To improve forklift battery performance, safety, life & efficiency, we must follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and battery care instructions. See below checklist which will guide you to keep your electric forklift battery alive/safe during the pandemic lockdown/long period of no work.
Almost all the industrial operators are witnessing a heavy induction of batteries in their fleet. Gone those days, when they had to depend on the ICE fleet. Now electronic MHEs are replacing these conventional fleets and these high-tech vehicles are being operated by batteries. However, these vehicles also require the same amount of periodic maintenance as conventional vehicles. It is important to know all about the battery and their pros and cons all together.
At the present time, all most all the industrial operators prefer to switch from the conventional fossil fuel operating machines to pollution less electric vehicles. As a result, they are getting exempted from the huge investment on fossil fuel and it will truly make a great contribution on their business.
Industrial batteries are designed to store massive energy and release when there is a need. These are meant to meet the energy requirement of massive equipments. Therefore, they need equal care in order to meet the current needs.
As we are approaching a new decade, all most all industrial operators are much aware about to curb the carbon footprint. Induction of lithium-ion batteries is a blessing and these are now being used in a number of applications including material handling equipment. These are safe and able to power the equipments for longer period of time without causing any pollution. These are safe and require minimal investment on maintenance.
Locomotives are playing crucial role on public transportation sector. These massive engines are truly reliable and able to reduce time and expense on public transportation. Most of the developing countries have longer rail networks and they are pushing their economies forward. However, maintaining these marvellous machines are not as easier as we think. To start these machines, there are bigger locomotive batteries are being used
Electricity is the future solution of energy sources. You can find a number of industrial applications those are depending on this clean energy source. Gone those days, when material handling equipments were depending on “Internal Combustion Engines” to operate their daily duties.
Energy is the main source of development. Fossil fuels have been using from long time in order to meet the energy needs. According to experts, this source of energy is going to be finished within five decades. In order to replace this energy source, researchers are now using electricity. From mobility to different industrial operation, electricity is being used vastly.
Effects of global warming are increasing at a faster rate, wherein the rising sea levels and extreme change in the climate remains one of the biggest issues of humanity.
Are you wondering about the maintenance of Forklift battery? Well, this is something essential and important to take proper care and maintenance of forklift battery. At present, it becomes crucial to take good battery watering to improve the expectation of forklift batteries. In every forklift, the battery takes a major role and it’s around thirty percent of the cost of the forklift; therefore, automatic battery watering system becomes crucial for every industry to consider.
Orizen Group - one of the leading industrial battery charger suppliers in South Africa with more than 18 years of reputation. This company offers Micropower high-frequency battery charger which are ideal for industrial use. As we all know that an industrial battery charger are used to charge big size batteries and at the same time offers DC output.
Diesel locomotive batteries work as prime mover in any diesel engine. Diesel vehicles are considered to be best in terms of efficiency and have a longer lifespan while maintaining a great overall mileage.
We know that recycling is an activity which aims to reduce the number of batteries being disposed as solid waste.
Maintenance of industrial batteries is the most integral part of any facility management. To have a regular check-up of industrial batteries will undoubtedly save from unnecessary costs of repair and maintenance charges.
Forklifts need constant power supply to work properly, for which they use deep cycle industrial grade batteries that can be discharged up to 80% on a regular basis. Forklifts use a variety of industrial batteries ranging from size to density.
The Wikipedia defines a battery management system (BMS) as any electronic system which manages a rechargeable battery (cell or battery pack) by protecting the battery from operating outside its safe zone, monitoring its site, calculating secondary data, reporting that data, controlling the environment and balancing it.
Electric motors are in huge demand these days. Electric engine is an absolute replacement for internal combustion engine mostly used in warehouse and production areas. In last few years, traditional lead-acid tyoes has gained much popularity, however, new and more innovative lead acid technologies and other alternatives are creating scope for better operations and helps in reduction of total cost of ownership. Below are ten important points to consider before upgrading your battery fleet:
Selecting the Right Solid Forklift Tyre When purchasing forklift tyres, many consumers look to buy economy tyres based on price. It is important that they understand what their actual requirements are and know what type of tyre they are buying. Each tyre comes with different tread, compound or ply rating, which ensures the tyre used will best fit the application. When your forklift tyre is in good shape, it reduces the stress and wear on the transmission as well as the forklift.
Battery warranty/life is 4 years This is really a huge challenge for all of us as some companies in South Africa advertise that the new batteries supplied by them come with 4 years warranty. Fact: Battery is designed for certain number of cycles at particular Depth of Discharge (DOD) Actually, a Battery is designed for certain number of cycles. (Cycle meaning 80% use of capacity, which is one
The Dos & Don’ts of Forklift Battery Maintenance In material handling industry, few equipment gets abused as much as the forklift. During pick hours and rough working conditions, sometimes we skip the steps when it comes to maintaining the forklift batteries. But with each episode of abuse, the life of the battery gets shorter. To get designed life of your forklift battery, to ensure safety and optimal performance and to reduce unnecessary expenses, it is
