Battery manufacturing is a meticulous process where the integrity and performance of the final product hinge on the purity of its raw materials. Contaminants, even in trace amounts, can skew the properties of materials, making it imperative to ensure that the raw materials are thoroughly analyzed and tested for their purity. Eurofins EAG Laboratories, with its cutting-edge techniques and seasoned expertise, stands at the forefront of such advanced material analyses, ensuring that the battery industry gets the impeccable quality it seeks.
The analysis of battery raw materials is conducted at the Syracuse, NY lab. Located near Syracuse, in Liverpool NY, this laboratory is 50,000 sq. ft. with facilities analyzing high-purity metals/alloys, high performance composites, semiconductors, medical devices and more.
To ensure the utmost purity of raw materials in battery production, it’s essential to employ state-of-the-art techniques and tools that can detect even the most minuscule contaminants. EAG several techniques in the realm of lithium-ion battery analysis:
Purity Testing: EAG has the ability to determine trace and ultra-trace level chemicalimpurities of your battery raw materials.
Quality Testing: EAG can assure the quality of your
battery raw materials.
Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry (GDMS): GDMS is used to detect trace quantities of elements, pinpointing impurities and contaminants that might jeopardize battery performance. GDMS is also ideal for attaining bulk analysis of concentrates or individual cathode and annode material.
Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS): ICP-MS is ideal for purity certification, cleaning validation and contamination identification for a broad range of materials and processes. It is also great for supply chain efficiency support ranging from raw materials qualification, product safety, research and development, and production control to failure analysis.
Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES): ICP-OES is used to detect the presence of trace metals, playing a key role in tracking the performance of the cathode and understanding any deviations in battery performance.
Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS): LA-ICP-MS uses direct micro-scale sampling to provide high precision elemental and stable isotope analyses of solid materials.
Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM): SEM provides high-resolution and high-depth-of-field images of the sample surface and near-surface. SEM is one of the most widely used analytical tools, due to the extremely detailed images it can quickly provide.
