How does Battery Equaliser™ work?

Battery Equaliser is the solution by addressing main problemsOur Battery Equaliser™ is easy to use, simply detach the battery lid and add the liquid formula to each cell. The Equaliser works when the battery is being charged, and during normal battery operation, so you can add it and forget it. The Battery Equaliser™ addresses several problems encountered during the charging process:

Gassing increases as the charge process

Toward the end of the charging cycle the cell can no longer absorb all the energy from the charging current, this excess energy* is then used exclusively in the electrolysis process, causing the breakdown of water into its component elements in their gaseous state – Oxygen is released at the positive terminal, and highly volatile Hydrogen gas at the negative terminal. This process is first encountered as the cell voltage approaches 2.15-.2.2 volts and increases proportional to battery charge time. At full battery charge the amount of liberated Hydrogen is equal to approximately 13ft (one cubic foot) per cell, per 63 Ah.

*Minus resistance loss.

Mossing – risk of short-circuiting

Mossing is term used to describe the sponge-like lead deposit found on the batteries negative plates. Frequently seen after the gassing process, mossing has the potential to:

  • Clog your batteries porous cell dividers
  • Settle at the base of cells
  • Adhere to battery terminals (positive and negative)

Once the lead accumulates to any appreciable amount around the battery terminals, the potential for bridging and short-circuiting becomes a significant risk.

Sediments – unnecessary consumption of current

Through our years of experience we have learnt to identify that poorly serviced batteries or batteries pushed beyond their recommended limit, all tend to exhibit similar symptoms; they shed vast volumes of red-oxide sediment, and frequently burst at their retaining tubes. Batteries that are regularly undercharged also produce sediment, inhibiting full-charge potential and unnecessarily consuming current.

How these problems are addressed?

Our Battery Equaliser™ formula introduces chemicals which increase paste cohesion, thus reducing sedimentation and fall-out. By producing a more even flow of current and preventing current spiking, we are able to drastically reduce the rate of sulphation. Through the addition of our Battery Equaliser™ formula we create an effective voltage-gate for gas release, thus reducing amount of volatile gas released.

The separator.

When the battery cells begin to fail, one of the first symptoms is heat transfer. Most micro-porous separators begin to close at 40°C forcing the current to find a new path of least resistance (frequently the exposed plate-grids and connecting straps). If the pores remain closed the battery temperature will continue to rise without introducing new charge.

If a battery is used correctly and within its specifications it can has an indefinite lifespan, however over time as a result of partial migration the separator can become clogged. It does have a limiting lifespan and our Battery Equaliser™ addresses this by clearing the separator contributing to longer battery life and therefore reducing premature battery dumping by a huge percentage over the years to come. As well as saving the consumer’s wallet.
