Donaldson expands battery venting product line with Dual-Stage Flex resealable vent

Donaldson has expanded its dual-stage battery pack vent line with the addition of the Dual-Stage Flex battery vent. The new battery vent enables pressure relief at lower pressures, helping support battery life and reliability. EV weight can be reduced by using thinner battery pack walls, but thin walls can’t withstand higher pressures within the battery… Read more »

Donaldson launches two-stage protective vent for battery packs

Vehicle filter company Donaldson has launched its Dual-Stage Battery Vent, which the company says provides protection from pressure, heat, and contaminants. The battery vent’s first stage equalizes pressure, while providing protection from water, dirt, and automotive fluids. The second-stage venting kicks in if rapid pressure and heat build-up occur. During this stage, the vents fully… Read more »

Thermal Conductive Adhesives For Next Generation Cell-to-Pack Configurations

Cell-to-Pack is the direct bonding of individual battery cells to the battery pack’s cooling plate, and it’s a new trend in the EV market. It improves performance by providing higher pack energy density, improved part complexity, lower thermal loads on the battery pack, and simpler, lower-cost manufacturing of packs. To support Cell-to-Pack (CTP), new thermally… Read more »

How To Accelerate EV Time To Market Through Robust Subcomponent Testing

As automakers add EVs to their lineups, testing and validation of new models impacts time to market. Automakers can save time by selecting subcomponents that are pre-validated for their application. Donaldson develops core venting technologies to address various battery pack requirements and tests its battery vents extensively using standard and non-standard test methods. In this… Read more »
