Low dewpoint dry room enables increased battery research capability
Sharp Laboratories of Europe carries out research into new ideas for Sharp’s innovative technologies including mobile phones, laptops, televisions and battery solutions.
Part of this research includes developing next generation battery technologies using new materials. In the past, Sharp Laboratories of Europe used gloves box isolators to create the climate conditions needed to work with batteries.
Some components of the batteries can be moisture senstive, working in a dry environment removes the variation in results caused by humidity in the atmosphere.
“Working with battery cells of this nature is very delicate work” explains Katherine Smith, Research Supervisor at Sharp Laboratories of Europe.
When looking to scale up their research capability, Sharp Laboratories of Europe were referred to Munters by a colleague who had experience of working with the company in the past. After visiting site and reviewing customer needs, Munters recommended a turnkey solution for the supply and installation of a dry room with temperature and humidity control.
