Batteryvitamin - Designed to provide the biggest savings in motive power battery history
Lead-acid motive power batteries, like all batteries, eventually wear out. Deep cycling constitutes the most arduous type of work for batteries. Repeatedly discharging and recharging inevitably causes - (1) the grids of the positive plates to become corroded - (2) shedding of the active material from the positive plates. Shedding begins at about 50% of motive power battery service life, resulting in a progressive reduction in ampere-hours as batteries age. Batteryvitamin has a unique capacity to suppress this corrosion, to cut down shedding, to conserve ampere-hours and, consequently, to extend battery life.
The lead-acid battery industry is well served by 130 years of solid technical experience. The industry's extensive knowhow has been overlaid in the market place by superficially researched concepts aimed at enthusiasts: Sulfation and the merits of desulfation. Widely promoted. Not particularly effective. Sulfation is a symptom, not a cause of battery failure. The makers of batteries and experienced lead-acid motive power battery users are unanimous. It is corrosion of the positive plates, not sulfation, that causes industrial motive power batteries to wear out and eventually become unserviceable. The sulfation that does occur in lead-acid affects, in descending order, recreational marine, light aircraft, military vehicle, automotive and rental batteries - occasionally golf-cart batteries - only very rarely industrial motive power batteries.
Our technology is aimed at suppressing corrosion of the positive plates. The positive plates themselves have traditionally been at the focus of anti-corrosion research by the lead-acid battery industry. An independent battery research group and an industrial process research group, working collaboratively, discovered that by directing anti-corrosion treatment at the negative plates, instead of at the positive plates, corrosion of the the positive plate grids can be dramatically reduced. (For use in motive power and deep cycling batteries. Not suitable for automobile batteries.)
Batteryvitamin treatment employs physics to create a barrier that prevents waste given off by the positive grid corrosion - that inevitably finds its way into the battery sulfuric acid electrolyte - from electroplating out onto the negative plates. Solubility of this corrosion waste in battery acid is extremely low, thus the acid quickly becomes saturated by even the tiniest amounts of waste. It is this saturation that chokes off the corrosion that would otherwise have taken place at the positives. (See Basic Technical Information, part 2, Specialist Technical Information.)
Batteryvitamin has been designed to help motive power battery operators obtain at least 40% extra service life out of their batteries. We believe that full technical disclosure constitutes the currency of trust. Batteryvitamin has the integrity needed to trail-blaze a switch-over to the most effective battery user cost saving procedure in motive power battery history.
