corona pandemic, the project provided a rewarding international cooperation between the European customer, a Chinese engineering team and a Scandinavian installation team. The Mixer-Coolers feature a new technical innovation, in which a very thin, heat-conducting ceramic coating is applied to all contact parts. This ensures that no contact occurs between the battery powder and the metal of the drum wall. The drum itself has a double wall and double vanes through which cooling water flows as the drum rotates. Due to the
