Synthetic Graphite for Lithium-Ion Batteries

What is Synthetic Graphite? Synthetic Graphite is a manufactured product made by high-temperature treatment of amorphous carbon materials. In most instances, the primary feedstock used for making synthetic graphite is calcined petroleum coke and coal tar pitch, both of which are composed of highly graphitizable forms of carbon.

Synthetic Graphite Uses: Synthetic Graphite is used in many applications including but not limited to friction, foundry, electrical carbons, fuel cell bi-polar plates, coatings, electrolytic processes, corrosion products, conductive fillers, rubber and plastic compounds, and drilling applications. Recently with the increased amount of electric vehicles being manufactured, lithium-ion batteries are one of the biggest use cases for Synthetic Graphite. The use of Synthetic Graphite in electric vehicle batteries help boost energy density and reduce charging times.

Contract Manufacturing Experience

Elcan, while utilizing the Hi-Sifter equipment,  has successfully separated Synthetic Graphite Elcan Industries works closely with many graphite users and producers to help them sieve graphite powder into very fine, very tight specifications. The key is having energy on the screen in order to separate graphite at sizes as fine as 10 microns. The shape of the graphite effects the amount of energy needed to make the separation. The Hi-Sifter system can handle all forms of the powder. For finer separations of graphite down to 1 micron, the Elbow Jet system is better suited since there are no screen openings that small. Both technologies contain no rotating parts/high wear items and are available for testing or tolling at Elcan. If you would like to schedule a trial to run Graphite powder at our toll processing facility to see how sieving Graphite on the Hi-Sifter can improve your process, give us a call!
