A Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) battery is simply a lead acid battery in which the electrolyte has been immobilised in order to recombine hydrogen and oxygen. It has a sealed construction with pressure release valves to prevent gases from escaping…
Tubular Gel Valve Regulated lead Acid Battery are lead acid batteries with tubular positive plates for cyclic applications and it is sealed for its service life and are maintenance free. The Gel is manufactured in a secret recipe with German technology, where the electrolyte is jellified in a fumed silica base.
A battery is an electrochemical device which stores energy in a chemically bonded structure and releases the energy in the form of electrons resulting from the battery’s chemical discharge reactions. Charging the battery provides the electrons to reform the chemical bonds which are stored in the battery’s active materials.
A Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) battery differs from a vented battery in that it is sealed using a pressure relief valve which prevents the gases produced on charging from escaping. Keeping the gases in facilitates their recombination to re-form water which is lost on charging due to electrolysis. In order to ensure that the oxygen and hydrogen…
The British company Chloride introduced in the 60es the so-called High performance Plantè battery followed by the other European companies. In Germany the type was called GroE. The cell was characterized by still the Plantè plate for the positive, but a flat plate with a PbSb alloy for the negative. The strap and the pillars were also made in a PbSb alloy.
An overview of characteristics, manufacture & test methods.
PVC battery separators are microporous diaphragms placed between the negative and positive plates of lead acid batteries to prevent any contact between them to avoid internal short circuit but at the same time allow free circulation of the electrolyte.
n the following sections I will be listing the most common applications and examining the most useful leisure battery characteristics to look for. These will be compared with the Microtex Golf cart battery products and their unique construction and design features to see how well they cover the application requirements.
