Safety of large format lithium ion battery system is paramount. The proliferation of battery systems in safety critical applications such as marine, aviation, residential and automotive means that the margin for error is extremely small. A single safety incident in these markets could slow the adoption of lithium ion batteries which have proven to be valuable to meet today’s rigorous energy demands.
Li-ion Tamer® is a new line of products being designed by Nexceris to make batteries safer. Our approach provides unique information about the condition of the battery through monitoring for off-gassing event from the cells. This approach can provide the early warning necessary to take action to prevent a battery fire in your system.
fuelcellmaterials was established in 2000 as a wholly owned division of Nexceris, LLC to commercialize innovative ceramic materials technology and products. These technologies and products are suited to the developing of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and fuel processing markets which include such items as: test fixtures, powders, pastes catalysts and components.
fuelcellmaterials is backed by its dedicated staff of material scientists and engineers who deliver high quality materials and assist in helping our clients meet all of their needs. This high level of expertise allows our staff to quickly and accurately tailor our powders and components to fit the needs and processes of our clients. These changes can be as simple as a physical property change or as complex as streamlining a material to work with specific applications.
In 2010, NTM Sensors was formed as a business unit of Nexceris, LLC to actuate our vision of providing specialized sensing systems for these neglected markets, and provide better sensing options to manufacturers. Through our extensive work in emerging technologies and environmental markets, we recognized a large deficiency in quality safety sensors and monitoring systems suited for these markets. For such tailored markets, like the ones in which we work, you need tailored products. So, we resolved to create innovative and highly selective sensors designed specifically for the advanced technologies and environmental markets in which we were working.
NTM Sensors leveraged its unique chemi-resistive sensing technology to launch its initial product – the NTM SenseH2® hydrogen sensor. It has since produced the NTM SenseH2®-R hydrogen sensor and has several more products in the works.
As lithium-ion technology becomes cheaper and more accessible, lithium-ion battery production will continue to increase in the future, but it does not come without risks.
Using the LEVER process, Nexceris used our materials science expertise to help a developer of world-class battery materials to re-engineer a lab process for added economics and safety.
Scott Swartz, Nexceris’ Chief Technology Officer, was recently named the medal winner of the Leadership in the Advancement of Ceramic Technology award.
