NETZSCH Bead Mills Grind Nanoparticles to Improve Lithium Ion Battery Function
Press release date: Apr 29, 2009
The LMZ ZETA II wet bead mill is capable of grinding MnO2 for lithium-ion battery anodes down to 150 nanometers using yttrium zirconia (YTZ) beads. The nanoparticles improve a battery's specific capacity because the smaller the particles, the less distance ions must travel, resulting in much easier diffusion. In addition, nanoparticles speed the charging rate of the battery and improve its energy density, allowing for more power in a smaller size battery.
The ZETA II high-efficiency grinding system offers precision engineering that is ideal for nanoparticle formulations. It offers exact reproducibility, batch after batch, with high throughput speed over a broad range of viscosities. With great efficiency, the system can make 12 or more passes, or turnovers, per batch in the time required to run one pass on a standard horizontal mill.
