Additional systems for traction batteries
Electrolyte Stirring System (ESS) and Battery Filling System (BFS) extend battery life, significantly reduce its operating costs and increase availability. These systems are indispensable battery equipment when using large fleets of powered industrial trucks. All of PzS and PzB traction cells (wet lead-acid cells) manufactured by BATER have the possibility of mounting both systems.
Battery Filling System (BFS)
- plugs with a floats have a valve carrying gases away from the cell (placed in each cell),
- flexible PVC pipe system connecting all battery cells,
- single-point (central) quick coupler of the system triggering BFS to a certain level in all cells
Advantages of BFS
- reduction of servicing time,
- increasing the availability of a battery,
- reduction of the cost of battery maintenance,
- extending battery life,
- elimination of water spilling into the cell and a battery tray,
- rapid diagnosis of battery electrolyte level,
- limiting the possibility of electrolyte leakage into the tray,
- elimination of the source of to a certain level battery tray corrosion.
ESS Electrolyte Stirring System
ESS (Electrolyte Stirring System) extends battery life, significantly reduces operating costs and increases its availability. All of PzS and PzB traction cells (wet lead acid cells) manufactured by BATER have the possibility of mounting ESS. Mixing electrolyte in the cells is enforced by admission of air flow to the bottom of the cells. Air flow, powered by a pneumatic pump placed in rectifier, gets to every battery cell through the system of flexible pipes.
- central connection via power plug
- air supply to every cell by a system of flexible PVC pipes.
Advantages of ESS system
- shortening charging time up to 30%,
- increasing charging efficiency,
- increasing the availability of battery,
- extending the battery life,
- reduction of operating costs,
- reduction of water consumption,
- reduction of operational requirements,
- reduction of charging factor,
- reduction of charging temperature and gas emission.
