Next Generation Batteries

Flooded lead acid batteries in motive power applications require watering to maintain an electrolyte level which keeps the active plate material submerged. As a battery is cycled water is lost from its electrolyte solution through evaporation and electrolysis. This loss of water from the solution necessitates regular watering maintenance schedules to maintain an adequate level for plates to remain submerged.

Single point watering systems have become the norm in flooded applications thanks to reducing maintenance time spent watering batteries dramatically. Although they have reduced the time required to water batteries, they have done little to prevent batteries from being watered in a discharged state. This leads to overflow of electrolyte during subsequent recharge.

Electrolyte overflows result in numerous difficulties for an operation. There is loss of acid from the battery itself, leading to reduced battery capacity. It also results in damage to the battery tray caused by the corrosive electrolyte. In many cases it can even lead to corrosive damage to the vehicle or warehouse floor, and exposes vehicle operators to greater risk of exposure to acid themselves.

Protector batteries unique overflow resistant watering configuration dramatically reduces the risk of battery overflow. The added electrolyte growth reservoirs provides room within the cell for the volume increase that occurs during a charging event to avoid overflowing the battery, even if water is added at the wrong time. With Protector batteries you defend the battery, the vehicle, the floor, and your vehicle operators from corrosive battery electrolyte.
