Extend Your Industrial Battery Life with Single Point Watering Systems

By: Eastern Lift Truck Co., Inc. July 10, 2019
Tags:
  • Improving safety and environmental cleanliness
  • Protecting your employees from contact with battery acid
  • Filling to correct heights to prevent acid boil over and lost capacity
  • Simple to Use: Operator makes a hose connection, opens a valve, and in 15 seconds or less the entire battery is watered – Filling every cell to the same accurate level each time
  • System saves money in two ways: Cuts labor time, costs and extends battery life by filling batteries to the proper levels every time

Recommendations:

  • Make sure that your input/operating water pressure is within the specified psi for the watering system (normally low pressure watering systems are the way to go)
  • Individuals should still wear safety goggles and gloves while operating the watering system
  • Add a blinkie light to warn you if water is needed

Without a watering system, lost time and hazardous situations could arise.
