You need a string parser - the best one by far that I have seen is Jeff Moden's code here: Copy the code from Figure 21 in his article to an SSMS query window, and run it - which will install the function. Then use it like this:
	d.Item as BatchNum
	YourTable t
	cross apply
	( select * from  dbo.DelimitedSplit8K( t.BatchNum,'/')) d
order by
	id, ItemNumber;
