Grid-scale battery energy storage systems (BESSs) store excess energy generated by renewable sources such as wind and solar. They allow batteries to be charged during times of low electricity usage and store the energy, ready for release during peak times or to cover periods when renewable sources such as wind and sun cannot meet demand.
One of the greater risks of BESS containers is thermal runaway caused by battery malfunction. A range of safety features and systems are used to mitigate this risk. One of the last lines of defense is to limit and control the damaging impact of a thermal runaway event.
At OsecoElfab, we understand the importance of safety in energy storage systems. Our rupture discs and explosion vents protect against the worst-case scenario of a catastrophic explosion by reliably venting excess heat and pressure in a controlled manner. Our product range covers the standard industry pressures, sizes, and materials as well as custom designs specific to your enclosure.
By incorporating safety features such as rupture discs and explosion vents into your BESS system, you can mitigate the risks associated with thermal runaway and ensure safe, reliable energy storage. Contact us today to learn more about how our products can help improve the safety and efficiency of your energy storage system.
