VALUE THROUGH INNOVATION

APS is the only Indian company offering a full range of Li and metal disulphide
electro-chemistries, some unique to the ASB Group APS can provide best in class designs considering performance vs. cost because of this range of options.

 

The table shows the general classifications for Thermal Battery Technologies which relate to the type of anode used. From an electrochemical point of view, lithium

is the most valuable element due to its high reducing potential and its high specific coulombic capacity.

 

The melting point of lithium is lower than the battery’s internal operating temperature. Consequently APS used various lithium alloys, such as LiAl (Lithium Aluminium) or LiSi (Lithium Silicon).

We also offer our patented Lithium-Iron mixture, named LAN (Lithium

Anode), which is an exclusive ASB Group technology, which results in higher cell voltage, higher specific power e.g. up to 5.5kW/kg, and improved safety. Developed over more than 60 years, this range of technologies ensures we can meet your most demanding requirements whatever the application or operating conditions. With ever more demanding environmental requirements; REACH, RoHS etc. ASB Group are developing new chemistries which eliminate hazardous materials.
