Got Battery Problems? Solving Battery Sulfation Issues

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

In 1984, Power Products Inc. began a longstanding relationship with our US Military, designing and manufacturing charging, analyzing, and battery maintenance systems. Power Products chargers and analyzers are in every aircraft carrier in the US fleet.

In 2006, PPI worked with military battery personnel to solve an endemic sulfation problem with their ground support motive batteries. The developed solution was a method consisting of very high current pulses at a low frequency that effectively and rapidly removed crystallized sulfation. Units were manufactured by Power Products and recovered over 85% of batteries, whereas previous recovery rates with traditional equipment were about 10%. The results were that their ‘environmental stations’ (also known as the battery junk pile) were rapidly depleted. Power Products then, as now, has outfitted the US military with ‘conditioner units’ which have once and for all solved their sulfation problems. Power Product’s units have a NATO/National Stock Number and are listed in the Military Battery Manual.

In today’s economic environment emphasizing on saving energy and maximizing our renewable energy sources, Power Products has introduced an expanded industrial version of the military battery recovery unit. This version is the Dynapulse248. This unit desulfates and charges batteries that range from 2 volt single cells up to large 48 volt motive batteries, while still using the portable 115V/230V plug-in convenience. As in the military unit, emphasis is always on the durability, reliability, safety, and of course performance. The Dynapulse248 now brings the same history, patent-pending technology, and success of the military unit to the industrial and commercial sectors of the world.

The Dynapulse unit is designed as a stand-alone desulfating conditioner and charger, or can be combined simultaneously with the end user’s conventional battery charger. This combination combines the high-pulse recovery technology of the Dynapulse with the additional DC power capability of a conventional 3-phase station charger for even faster recovery.
