Lindner monitors overheating batteries to keep recyclers safe • Recycling International


Batteries are ever-present for recyclers, although processing them can cause a range of problems including fires. Austrian firm Lindner Recyclingtech has developed a solution.

‘The worst-case scenario is for a damaged battery to end up in the fuel storage bunker, where it could cause a devastating fire,’ Lindner declares. Even if the battery burns itself out and doesn’t cause an explosion, the resulting temperatures are an enormous problem due to the fuel’s ignition point of 319 – 460 C.

That’s why Lindner’s innovative Fire Prevention System features optical sensors that constantly monitor the temperature on conveyor belts and automatically trigger a water sprinkling system to cool overheated particles in the material stream.
