Iron Edison Unveils Water Purifying System for Nickel Iron Batteries

Water deionizer will save time and money for routine electrolyte refills

Iron Edison Battery Company and Philadelphia Scientific have collaborated to offer a water deionizer system for Iron Edison Nickel Iron batteries that eliminates the need for store-bought distilled water for electrolyte replenishment.

The HydroPure Deionizer System is a wall-mounted unit that connects directly to a tap water source. The water is purified through the HydroPure cartridge to meet factory standards for Nickel Iron water quality, and is the only deionizer system approved for use with Iron Edison batteries.
"For many of our customers, the cost per gallon of water using the deionizer system will be less than the cost per gallon of store-bought distilled water," said Brandon Williams, CEO of Iron Edison Battery Company. "We're excited to offer more convenience to Nickel Iron battery owners who have already chosen the longest lasting, most durable solar battery on the market."
A purity light on the deionizer unit, specially calibrated to 6 parts-per-million (ppm) of total dissolved solids (TDS) required for Iron Edison Nickel Iron batteries, will change from green to red when the cartridge needs to be replaced. Each cartridge is rated for approximately 400 gallons of water, depending on the quality of the water source.
The HydroPure Deionizer System is compatible with the Philadelphia Scientific Battery Watering Gun-X to inject the purified water into the battery cells.
The water deionizer system, replacement cartridges and watering gun are available now on IronEdison.com.
Like most flooded deep-cycle batteries, water in the electrolyte of a Nickel Iron battery is consumed through electrolysis, requiring periodic water to be added to the battery cells to replenish the electrolyte.
Lab testing on the HydroPure deionizer cartridges showed a capacity of 406 gallons per cartridge using water with a purity level of 145 ppm TDS, which is below average for United States water quality according to Philadelphia Scientific.
Philadelphia Scientific is offering a complementary water analysis for parties interested in the HydroPure system. The report will show their water's TDS and what the cost per gallon of water would be using the HydroPure Deionizer System. Contact the sales department at Iron Edison for more information.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
