Thermal Battery Covers

Thermal batteries are primary components that use molten salts as electrolytes and employ an internal heat source to bring the battery stack to operating temperature when required. These inert power sources are designed with reliability and shelf storage in mind. Often used in demanding defense applications in harsh environmental conditions, these batteries must be reliably sealed to enable optimal performance on a moment’s notice. SCHOTT thermal battery covers provide unparalleled protection using hermetic glass-to-metal sealing technology to support uncompromised gas-tight durability of reliability-critical battery assemblies.

Applying decades of knowledge and expertise in glass manufacturing and sealing processes, SCHOTT utilizes a mix of carefully selected glass and metal materials to create a hermetic seal of the battery terminal feedthroughs and provide protection for the thermal batteries. Although the battery chemistry is made of extremely aggressive substances such as lithium and lithium thionyl chloride, these batteries can be reliably encapsulated for long periods due to the use of materials which are highly resistant to corrosion and chemicals.

SCHOTT glass-to-metal sealed feedthroughs support the functionality of thermal batteries by providing protection to help conduct power efficiently in their operation.
