Lithium is mainly destined for the fast-growing lithium-ion battery market, which is driven by the increasing demand for electric vehicles and energy storage worldwide. The lithium containing brine is pumped into evaporation ponds, concentrated, and then purified on its way through the system. The brine is pumped through a cascade of ponds where impurities or by-products are crystallized and removed. Lithium hydroxide is a compound formed of the white, soft metal lithium bound to a hydroxide group with the formula LiOH. Though it is a hygroscopic chemical by nature that is also sold in monohydrate form as LiOH H2O. The compound is used in a variety of industries with popular commercial demands for it in the manufacture of lithium batteries and as lithium hydroxide monohydrate to make lubricating greases. The plug flow of the Tema fluid bed dryer, allows first-in, first-out drying of Lithium products and well-mixed fluidization, which covers the entire spectrum and is able to accurately control the spread of residence time.
