ThermOil De-Mister helps to increase battery life

IPS, the leading independent provider of replacement parts for powered access equipment, is adding more power to its batteries offering.

ThermOil Inc has appointed IPS as the exclusive UK distributor for its Battery De-Mister and Battery De-Sulfater products. These non-hazardous additives help optimise the performance and prolong the life of lead acid batteries used in access platforms.

Terry Fellner, President of ThermOil Inc said: “IPS has a huge amount of experience in supplying replacement parts and is highly regarded in the aerial lift industry. We believe IPS is therefore the right partner to take ThermOil forward and continue our penetration of the UK market.”

IPS is also launching its own Power Series of 6V deep cycle traction batteries for aerial lifts. Compatible with all leading powered access brands, these pure lead batteries come with a two year warranty. The initial Power range features five batteries ranging from 220Ah to 380Ah.

Kevin Shadbolt, Operations Director of IAPS Group, which owns IPS, said: “We are delighted to be taking on the UK distributorship of ThermOil products, which help access equipment owners to save money by making traction batteries last longer.

IPS has more than a decade of experience in supplying replacement parts and is the official UK parts distributor for a number of manufacturers including Genie, Hinowa, Omme Lift, Isoli, Youngman BoSS, Grove Manlift, Manitou, Pop-Up and MEC. It also offers a wide range of after-market parts for lesser-known brands and obsolete machines, sourced directly from the component manufacturers. Its team of experienced access parts specialists, coupled with a sophisticated parts database, ensure IPS provides a high level of technical support to customers.

The ThermOil products and Power Series batteries are available to order online from the new IPS webshop. IPS will exhibit both the Power Series batteries and ThermOil products at Vertikal Days 2015, or for further information visit the new parts website,
