Filtration solutions in manufacturing Cathode Active Material

Li-ion batteries play a significant factor in the world’s push to net-zero. The cathode is at the heart of lithium-ion batteries and must be in its purest form to deliver the highest possible efficiency. Manufacturers of Cathode Active Material (CAM) encounter numerous challenges due to the inclusion of various other chemicals in CAM, and the need to meet specific particle size distribution, preserve crystal structure, control surface area and porosity, and adhere to rigorous contaminant level specifications. Pall Corporation offers a comprehensive range of purification and filtration products that can assist you in optimizing your manufacturing process.


A process schematic for the CAM process shown below identifies the critical purification steps, from the raw materials, through the precursor stage,  to the final CAM product.
