Industrial Batteries (UK) Limited – IBLUK – has produced a useful leaflet concerning the observations necessary to evaluate how long you can expect a high level of reliability.
The document outlines the main factors involved and the type of change you should be looking for including:
· Assessing that the installed system is the best option to give the optimum life from the system.
· Examine the maintenance procedures to ensure that they are compatible with providing the best service from the installation.
· Ensure that the charging system is compatible with the complete installation and see if modifications are required.
- Carry out an ‘expected life’ survey to establish the actual age of the battery, the health of the battery and the real expected life under the actual application conditions.
The leaflet then goes on to outline the factors which are important in evaluating the application conditions and what you should be looking for in your battery inspection.
