Industries & Applications
Because the use of lithium batteries is so vast, Thermo Shield fire suppressant solutions can be used in a variety of industries
LOGISTICS & SHIPPING
Ensure that deliveries are completed safely on-time, with no damage to any other cargo if there is a lithium-ion battery fire.
AIRLINE & AVIATION
The FAA reports that, on average, a lithium-ion battery fires occurs every 10 days. Thermo Shield can help to ensure the safe transportation of both bulk shipment of batteries in undercarriage as well as passenger carry-ons – laptops and phones etc.
Shipment of lithium-ion batteries per year is estimated to be somewhere in the billions. With the majority of lithium-ion cells or battery packs produced in Asia, as well as the increased need for just-in-time (JIT) shipping, this means that airline shipping is used frequently.
Government & Military
Lithium-ion battery use is high in the military. Safe transportation of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries for uses in the field such as powering voice and data radios is a must.
The popularity of electric cars powered by lithium-ion batteries is on the rise. Cars are therefore manufactured and shipped around the globe more frequently, and need to arrive safely to their required destination.
According to UPS, a single medical device shipper does over 750,000 annual shipments. Additionally, due to the rapid turn-around time needed for these devices, airlines are often the shipping method required.
A single camera equipment shipper does over 7.9 million annual shipments, just three of the major cell phone companies ship a combined 16-million packages by air a year, and a single laptop supplier can transport 14.6 million laptops by air per year. These products need to be protected during shipment.
Transporting lithium-ion batteries or battery powered devices isn’t just bulk cargo shipments, it encompasses transportation of any number of household devices from point A to point B.
Safely store your lithium-ion batteries or battery powered devices without fear of damage from thermal runaway fires.
