As a very important connection point in the powder conveying system for the production of lithium battery materials, the service life of the pipeline often determines the maintenance time and work efficiency of the entire transportation system. Due to material erosion, bent pipes need to withstand greater impact and wear than straight pipes. Alumina has been widely used in powder conveying systems in the lithium battery industry because of its super wear resistance.
Before the application of wear-resistant ceramic elbows, the pipes of the cathode material of lithium batteries were mainly made of glass material. The advantage is that it can isolate metal pollution and ensure the quality of lithium batteries. The disadvantage is that it is brittle, weak in impact resistance, and easily damaged and broken. The wear resistance of ordinary glass materials is relatively weak.
Compared with glass, wear-resistant ceramic materials have greater advantages. It can also isolate metal pollution, and its hardness far exceeds that of metal and glass. It has excellent wear resistance and guaranteed impact resistance.
To sum up, wear-resistant ceramic pipes in lithium battery powder conveying systems are popular, mainly because they are reasonably priced, can isolate metal pollution, and are wear-resistant and impact-resistant, which can greatly extend the life of the pipeline and improve the working efficiency of the material conveying system.
