Ensuring Lead-Acid Battery Performance with Pulse Technology 2003-01-3417

Basic lead-acid battery technology has remained virtually unchanged for almost 100 years. Although improvements have been made in chemistry and construction, the common causes that promote battery failure have remained the same. These causes are the result of sulfation buildup on the battery plates. The most effective solution to this problem has proven to be pulse technology.
Pulse technology helps eliminate battery failure in the following ways:
  • Prevents sulfation buildup.
  • Prevents physical degradation of the battery plates.
  • Increases battery service life dramatically
As a result, productivity is improved, replacement and other battery-related expenses are avoided, and unnecessary negative environmental impact is averted.
