Industrial batteries require regular maintenance to keep them in top condition. Large batteries, like those used in forklifts, can be difficult to maintain due to their size and weight. Forklift batteries can weigh between 800 and 4,000 pounds, and the required maintenance on them is time-consuming. However, by following a regular schedule of upkeep on these large batteries, you can extend the life of the battery.
Properly maintained batteries are great for keeping your equipment running efficiently and safely, and that is why it’s important. The most important item to stay on top of is the water level in the cells of the batteries. When the water levels are too low, then the battery won’t work at its maximum power. Batteries that have been allowed to run without water typically won’t recharge. Even worse, if the water has dried up entirely, then the battery may stop functioning due to a short in the system.
On the other hand, overfilling the battery’s cells can also be a problem. When a cell is overfilled, it can boil over and allow acid from inside the battery to corrode the connections. If you’re in charge of battery maintenance, then it’s important to keep a close eye on the water levels when you fill them. It can be difficult to keep up with filling these large batteries, but they’re an essential part of keeping heavy-duty equipment running. It’s even more tricky when it comes to trying to fill battery cells in an environment where there’s not a lot of room between the industrial equipment.
We have a solution to this problem that will make forklift battery watering and other battery maintenance seamless— battery watering guns attach to a standard hose and extend the reach of the water flow, making it easier to reach the cells in each battery. Its flow rate is fast, but it gently fills the battery without splashing out of the cell. You can feel safe in knowing you won’t be splashed by battery acid with our ergonomic battery watering gun.
The battery watering gun also features an automatic shutoff, so you don’t have to guess when to turn it off. It also allows watering to be done without the chance that you will accidentally make contact with the battery and potentially injure yourself. We believe that safety should be a number one priority, and that’s why using a battery watering gun for your maintenance needs is essential for an injury-free workplace.
