  1. Graphite on Center Stage in Lithium-Ion Battery Manufacturing



    Spherical Graphite (SG), natural graphite flake micronized and shaped to spheroidal form, has moved to center stage in the battery industry where SG is increasingly the preferred anode material of Li-ion batteries, deployed in residential and industrial energy-grid storage, electric vehicles, and consumer devices.

    SG packed anodes are proving to outclass the results of anode materials alternatives, a function of the inherent properties of natural graphite flake (conductivity, heat-resistance, intercalated (layered) morphology, and the milled spheroidal shape. When compared to alternatives (including synthetic graphite), SG packed anodes will have superior (high) tap density, charging rates, and volumetric energy capacity.

    CMS designs and manufactures the leading graphite micronizing milling systems (typically 150 – 400 HP), which are capable of achieving product grinds of all standard graphite powder products down to +/-5 µm. CMS also offers mill systems for the production of battery-grade Spherical Graphite.

  2. Sorbent Injection for Mitigation of SO2, SO3, & Acid Gases

    Size reduction milling systems are at the heart of Dry Sorbent Injection (DSI) technologies for regulatory compliant mitigation of sulfur dioxide, sulfur trioxide, and hydrogen chloride | SO2, SO3, HCl | and marginal pollutants. The quality of DSI performance is pronouncedly driven by the milled surface area of the injected sorbent material.

    The residence time of the milled sorbent material with the toxins (pollutants) occurs within the flue-gas stream at a targeted temperature window, where the level of pollutant capture and neutralization occurs. By increasing the surface size of the sorbent, you are creating a greater contact area for adherence of toxins to the sorbent surface, and therefore achieving a higher pollutant capture value. Increasing particle surface area on a steep distribution curve is the challenge for sorbent milling technologies. CMS DSI Systems meet that challenge.

    CMS is a leading manufacturer of industrial and environmental size-reduction milling systems and process technologies, including DSI systems.
