Lithium Battery Storage & Storage Guidelines
Lithium batteries are efficient and environmentally friendly innovations that have benefited many industries around the globe. The innovate technology is growing and will soon take over the standard lead-acid batteries that have been used for decades. Applications that integrate lithium batteries include the medical industry, electronic operations, military equipment, large and small vehicle power, data centers, marine applications, airports, and universities.
Dangers of Lithium Batteries
Lithium batteries are known to spontaneously ignite and pose explosion hazards that are caused due to the batteries overheating. Lithium batteries contain lithium metal which is a highly combustible material. Overheating can be caused by the poor design of the battery, electrical shorting, overcharging, rapid discharge, or increased storage temperatures. When a lithium battery becomes overheated, thermal runaway is the process which occurs. Thermal runaway is a reaction internal to the battery, which causes temperature and pressure increase, causing the battery to ignite leading to combustion. Lithium batteries can store large amounts of energy, therefore fires and explosion hazards are high.
When storing large quantities of lithium batteries and their parts, hazardous risks increase exponentially. Lithium battery storage fires can result in large-scale fires that can cause facilities to catch on fire and put personnel at risk. The risks involved with large quantities of lithium battery storage must be assessed and managed properly.
One of the most important requirements regarding lithium battery maintenance is safe storage, and handling. Manage hazardous risks by using a proper lithium battery storage building and the right accessories to maintain your inventory.
