Watering System For Flooded Batteries

Posted on March 26, 2013

Trojan Battery Co. has developed a single-point battery watering system for its line of flooded batteries for backup power and renewable energy applications.  The new watering system is designed to make maintenance of Trojan’s deep-cycle flooded batteries faster, easier and safer.

The single-point watering kit incorporates a flexible tube routing that allows the watering system to work with various battery bank sizes and configurations while an automatic valve shut-off controls the electrolyte level within each cell and prevents overwatering, the company said.  In addition, the kit enables users to fill their deep-cycle batteries without having to remove the vent covers, which Trojan said is an important safety feature which reduces the chance for contact with the battery’s electrolyte. According to the company, the kit enables a set of batteries to be effectively filled in 30 seconds.

The single-point watering kit comes in three configurations to fit 12, 24 and 48 V batteries. The kits are designed for single string installations with Trojan Premium, Industrial and Signature lines of flooded batteries. For systems with multiple strings in parallel, additional kits can be added at the required system voltage, the company said.
