Trojan Battery Offers Tools Simplifying Maintenance of Industrial Line

The new offerings include a watering system and an Industrial Owner's Package, which features a hydrometer, battery maintenance log and user's guide.

Santa Fe Springs, Calif., Sept. 12, 2012 – Trojan Battery Co., the world's leading manufacturer of deep-cycle batteries, today announced the availability of several maintenance tools designed to assist customers in achieving maximum performance and life from their Industrial line batteries. The new offerings include a watering system and an Industrial Owner's Package, which features a hydrometer, battery maintenance log and user's guide.

"Proper maintenance practices and regular battery watering are important factors in maximizing the performance and life of Trojan's deep-cycle, flooded Industrial batteries," said Bryan Godber, Trojan's executive vice president of renewable energy. "By offering these various maintenance tools, Trojan is making it as easy as possible for our customers to commit to a regular maintenance and watering schedule to maximize the life of their investment."

Industrial Watering Kit
Trojan's watering system for the Industrial line makes watering Industrial batteries a simple, clean process. With Trojan's advanced, single-point watering system, precise battery watering is made easy saving valuable time and money as well as taking the guess work out of properly watering flooded batteries.

Industrial Owner's Package
Trojan's Industrial Owner's Package is designed to assist customers with proper battery installation and maintenance. The package includes a hydrometer, battery maintenance log and Industrial battery user's guide. The Industrial Owner's Package can be purchased through any Trojan Battery renewable energy customer of distributor, and is designed for Trojan's Industrial line of deep-cycle, flooded batteries.
Hydrometer – Trojan's battery hydrometer is a special Freas Glass Works hydrometer which features a float with a specific gravity scale range of 1.150 to 1.350 graduated in 0.005 degree division for 7/77 f. The hydrometer is used to check the specific gravity of the battery electrolyte solution in a flooded battery to estimate the battery's state of charge. Specific gravity is a measure of the density of sulfuric acid solution used as electrolyte in a battery, which changes as a battery is charged and discharged. A high specific gravity means a higher density of acid to water, which normally indicates a higher state of charge. Specific gravity is measured when the battery is not under a load and should not be measured soon after water is added to the battery.

Battery Maintenance Log – Trojan's battery maintenance log is used to record important information about the Industrial batteries including specific gravity, cell voltage, date and time of services, and overall state of the batteries. Trojan requires the battery maintenance log be kept updated on a regular basis to validate the warranty. Keeping track of battery maintenance information helps customers care for their batteries. It also helps both the installer and Trojan understand the battery's maintenance history in case troubleshooting is necessary. Overall, this process contributes to better battery performance and longer battery life.

Industrial Battery User's Guide – The Industrial Battery User's Guide was developed by Trojan's application engineers and contains vital information regarding proper care and maintenance of Trojan's Industrial batteries. The guide includes information about safety, installation, and other valuable topics to help customers successfully install, operate and maintain their deep-cycle flooded Industrial batteries.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
