CREPIM has been developing since 2017 a pole of excellence dedicated to Reaction to fire of lithium-ion batteries. This pole gathers a complete array of expertises focused on abusive tests, leading to potential fire occurrence. Our strategy consists of to be present on the market with to 2 levels of services.
CREPIM has been accredited by COFRAC for his capability to validate lithium-ion batteries performance at different scales (cells, modules, PACKS). Our platform allow us to perform tests for every types of batteries (Stationary, Electric Vehicles, Etc. ) :
CREPIM is completely integrated and skilled to perform a large amount of abusive tests (electric, mechanical, thermal) in order to evaluate the occurrence of inflammation, his seriousness and the propagation mechanisms :
Thanks to his experience on fire batteries, and to his team composed of engineers and technicians, all have specific electrical authorization for batteries, CREPIM is now able to assist in batteries conception (insulation, sealing, materials, cells, etc.). Batteries can be instrumented on -demand to record on-line as much data as possible (Voltage, Temperature, smoke ejection speed, total quantity of smoke ejected, thermal camera). The data are analyzed to understand the default propagation and to set up mitigation scenarios. A post-mortem analysis is also proposed.
We put several cells in a generci module which we brought into thermal runaway. This test allow us to test insulation, seals, cells, etc.).
