Sturtevant remains rooted in automobile technology with battery-grade lithium carbonate

Did you know? From the first automatic transmission to the latest version of electric vehicle batteries…Sturtevant remains rooted in automobile technology The modern-day automatic transmission can be traced all the way back to 1904 when T.J Sturtevant of the Sturtevant Mill Company located in Boston, Massachusetts designed and developed the very first automatic transmission.  It

Battery Grade Lithium Carbonate

If fine particles are good, are finer particles better? The ongoing nanoparticle revolution continues to challenge fine powder producers with the pursuit for finer and finer particle size distributions.  The ultra-high surface-to-volume ratios of nanoparticles are very appealing to some producers. Will the future of battery grade lithium carbonate applications lead producers to pursue a

Pre-Classifying Before Milling or Micronizing Lithium

Reducing any raw material in size is typically the most expensive part of any dry processing system.  This is due to the amount of energy required to breakdown larger particles into smaller particles.  So if you can reduce the amount of material that has to be subjected to milling, grinding or micronizing, then you will

Redefining Lithium Carbonate Roll Compaction

As is the case with many raw materials, lithium carbonate micronizing efficiency can often times be improved by densifying the finely sized powders into granules. The industry leading K.R. Komarek Roll Compactor has become the industry standard for lithium carbonate processors.  The Roll Compactor takes the finely sized powders and compresses them into a solid
