Tubular Positive Plate

  • Excellent interface with the active mass
  • Higher power density
  • High tensile strength, corrosion resistance

Positive Active Mass

  • Efficient formation ensures that full cell capacity is achieved after 3-5 cycles
  • Uniformly filled positive plates, 100% weight controlled
  • Constant quality, homogeneous tamped density
  • Long service life, high conductivity, increased performance

Prevents mass shedding, high mechanical stability

Bottom Bar
Provides space for the unavoidable growth of the spine

Negative Grid
High tensile strength, corrosion resistance, low water consumption

Negative Active Mass

  • Constant quality
  • Consistency of the Negative Active Mass

Increased performance preventing short-circuits

Formation & Activation
Constant quality in each and every cell

Long life performance

Pole Terminal
Uses the unavoidable growth of the plates to press against the grommet and improve the sealing

Pole Bridge
Consistent & uniform composition ensures superior connections

Bolt-on Connector
Allowing easy replacement of cells on the field

Polypropylene reinforced lid thermo-welded to the container in black or grey color

 Cell Container
Polypropylene container, with sufficient sediment space

 Operational Vent Plug

  •  No need to remove vent cap–flip and fill
  • Installs with 1/4 turn Snap lock lid

Inter-cell Connector
Fully insulated flexible bolt-on cable connectors
