The production of Lithium-Ion batteries involves hypersensitive processes. The manufacturing process in NZ must take place under highly controlled climatic conditions. This has to be taken quite seriously as NZ is a humid country and high moisture levels sustain throughout the year. Dehumidifiers in NZ are essential for various other businesses like Shipping and Machinery, Pharmaceutical Warehouses, Steel Factories, etc. 

The humidity level in Lithium-Ion production plants should be less than 1 percent because of the complex chemical process during the manufacture. It can be dangerous if the humidity level exceeds more than 1 percent and the end product may not pass the inspection of quality. Humidity is a source of danger to the safety of the workers in the plant. It also can create thousands of problems in the production phase. 

  • Lithium is highly reactive to water vapor which means it readily absorbs the moisture and forms lithium hydroxide, hydrogen, and heat. In the worst-case scenario, this may even cause an explosion in the plants.
  • The battery quality, performance, and shelf life are adversely affected when lithium is exposed to the humidity level higher than one percent.
  • The profit margin also can take a hit because of the energy expended to control the humidity level.
  • The production and output will not be the same because of the humidity irregularities.
  • Humidity also increases service and maintenance costs. 

Controlled humidity to decrease fluctuation in quality

The humidity level of the environment must be less than 1 percent on a consistent basis for the production of Lithium-ion batteries. The way lithium reacts with the water produces heat and forms lithium hydroxide and hydrogen. The battery quality of the batteries can be less than acceptable whenever the production process is carried out in an environment with high relative humidity. The shelf life of the battery suffers a great deal due to this glitch in the production process. It’s not only about the economic loss to the manufacturer in the worst-case scenario humidity can pose a threat to the safety of the workers in the plant. There are various incidents of accidents occurring due to the high relative humidity in the air. The production area must be kept under the required condition to keep the life of the workers safe. 

This is the main reason why the level of humidity in the air inside lithium-ion battery manufacturing facilities is closely monitored. The production plant must have the advanced technology dry rooms where the humidity level is kept as low and constant as possible. Energy bills can be a quiet concerning thing for the manufacture in such a facility. Another factor that plays in the procedure is the moisture from the human body. These batteries are so sensitive that even a small amount of perspiration from the human body can affect production. This also poses a great technical challenge to the manufacturer. 

The desiccant dehumidifiers and the condensation dehumidifiers by Ambale are specially designed and configured to operate in very harsh environmental conditions and yet maintain such remarkable humidity levels in the production plant. With such advanced technology involved Ambale dehumidifiers can consistently maintain the humidity level at 0.5 percent even at the temperature of -60 degrees Celsius. These dehumidifiers are surprisingly reasonably priced and come with an energy-efficient system to decrease the overall energy bill. 

Ambale Dehumidifiers are available all around New Zealand in cities such as Wellington, Auckland, Northland, Tauranga, Hamilton, etc. Please contact us on +64220617007 for any queries or just send us an email at
