30 Nov 2020 The unpredictability of lithium-ion batteries
Just how unpredictable lithium-ion batteries can be was demonstrated by a major fire at a French manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries in early October 2020.
According to the local police, the fire accident occurred during the assembly of lithium batteries. Due to the rapid development of the fire, the building was completely destroyed.
The major fire and the extinguishing work lasted about four hours, but the asecos safety cabinet of the ION-LINE model line, which was only purchased this year, withstood the fire and protected the batteries stored inside from the heat and further ignition inside the cabinet.
This example makes it clear: Unfortunately, accidents cannot always be prevented. However, damage can be significantly minimised or prevented altogether if an appropriate risk assessment has been prepared.

Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG
Measuring experts from Endress+Hauser require the asecos hazardous material work station to manufacture products for the flow rate measurement of fluids, gases and vapours. The employees are pleased with the positive change since the use of the hazardous material work station: the unpleasant smell was considerably reduced.
"And as far as the price is concerned, the purchase was an interesting alternative to a conventional extraction system", says Andreas Suter, who also praises the cooperation with the asecos technicians and the comprehensive 24-hour service that asecos offers for spare parts or repairs.

Aloys F. Dornbracht GmbH & Co. KG
The hazardous material work station at the Dornbracht company makes a substantial contribution to a future-oriented and modular production facility.
“There is no off-the-shelf production equipment or device for this”, as Sonja Tonat emphasizes – and asecos fulfilled the high demands of the quality manufacturer with regard to promptness, availability and requirement-oriented implementation. Breaking through the hall ceiling was to be strictly avoided, for example: This was solved by a specially designed hazardous material work station that can be freely moved within the room.

Municipal Archive Bochum
The municipal archive Bochum acquired an asecos hazardous material work station for restoration work requiring the use of solvents.
Restorer Günter Reimann does not like to look back on the time before the acquisition of the hazardous material work station – because there is so much work that involves the use of chemicals posing a potential health risk. Without the extraction system, highly-flammable dangerous gas-air mixtures that can even damage the brain would possibly remain in the room for a long time. So the hazardous material work station also protects the health of the restorers in Bochum.

CANBERRA develops, produces and sells radiation measurement technology worldwide. The company has installed asecos hazardous material work stations for cleaning work with flammable liquids.
"Not only the bio-monitoring, but also the occupational hygiene measurements were able to prove that the exposure to which the employees are subjected is below the value requiring action, i.e. 10 percent of the limit value applicable in Belgium. Working conditions have noticeably improved", says Steven Majewski looking back on the project with satisfaction.

Landsberg am Lech Prison
Employees at the prison only perform examination of water samples at the asecos hazardous material work station:
"We now have a compact solution ideally tailored to all our needs: A hazardous material work station that reliably extracts all vapours – and there is sufficient lighting, enough sockets, cold and hot water connection", Martin B. praises.

Klinikum Fulda gAG, Pathology
The pathological department of the Klinikum Fulda has decided on the use of asecos hazardous material work stations and hazardous material cabinets for the preparation of tissue samples and for the storage of hazardous material such as xylene and formalin, for example. Prof. Arps particularly praises the technically sophisticated fresh air management, the high level of fire protection (F 90) and the practical folding doors.
All in all we now not only have a highly efficient employee protection system, but also a “high-security, modular overall system that is safe for maintenance and operation”, Prof. Arps explains.

PolyOne Corporation, Gaggenau branch
At the Innovation Center of PolyOne, the experts are experimenting on new plastic highlights for the market. The also unique 360° rental concept from asecos for the storage of flammable hazardous materials is deal for this purpose. The flexibility and reliable automatically scheduled service convinced us to hire a safety storage cabinet.
“This cooperation is running smoothly, and finally, the type and duration of use can only be roughly estimated in advance", states Christian Busch.

Ernst Wenzelmann Schilderfabrik GmbH
The manufacturer of signs uses safety storage cabinets type 90 from asecos for the storage of flammable paints and solvents. Amongst other things, the sign-making factory decided on the asecos cabinets because they are freely movable:
“We then only need a lifting cart to move the asecos hazardous material cabinets. They can be very easily connected to our central extraction system at any other location in the room by means of a spiral duct. This saves us a great deal of effort and also the approval procedures that would become necessary for building a new paint room”, Ernst Ludwig Wenzelmann explains.
