Sulphate build-up occurs in the form of lead sulphate crystals on the battery plates during the normal charge/discharge cycles. During this process, some of the sulphates enlarge to the point where they can't accept energy so they stay on the plate. Over time these sulphate crystals can build-up until efficiency is reduced and the battery dies. This process is the main reason for over 80% of all battery problems and failures.
Lead sulphate is a natural by-product of battery operation and if not treated, it will slowly and continuously reduce battery capacity, increase electrical resistance, reduce the operating voltage, and ultimately cause the battery to fail.
Does "pulse" and "equalization" charging really help?
Standard "pulse" or "equalization charging" technologies used in all other reconditioning devices work on one of the following principals: in "pulse" technology high-tension current impulses are produced at infrequent intervals of time during charging process and in "equalization charging" technology peak charging voltage is simply raised.
Battery users believe they can reverse sulphate build-up by "pulse" or "equalization" charging. It is possible that, depending on crystal particle size, some of lead sulphate is converted to sulphuric acid, but probably most of the "benefit" comes from the physical separation of the crystalline coating due to the vigorous gassing which occurs at such elevated voltages. Fresh plate surface is exposed at the expense of losing active material which simply falls to the bottom of the cell. Battery temperature increases dramatically during equalization charging. During pulse charging plates are getting stressed and as the result they can simply be ripped apart by high-tension current impulses. The higher charging temperature increases positive grid corrosion, water loss through gassing (the electrical conversion of water to hydrogen and oxygen, which can re-combine violently causing an explosion), and sulphuric acid "misting" which, in turn, causes terminal corrosion. All of these phenomena reduce battery life significantly.
New "battery power" technology
The type of charging units commonly spread today is limited to only units that will charge your battery up. While you use your battery the only thing you do to keep it running is discharging it and charging it up again and this process leads to sulphate building up on the battery plates, there is a third component to the process which will help you use your battery longer and make it more efficient so you will be better off financially and the world will be better off in terms of the cleaner environment. The third part to this process is preventative maintenance, rejuvenation, restoration & reanimation devices which help us to break up these sulphate crystals and transform them back into active lead mass on the plates enabling superior performance and longevity for your batteries.
The technology "Battery Power" possesses was developed in theory in year 2000; in 2002 this technology was patented and implemented in real life. The technology is called “Resonance-Ionic”, it doesn’t have analogues in the world and it is protected by international patents.
Our equipment is specifically designed and build based on this unique technology and it allows us to resolve almost any battery problems you might experience including shorted cells and even reversed polarity. If the battery is diagnosed with the short circuited plates it means there is an oversized sulphate build-up which creates a bridge between plates causing the cell to short circuit. This bridge is removed by our equipment during the restoration process and sulphate crystals are transformed back into active lead mass and the battery will be restored.
Standard "pulse" or "equalization" charging technologies used in all other reconditioning devices will not help in such cases and will not give such high quality results, it will only give your battery a short term boost and will damage the plates which will lead to a rather fast death of the battery. At "Battery Power" we can achieve high quality restoration results enabling superior performance and longevity of your batteries, increasing charge holding capacity close to its factory state and also increasing the lifespan of your batteries up to 4 times.
We are able to do preventative maintenance, full recovery, restore & rejuvenate and even reanimate your lead acid & gel, starting, traction & stationary, heavy duty & deep cycle, marine & automotive batteries, powerful battery banks. Sulphate build-up process can also be prevented if preventative maintenance & restoration equipment is used on the regular basis which allows you to use the batteries at its maximum efficiency during their lifespan. By eliminating or reversing sulphate with “Battery Power” technology, thousands of dollars can be saved in electrical system maintenance, battery replacement and energy costs, as well as the amount of working capital tied up in batteries. Moreover, staff and equipment productivity can improve dramatically.
The only batteries that are not suitable for recovery are the batteries that have worked out its natural resource where the plates are deteriorated and the batteries that have internal or external mechanical damage.
Idea behind our technology
The idea behind our technology is that very fast impulses are created by the special device; the speed of the impulses is measured in nanoseconds (very very small periods of time) that allows the device to use 1000A currents to charge the batteries. The technology is called "Resonance-Ionic" for a reason; the impulses generated by the device are in the same frequency as lead sulphate crystals which allows us to break down these crystals very effectively without damaging the battery plates orlosing active crystalline material; then the "ionic" part kicks in, ionic current generated by the device creates a reaction which transforms broken down sulphate crystals into an active lead mass.
As a result:
▪ Sulphate crystals are transformed back into an active lead mass on the plates;
▪ Carbon is removed from the plates and dissolved in the acid;
▪ The efficiency of the normal charging process is increased (less power and time required to charge the battery after it’s been serviced)
