Delivering the next generation of energetic materials, components, batteries and systems to the world.
SafetyA unique design makes PATHION systems the only advanced battery products to intrinsically prevent thermal runaway. When combined with PATHION’s patented fault isolation and cell-level monitoring technologies, the result is the world’s safest advanced energy storage system.
ValuePATHION energy storage systems offer unmatched quality and performance at dramatically lower lifetime costs than competing systems. Only PATHION systems are designed to ensure a reliable return on investment even in today’s rapidly evolving energy storage market.
EfficiencyReal-time system usage, status, and environmental conditions can all affect energy storage system operation, meaning that typical systems are almost never truly optimized. A patented electrical design allows PATHION to flex in real time to ensure systems operate at peak efficiency.
LiRAP™This patented new electrolyte material (Lithium ion Rich Anti-Perovskite or LiRAP™) lends itself specifically to high performance storage architectures designed around new age, well matched, rate limited anodes and cathodes coated by an ultra-thin layer of PATHION electrolyte.
In terms of safety, LiRAP (a solid) prevents swelling, out-gassing, and the growth of dendrites between cathodes and anodes. These three conditions represent the primary root-cause failure modes of today’s liquid electrolyte-based Lithium Ion batteries. Such liquids are prone to overheating and combustion – properties that limit the use of the most promising Lithium Ion and other new battery chemistries.
Higher Ionic Conductivity
LiRAP provides improvement in energy density and power as a function of its higher ionic conductivity. The more conductive the electrolyte, the greater the number of ions that cross over to create charge. Prototyping of LiRAP has yielded results at 10¯3 siemens – approximately two orders of magnitude better than today’s competing solid state electrolytes.
The Power Core propulsion system is a combination of UltraJet drives which propel the boat from the Power Core energy system and the Power core large scale advanced lithium-ion battery modules. Operating at high charge and discharge rates, the Power Core energy system works seamlessly with hybrid traditional diesel engines which are capable of charging the system while underway.
This system is also capable of supporting shore power needs as a floating portable power station when anchored. The current 70 foot vessel can produce 480 kWh of power and for an external source can produce 480 volts of 3 phase power making the vessel an ideal source of power for emergency services or in the event of a natural disaster.
PATHION Marine Power Core propulsion system and PATHION Marine Power Core lithium-ion battery modules deliver sustainable and clean energy for marine applications. Delivering up to 50 nautical miles on a single charge from the Power Core lithium-ion battery modules. For use as shore power, a 80% reduction in consumption of fossil fuel is achieved. Available in configurations ranging from 20 foot rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) to displacement vessels over 500 feet .
