Redflow ZBM (Zinc Bromide Module)

ZBM2

WHAT IS A FLOW BATTERY AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Each battery contains about 100 litres of a water-based zinc bromide salt solution that circulates in two separate hydraulic circuits. When charging, zinc is extracted from the zinc bromide solution and stored on a plastic membrane. During discharge, zinc is released back to the solution. A major benefit of this process is that it causes no degradation to the battery when the zinc is removed at the end of each cycle, giving it a sustained, long-life energy storage capacity.

REDFLOW BATTERIES REDEFINE YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF HOW A BATTERY WORKS

  • Redflow batteries deliver 100 per cent cycle depth of discharge without causing any damage to the battery
  • Redflow batteries retain their full energy storage capacity throughout their expected life, unlike legacy battery types which lose considerable storage capacity with age
  • Redflow batteries require no reserved capacity, unlike legacy battery types that must reserve a significant portion of their storage capacity to prevent damage to the battery. Therefore with Redflow batteries there is no over-sizing required
  • Redflow batteries present no fire risk: Their bromide-based electrolyte is a natural fire retardant while mechanical damage does not risk explosion or ‘thermal runaway’
  • Redflow batteries can operate at ambient temperatures as hot as 50°C without active cooling
  • Redflow batteries offer unlimited shelf life: You can switch off a Redflow battery at any state of charge, hibernate it for extended periods of time, and then access its stored energy within 60 seconds
  • Redflow batteries have a great recycling story as they are made from components that are easy to recycle or reuse
  • Redflow batteries are designed and developed in Australia and available globally through a scalable manufacturing partnership with Flex in North America.
