Making A Difference

After struggling for years to find a way to give back to my community, I started thinking about the incredible number of people who worked in the industrial field. I knew that a lot of people had trouble staying safe while they were at work, so I began talking with different people to see how they thought the industry could change. It was incredible to gather up all of the information and share it with the companies that could really make a difference, and now I honestly feel like I have made some big changes. Check out this blog for great information on making a difference in the industrial field.

Forklift Batteries Wearing Out? 4 Systems You Need To Help Extend Their Life And Make Maintenance Easier

When your company relies on forklifts, the last thing you want to deal with is a bunch of dead batteries. After all, without strong batteries, your forklifts aren't going anywhere. To keep your forklift batteries up-and-running, you need to keep them properly maintained. In addition to proper maintenance, here are four systems you should invest in to help extend the life of your forklift batteries and make maintenance more efficient:

Single-Point Fill System

When it comes to extending the life of your forklift batteries, one of the most important things you can do is keep them filled with the right amount of water. Unfortunately, filling each battery cell can be time-consuming, which means work may be delayed while your crew refills their batteries. Installing a single-point fill system will allow your batteries get filled up with water in less time, which means your crew can get back to work quicker. It also means your batteries will be filled to the right levels each, and every, time.

Water Deionizer Systems

If you have hard water at your place-of-business, you may be putting your forklift batteries in jeopardy. You might not realize this, but the minerals and other impurities found in hard water can damage your forklift batteries, and make them wear out faster. Water deionizer systems remove the minerals and impurities, making the water safer for your forklift batteries. As a result, your batteries will last longer, which will mean less downtime.

Battery Indicator Systems

It can be time-consuming to check the water levels in your batteries every day. Unfortunately, that's what you need to do if you want to avoid costly problems. However, there is a way to avoid the daily water inspections. You can install a battery indicator system. The battery light indicators serve as an alert system to notify you when your batteries are running low on water. Not only does the system eliminate the need for daily monitoring, it also makes maintenance run more efficiently.

Digital Battery Hydrometers

In order for your forklift batteries to work properly, the ratio of sulfuric acid to water must be specific for the particular operating temperature. That information can be difficult to compute when you're trying to do it all by hand. That's where a hydrometer comes in handy. Your hydrometer will keep track of the specific gravity of your batteries electrolytes, and transmit the information electronically. You'll be able to track your batteries quickly and thoroughly.
