Lead Acid batteries have been a workhorse of industrial society for over 130 years. They have been greatly refined since then, but one problem remains: SULPHATION. The very nature of the electro chemical reaction that occurs between the lead plates and sulphuric acid to generate electricity generates lead sulphate. Over time, this buildup of lead sulphate crystals on the lead acid plates does all of the following:
The combination of these factors reduces the lifespan of modern lead avid batteries dramatically. Despite significant improvements in battery design and construction, lead acid batteries of all kinds still fail prematurely. Until PulseTech.
PulseTech Battery Maintenance Systems utilize a patented electronic waveform with exact amplitude and duration to remove lead sulphate from battery plates. It does this by gently vibrating the sulfur atoms electronically, breaking the bonding of the lead sulphate crystals, and redissolving the sulfur into the sulphuric acid electrolyte. Application of PulseTech systems will provide:
Our units come in a wide range of configurations. We have our standard PowerPulses, which desulphate the battery and are powered by the battery. They are available in 12, 24, 36 and 48 volt inputs. We have SolarChargers, which desulphate and charge while there is normal sunlight. These come in 2, 5, 6 and 25 watt power outputs. Our Xtreme Chargers come in 1 or 2 battery arrangements, with rated power at 1 to 2 amps, with an effective output of 5 amps when compared to other smart chargers when the desulphation component is factored in. Our Pro12 maintenance charger trickle charges and desulphates up to 12 batteries at a time, making it a must for retail stores selling new batteries or for seasonal equipment storage. We also have military grade chargers that can do single batteries at a very high desulphation level while applying up to 20 amps of charge, or our Shop Xtreme Charger that will desulphate and charge up to 12 batteries at 8 amps output for each battery simultaneously.
To complete our lineup, we have several battery testers, from a simple LED voltmeter/alternator tester, to a full conductive tester that will interface with your computer via USB and provide a printout of each battery you test, its serial number and condition.
