Portability and the necessity to use tools more and more performant, have placed increasing emphasis on autonomy in recent years, working on achieving a service range increasingly higher. This was translated into the need of batteries with longer operation time, with a gauge as low as possible and shorter loading cycle. To the utmost extent the "targets" imagined by the designers were achieved and with the advent of the latest equipment for batteries regeneration,the lifespan of accumulators has come most often to be doubled.
Now, after about 2-3 years of usage, the performance of batteries starts to visible diminish, and this can be easily noticed by the fact that the battery must be recharged increasingly more often, its time of service reduces in time.
Battery regeneration means the recovery process of the functionalityof a battery, in a non-invasive way to a state as close as possible to original, considered to be the state in which the battery had an efficiency value which reached maximum performance. Experience showed us that by regeneration, restoring the battery in terms of functionality was achieved in 95%, where there were no obvious mechanical defects, construction flaws, problems while operating or improper storage.
"Along with the development of technology, electronics and with increased possibility of controlling the actuators, and processes with high speed and accuracy, the regeneration process of lead-acid batteriesbeganto be achieved with an extraordinary good efficiency. The procedures, principles used in the regeneration process are secure, recognized, non-invasive and consist of applying an electronic "recipe" specific to our own equipment. The impact on functionality and also the feedback from customers is positive and the obtained yield has the highest value compared to the same services offered by the competitors. "
Sulfation is the slow chemical process by which on the surface of electrodes is formed an oxide layer, which has the effect of reducing up to extinction of thebattery functionality due to the isolator effect of the oxide layer.
The desulfation process using the electronic method, non-invasive, available on market for a short time, emerged practically with the possibility of rigorous control the loading, monitoring, handling parameter, control performed only by the latest generation electronic devices. The alternative to this process, but with a much lower yield and harmful for both organism and for the environment, is the regeneration using electrochemical process based in part on a mechanical intervention on the battery.
- Very little recovery time (3-5 days)
- Almost no human intervention leads to a low cost price of regeneration, impossibility of faults due to the human factor throughout the process.
- Expanding the capacity of the battery by up to 100%
- Batteries are composed of two electrodes, namely the anode (made of powdered lead oxide PbO2) and cathode (made of plumbumPb), immersed in an acidic environment (usually sulfuric acid H2SO4) in liquid or gel.
- The process of desulfation consists of applying currents whose frequency, intensity and amplitude varies,rigorous following a logic program driven by an electronic device used for regeneration of the two electrodes, different algorithms from case to case, depending on the degree of impairment and theconstruction characteristics of the battery.
The regeneration process of the battery is the only technical solution of extending the lifespan of the battery, with a very attractive efficiency, both in terms of logistics and economics.
Thanks to the recent technological progress, most various opportunities have begun to generate the interest of administrations from the industrial area, of the services, where the financial contribution to ensure a good functionality is huge.
