Battery fire occurred in systems with Li-ion Tamer
Safety of large format lithium-ion battery system is paramount. Recent lithium-ion battery fires have shown to slow the adoption of lithium-ion batteries, especially in the stationary energy storage market, where the advantages of lithium-ion batteries have proven to be valuable in meeting today’s rigorous energy demands.
The Li-ion Tamer® products were developed by the dedicated team at Nexceris, LLC to make batteries safer. Our dual passions for safety and supporting the growth of clean alternative energy lead us down the path of the Li-ion Tamer® development. The technology was first developed by Nexceris with support of the U.S. Navy to improve the safety of lithium-ion battery installations on board ships. Since then the technology has evolved into products for utility, commercial, and industrial battery energy storage systems.
Since our start in 2010, we have conducted countless tests on battery cells and worked with battery system designers, end-users, regulators, and subject matter experts to develop approaches to improve the safety of lithium-ion battery systems. Our approach offers unique information about the condition of the battery through monitoring of off-gas events from the cells. This can provide the early warning necessary to act and prevent a battery fire in your system.
In 2020 we partnered with Xtralis, a Honeywell company, to leverage their world-wide network of distribution, sales, and installation expertise. The partnership aims to continuously improve the Li-ion Tamer products and provide innovative safety solutions, building a safety platform for all lithium-ion battery users, and enabling the growth of clean energy. We understand that no needs are met by the same answers and would like the opportunity to work with your team to identify the best solution for your needs.
Put the team of battery experts at Li-ion Tamer to work for you.
Li-ion Tamer® is designed to provide enhanced safety for your battery systems and can be installed at a wide range of integration points throughout your design. Off-gas begins as gases that are generated inside individual cells due to exothermic reactions which begin to occur as a result of internal problems in the battery or external abuses. The release of these gases is the first stage of a battery failure which can self-propagate until the battery begins to smoke and go into fully developed thermal runaway. The ability to detect the gases provides a signal capable is providing early warning of the eventual cell failure and can enable actions which can help mitigate the effects of the battery failure. Li-ion Tamer® products are designed to detect and protect from individual modules all the way to room level integrated solutions.
Markets We Serve and Beyond
Lithium ion batteries provide power and energy densities demanded by many of today’s energy storage needs. For this reason, lithium ion batteries are being utilized in battery systems across a wide range of markets. Li-ion Tamer® battery monitoring systems are designed with the flexibility of these markets in mind. The operating principles of the monitoring systems are applicable to all lithium ion battery chemistries, form factors, and battery system layouts; they also operate independent of the operational state of the batteries and can even provide valuable monitoring of batteries during shipping and storage.
