|You're Looking at the Problem
average life of a liquid filled battery, depending on usage, is 6 to 48-months. According
to a recent study, only 30% of all batteries actually reach the 48-month point.
Sulfation buildup occurs as lead sulphates form on the battery
plates during the normal charge and discharge cycles. During this process, some of the
sulphates enlarge to the point where they can't electrochemically react so they stay on
the plate. Over time these sulphates 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
failure. It is a natural by-product of battery operation, and sooner or later it will kill
your battery. This is especially true for infrequently-used and stored batteries, but it
is also a major problem for frequently-used batteries.
Undercharging and Overcharging
If the battery is not completely recharged after each use, sulfation buildup
increases slightly with each charge/load cycle and impedes the battery's ability to be
charged and to deliver power. If the battery is overcharged, the battery will heat,
causing excessive thermal expansion and contraction of the battery plates as well as
excessive shedding of the plate material. This unnecessary stress to the battery's plate
structure causes it to fail prematurely. Radiant charging incorporates several
innovative design technologies which minimize both undercharging and overcharging
recently finished the product development and extensive testing of several new solid-state
battery charging systems. These radiant chargers have been designed for a wide range
of batteries from small 12V starter batteries to large, heavy-duty traction batteries such
as those used in golf carts and electric forklifts. The batteries charged with these
systems show consistently higher capacity levels than those charged with conventional
constant current, constant voltage, or pulsed charging techniques. This is
accomplished through a specially designed desulfating process that naturally occurs during
the radiant charging process.
Although there are many different pulse charging systems on the
market, all of which claim to provide a better and deeper charge, they still cannot
compare to the new radiant charge. The radiant charge can, in many cases,
effectively bring back an unchargeable battery, in a highly sulfated condition, to a near
new condition. (In some cases radiantly charged batteries have even shown capacities
higher than they had when they were new.)
A battery plate with good conductivity can be maintained at its
optimal performance level with regular use of the radiant charger. In addition to
achieving higher energy storage capacities, longer battery lifetimes can be expected when
using the radiant charging process.
ENERGENX will continues to develop products to continue
the evolution of this technology.
As is well known in
the industry, a conventionally charged battery, as it ages, spends more time on its
charger in increasingly ineffective attempts to charge it. Since the battery with
substandard capacity cannot accept the electrical charge delivered to it, a large amount
of wasted energy used by this practice shows up as heat in the battery, even further
diminishing its capacity. Fully automated radiant chargers shut off when the battery can
no longer absorb any more energy, and by doing so, drastically reduce this waste.
Hundreds of millions of dollars are lost every year in battery
replacement costs and lost productivity. A huge percentage of this cost can be attributed
to the improper charging of batteries by conventional means. A radiant charging system
will actually save you money while keeping your battery-powered systems running more
powerfully. With increased battery power, the productivity will be easily recognized.
Charging down time and wasted energy will be signifcantly reduced. This could represent a
savings of 30% or more of your annual battery replacement and energy costs combined.
Furthermore, radiant charging is environmentally friendly,
reducing wasted energy consumption and preventing unnecessary, premature battery
