Water bath formation




▶ We propose to you our WT2-480T Formation Water Bath in PPS, with frames in Stainless Steel 316L, with capacity of 480 batteries type L1-L2 (400 batteries L3 type – 144 batteries B type).
▶ The solution proposed has 24 circuits of max 20 batteries per water bath (suggested rectifiers 360V – 60A).
▶ The Water Bath Formation Advantages are:

  •  Integrated process:
    – System for Recirculation and Storage of the water for the cooling of the batteries during formation, with a series of pumps and accumulation tank for water;
    – Electrical Panel on-board;
  •  Acid Resistant Structure:
    The bath is realized in PPS and the support structure is made in Stainless Steel AISI 316L.
  • Safety during Formation:
    The windows and doors are equipped with micro-switches for safety control, if during the formation the window is open the rectifiers stop sending the current (the working state goes in HALT), by a hardware switch.
  • Temperature Control:
    Our system is continuously checking the temperature of the batteries (data coming from rectifiers) during formation and uses the recirculation of cooled water to maintain constant the setup temperature inside the battery during the process (better quality).
  • Water pH Control.
  • No waste of water: the recirculated water is unloaded on an integrated cooled tank (with cooling coils) and then reused for batteries cooling and fumes treatment.
  • Motorized conveyor belts inside the water bath for an automatic loading/unloading.

The proposed water bath is also available with on-board scrubber/cooling tower(WT2-480TAIO All In One version).
This optional will permit to have:
• Integrated Aspiration and Fumes treatment system: no connection to an external scrubber needed;
• Integrated system for water cooling: the cooling tower drops the temperature of the water to feed the cooling coils in the water tank. The cooling capacity depends on the specific characteristics of the installation; an external chiller may be also required. The scrubbers should be connected to an exhaust air chimney to exterior.
