Special case for the safe transport of Lithium Ion batteries
About six million Germans already own an e-bike or pedelec. The industry is booming. Dealers are therefore increasingly faced with the challenge of storing and transporting lithium-ion batteries as an energy source for these bikes. For transport they need a certified and safe solution, because lithium ion batteries are always classified as dangerous goods, regardless of whether they are new and intact, used or even damaged. Safe storage is also important for owners of e-bikes and pedelecs, for example if they do not use their bikes for a long time outside the season and have removed the batteries.
B&W International has now developed the outdoor.case type 6040 with Cirrux® fiberglass inlay - the first case that is also certified for the transport of defective lithium-ion batteries over land, water and in the air* (certificate no. 190313, Belgian Packaging Institute BVI). As the batteries are highly flammable and have explosive properties even when intact, the special case had to pass extensive tests for hazardous goods packaging in order to be certified for the transport of lithium ion batteries including lithium ion polymer batteries according to UN regulation 3480. The case is certified for the transport or storage of two Li-Ion batteries with a capacity of up to 750Wh per battery.
For the outdoor.case type 6040, B&W International uses an adapted Cirrux® fiberglass cushion as an inlay. This special padding material is characterized by the fact that it is neither flammable nor conductive and serves as thermal insulation. The cushion filled with glass fibers is protected against short circuits and is absorbent. Even leaking battery acid has no negative consequences. Since Cirrux® as a cushion is more pressure-elastic than granulates, the material can neither dust nor crumble.
