Philadelphia Scientific Introduces New, Dual Cartridge Deionizer System for Watering Industrial Batteries
Philadelphia Scientific, a leading international manufacturer of industrial battery components, accessories and tools, has introduced its new Dual Cartridge HydroPure™ Deionizer System for use in watering industrial batteries. The system holds two 600-gallon-capacity deionizing cartridges – twice the capacity of Philadelphia Scientific’s popular HydroPure Deionizer. A control valve on the unit allows for series or parallel use of the system. In series use, one cartridge can be used at a time at a flow of ½ gallon per minute. In parallel use, both cartridges can be used at the same time at a flow of one gallon per minute.
Battery water should be free from metallic impurities because they can affect cell voltages and increase self discharge. Calcium and magnesium found in hard water cannot be removed by conventional filters, and the results of such impurities in industrial batteries are unreliable performance, shortened battery run time and reduced battery life. The traditional method to avoid water impurities is to use distilled water, an expensive and inconvenient proposition. Using deionized water is a simple and effective way to maximize battery life.
The Dual Cartridge Deionizer is pressurized and can be used directly with battery watering guns such as the Philadelphia Scientific Battery Watering Gun. The Deionizer is battery powered, providing convenience and flexibility when installing the system in a warehouse environment. Two D-cell batteries, which are included with the Deionizer, will last for about 2 years. The system is equipped with a purity light, which flashes green when the Deionizer cartridges are of sufficient purity and red when the cartridges need to be replaced. When the light is not illuminated, it is an indication that the batteries should be replaced or that there is a power problem.
Replacement cartridges are available and can be installed in seconds without any tools. Exhausted cartridges are nontoxic and can be safely disposed of.
