Solar Photo Voltaic Systems
“SAKTHI” stationary Tubular Battery has been designed and developed for Solar Photovoltaic applications requiring high reliability related to diverse conditions of charge and discharge cycles.
"SAKTHI" battery requires minimum maintenance adequately provided by special vent plug with ceramic which comes as a standard fitment. The battery can be kept on float cyclic or boost / trickle charge.
Since our Batteries are used for Solar application, all the care has been taken to improve the quality of our “Tubular Batteries”, by using:
Micro-porous ceramic vent plugs - free from Acid-fumes
Heavy duty Lug type terminals - Easy connection
Containers:PPCP containers conforming to IS: 1146 resist tough beating normally encountered in service life.
Tubular Positive Plates: High oxidation and acid resistant gauntlets, specially designed to envelope spines of the positive grids and hold the active material in position without hampering the free movement of acid, guarantee high performance at all loads.
Negative Plates: The pasted type negative plates are of sturdy construction. The active material is a blend of oxide, special additives and expanders which helps the battery to perform better and ensures its longer life. As a result, a high ampere-hour efficiency of more than 90% and a watt-hour efficiency of over 75% are achieved.
Spines: The Spines are casted in a High Pressure Die casting machine, ensuring dense & fine grain structure and thereby giving high corrosion resistant, long life spines.
Grid: The special proprietary low maintenance grid alloy resists anodic corrosion, reduces water loss and ensures long service life of the battery with low maintenance.
Separators: The high quality micro porous separators with high porosity are made of high quality raw materials conforming to IS 6071.
Vent Plug:The flame retardant ceramic vent plugs prevent the evaporation of water from the cell. The porous structure traps escaping acid vapor but allows the gases to go out.
Electrolyte: The battery should be filled with pure battery grade sulphuric acid confirming to IS: 266. When fully charged, the specific gravity should rise to 1.250 +/- 0.005 at 270C. Care should be taken to maintain the same specific gravity during the service life of the battery.
Additives: Special Additives are used for enhanced battery performance and to reduce sulphation. There by increasing overall life.
Keep the battery cover and terminals clean & dry. Apply petroleum jelly on the terminals to avoid corrosion. The surrounding area should also be kept clean & dry.
All electrical connections should be tight to avoid heating up and prevent short circuit.
Care should be taken not to short circuit the terminals while using tools such as spanner.
After use, charge the battery promptly. If the battery is left in a discharged state for a long time, the plates would tend to sulphate.
During charging, do not allow the temperature of the electrolyte to rise above 540 C. Interrupt the charging to cool the electrolyte.
As a safety measure, ensure good ventilation in the battery room. Do not bring open flame or lighted cigarette, etc near the battery as otherwise; it could lead to an explosion.
Never expose batteries to direct sunlight.
When many batteries are connected in series or parallel, after a few months, equalization charge may be required to rectify any in-equality among the cells that may develop during service life.
