Bühler offers batch and quasi-continuous processes using FILMIX. The well-established technology by Bühler’s cooperation partner PRIMIX enables the production of high-quality electrode slurries, i.e. for the anode, cathode and the separator layer.
The high-speed, thin-film method of dispersion using FILMIX allows for sharp particle size distributions and uniformity in dispersions of nano-meter sized particles. The highly efficient, turbulent mixing process results in better battery qualities – for example charging/discharging behavior and lifespan – due to the homogenous dispersion of the conductive carbon in the active material of the cathode slurry.
