In a processing of immersing substrates in a chemical solution, and agitating the chemical solution by as bubbles or liquid, the gas bubbles or liquid is supplied so as to bring about alternate occurrence of a first state and a second state. The first state is a state in which an amount of the gas bubbles or the liquid supplied to first side in one direction of each substrate is greater than an amount of the gas bubbles or the liquid supplied to a second side in the one direction of the substrate. The second state is a state in which the amount of the gas bubbles or the liquid supplied to the first side in the one direction of the substrate is smaller than the amount of the gas bubbles or the liquid supplied to the second side in the one direction of the substrate.


A prismatic secondary battery includes a prismatic hollow outer body having a mouth and a bottom; a flat electrode assembly, a positive electrode collector, a negative electrode collector, and an electrolyte, all of which are stored in the prismatic outer body; a sealing plate sealing up the mouth of the prismatic outer body; and a positive electrode terminal attached to the sealing plate in an electrically insulated manner. The sealing plate includes a gas release valve and an electrolyte pour hole and further includes, on the front face, a concaved flat face having an identification code. With the prismatic secondary battery of the invention, a jig for assembly or the like is unlikely to come into contact with the identification code during an assembly process of the prismatic secondary battery, hence the identification code is unlikely to be abraded, and the traceability is unlikely to be lost.


A rechargeable battery system includes: a first battery pack; and a second battery pack in a daisy chain connection with the first battery pack to form a communication path, the second battery pack consuming a larger power for communication than a power consumed in the first battery pack for communication. A power consumed in the second battery pack for an additional process other than communication is smaller than power consumed in the first battery pack for the additional process.

A rechargeable battery management unit (controller) controls a plurality of battery packs. A communication path connects the rechargeable battery management unit and the plurality of battery packs in a daisy chain for packet communication and representing a ring topology. The rechargeable battery management unit sends a fixed-length packet divided into segments so as to flow in one direction on the management data communication path, the number of segments being equal to or more than the number of battery packs. Each of the plurality of battery packs stores data related to the battery pack in a segment assigned to the battery pack in the fixed-length packet received from a battery pack preceding in the management data communication path and sends the fixed-length packet to a succeeding battery pack.

An insulation sheet is disposed between a rectangular housing and an electrode body. A first side wall of the insulation sheet is disposed between a large-area side surface of the rectangular housing and the electrode body. The first side wall includes a first folded portion that is folded along an edge of the first side wall near a sealing plate. The first folded portion extends from an edge of the first side wall near the sealing plate toward a bottom surface of the rectangular housing and is disposed between the large-area side surface and the electrode body in such a way that the first folded portion overlaps the first side wall.
