Performance Specifications for ABSOLYTE XL Batteries


Amperes @ 25C (77F) 1 minute to 120 hours

SECTION 27.20 2005-07

State of the Art Design


4

As an industrial battery ages, chemical corrosion causes the positive


plates to expand, placing pressure on the posts, the cover and the
seals. Excessive plate growth, which can be caused by high
temperature environments, will cause the positive plate to damage
the cover and seals, thus shortening the life of the battery. The XL
design helps eliminate this failure mode by removing stresses placed
on the seals and cover by forcing the growth away from the seal.

PLATE GROWTH DIR


ECTION

The steel face plate reduces stress on cover, and improves heat
dissipation through cover.

The post restraint spacer reduces stress on post using the


face plate for support.

Plate growth is forced away from the posts and cover seals.

Additional space to accommodate the


positive plate growth.

Horizontal plate stacking improves heat dissipation through tray.

High separator compression within the cell maintains plate to


separator contact, helping to prevent capacity loss.

Unique S wrap absorbed glass mat separator design helps


prevent positive (orange) plate to negative (gray) plate shorting.

The Most Reliable Post and


Jar to Cover Seal Design

The XL post seal design eliminates the


lead to lead bond with a completely
non-corrosive polypropylene to
polypropylene bond formed by a fusion
process that creates a bond as strong as,
or stronger than the original material.

LEAD POST
POST CAP

The interface between the lead post and


the plastic sleeve is coated with a viscous
bonding agent which guarantees a leak free
bond.

Leaks 1000 times smaller than the eye can see are
discovered by super-sensitive leak detection system,
helping to guarantee the quality of the seals.
