Advantages of Battery De-Sulfater Battery Additive
Battery De-Sulfater is a non-acid chemical formula which breaks down deadly sulfation corrosion that has formed on plates and insulators and restores normal action in cells. The chemicals in Battery De-Sulfater are safe for all new and used lead acid batteries. It has an indefinite shelf-life and is unconditionally guaranteed to restore, improve and prolong the life of mechanically sound lead-acid batteries regardless of make, age, or size.
How Battery De-Sulfater Battery Additive Works
Lead acid batteries are basically small power plants that store chemical energy in clean plate materials. They are made up of plates, lead, lead oxide and various other elements that are used to change density, hardness, porosity, etc. These lead acid batteries are chemically charged with pure sulfuric acid (about 35%) and pure distilled water (about 65%). This solution is called electrolyte which causes a chemical reaction that produces electrons.
The sulfuric acid enters the clean plate pores causing a normal chemical action. A soft, spongy film, called lead sulfate forms on the negative plates. When you test a battery with a hydrometer you are measuring the amount of sulfuric acid in the electrolyte. If your reading is low, that means the chemistry that makes electrons is lacking. So where did the sulfur go? It is resting on the outside of the battery plates and when you recharge the battery this sulfur returns into the electrolyte.
When lead acid batteries are left sitting even in only a partial discharge state they begin to sulfate. This sulfation begins when the sulfur molecules in the electrolyte (battery acid) begin to coat the battery’s lead plates. In a very short period of time these lead sulfate crystals turn abnormally hard and clogs the plates. Sulfuric acid cannot enter the pores and the battery starves to death.
Battery De-Sulfater will restore the normal action in the cells of these mechanically sound batteries by breaking down, dissolving and keeping hard crystallized sulfation from forming again. Battery De-Sulfater will increase battery life, increase power efficiency, reduce battery failure, will keep Pb02 spongy and soft, will strengthen lead plate components, eliminate resistance by up to 50% and will restre sulfated mechanically sound batteries regardless of make, age or size and is 100% GUARANTEED!
Video – How Battery De-Sulfater works
This animation shows how Battery De-Sulfater works.
The solution of Battery De-Sulfater and electrolyte in each cell must be at a specific concentration to work properly. Below are pre-calculated values for many common deep cycle battery models.
NOTE: The values and formula provided below refer to deep cycle batteries and should not be used for other battery types.
CAUTION: Starting batteries have thinner plates than deep cycle batteries. If you are treating a starting battery, use at least 1/3 less than the amount calculated or shown in the chart below for your specific starting battery model.
NOTE: If your specific battery type is not listed in the chart above, use the formula below to calculate the amount of Battery De-Sulfater to add to each cell of the battery.
Battery De-Sulfater Volume Calculation formula
((w * 2.5) ÷ c) ÷ 30 = s
w = Weight of battery, in pounds
c = Number of cells in battery (e.g., 3, 6, 12, 18, 24)
s = Number of fluid ounces of Battery De-Sulfater to add to each cell
Multiply the weight of the battery (in pounds) by 2.5, then divide this number by the number of cells present in the battery (e.g., 3, 6, 12, 18, 24), then divide this number by 30. This is the amount of Battery De-Sulfater to add to each cell of a deep cycle battery. If treating a starting battery, use at least 1/3 less than the amount calculated.
