Clean Rooms / Dry Rooms / Cold Rooms

Gigafactories are large-scale manufacturing facilities that produce batteries for electric vehicles. It is named gigafactory for both its enormous size and the gigawatt-hours of energy the batteries produce. A typical gigafactory has about 5 million square feet of operational space, equivalent to ± 92 football fields.

We work closely with our clients to ensure that the gigafactory cleanroom design meets their specific requirements, whether it’s for a single room or an entire facility. We use state-of-the-art equipment and materials to ensure that our gigafactory cleanrooms meet the exact specifications for cleanliness, humidity, temperature, and air exchange, ensuring that your gigafactory controlled environment remains stable, consistent, and operating at full capacity.

Clean Rooms for Battery Production

Gigafactory cleanrooms are specialized, controlled environments that ensure optimal production conditions for high-tech manufacturing processes such as electric vehicle batteries and semiconductors.

The gigafactory market is currently experiencing rapid growth due to the increasing demand for electric vehicles, sustainable energy solutions, and advanced battery technologies worldwide. Controlled environments for gigafactories require extremely low humidity levels designed to ensure precise and safe manufacturing conditions for sensitive components like lithium-ion batteries. In gigafactories, manufacturers must maintain ultra-high levels of cleanliness to prevent contamination of the products being produced. To achieve this, gigafactory cleanrooms and dryrooms use specialized air filtration systems, impressive temperature and humidity controls, and stringent safety protocols. Gigafactories also play a role in promoting sustainable practices, with heightened focus on energy efficiency, waste management, and the optimization of natural resources.

Cold Rooms for Battery Production

CCC constructs custom battery production cold room environments that meet the specifications for safety and compliance.

Battery Production Cold Rooms, such as a vehicle test tunnel, are spaces where the temperature of the manufacturing process is controlled and simulates certain climatic conditions. These spaces allow for extremely finite measurements and are instrumental for developing innovations in electric vehicle safety, fuel efficiency, and aerodynamics. Cold rooms play a critical role in battery production, ensuring that the materials and finished products are manufactured and stored at the correct temperatures, which is essential for the quality and performance of the batteries.

  • Temperature control: Many battery manufacturing processes require precise temperature control to ensure that the materials are produced correctly. Cold rooms are used to maintain a specific temperature range, which is critical for the quality and consistency of battery production.
  • Storage: Some battery materials, such as electrolytes, need to be stored at specific temperatures to prevent degradation or evaporation. Cold rooms are used to store these materials before they are used in the manufacturing process.
  • Safety: Certain battery materials can be hazardous, and cold rooms can be used to store these materials safely. For example, lithium-ion batteries are known to catch fire if they are exposed to high temperatures, so cold rooms can be used to store them safely.
  • Testing: Cold rooms can also be used for testing batteries at different temperatures to evaluate their performance in extreme conditions. This is particularly important for batteries used in harsh environments, such as electric vehicles, where the battery must function properly at extreme temperatures.

Dry Rooms for Battery Production

CCC constructed humidity controlled dry rooms adhere to strict specifications for quality, consistency, and safety of the battery product.

Battery production dry rooms prevent moisture from interfering with the production of batteries, which can lead to defective batteries and reduced overall product quality. Moisture can also corrode the electrodes, resulting in lower battery performance and a shorter lifespan. Our battery production dry rooms are equipped with air conditioning and dehumidification systems to maintain the desired level of humidity. The environment is also designed to be contaminant free, as even small amounts of particulate can negatively impact battery production.

  • Moisture control: Batteries contain various materials that can be affected by humidity, such as electrolytes and separators. High humidity levels can cause these materials to absorb moisture, which can change their chemical properties and affect battery performance.
  • Safety: Certain battery materials can react with water or moisture, causing corrosion, degradation, or even dangerous chemical reactions. Humidity control can prevent these reactions from occurring, ensuring the safety of workers and the environment.
  • Consistency: Humidity control is critical for maintaining consistency in the battery production process. Variations in humidity can affect the physical and chemical properties of the battery materials, leading to inconsistencies in the final product.
  • Quality control: Proper humidity control is necessary for ensuring the quality of the finished battery product. High humidity levels can lead to defects in the battery, such as short circuits or electrolyte leakage, which can affect the battery’s performance and reliability.

CCC custom builds clean rooms, cold rooms and dry rooms for battery manufacturing, from concept to certification, ensuring the appropriate levels of humidity and cleanliness control for reliable and safe battery production.
