WATER BATH FORMATION TANK
The tank, made in stainless steel, has the internal dimensions of 10 x 1.2 m and the capacity of 216 batteries (standard size: l2 battery type).
Each tank has a front side of 1.2 m, which can be automatically opened and closed at each charging cycle.
Battery move inside the tank is assured by a motorized belt, covering the whole tank surface.
The suction hood for the gases generated during the charging cycle, is made of polypropylene sheet, anchored to the tank by means of a stainless steel frame. The on-board control panel, equipped with plc, manages the entire operation cycle automatically, including battery handling and continuous water temperature control. it’s interfaced with the plant managing pc by intranet, enabling the synchronization with the rectifier operation.

AUTOMATIC BATTERY LOADING SYSTEM
A proper device carries out the preparation of the battery row, coming from the acid filling unit, and the number per row varies according to the battery size.
Once the row is completed, the system transfers it to the tank loading conveyor, consisting of a motorized belt that transfers the batteries up to the loading position of the tank.
The conveyor is provided with supporting frame and guide, on which the loading shuttle (see picture below) can slide up to proper position in front of each tank.
The shuttle carries out the loading of the battery rows into the formation tank.

AUTOMATIC BATTERY UNLOADING SYSTEM
The unloading shuttle (see picture below) carries out the separation of the battery row in the tank and, once the row is completed, the system transfers it to the unloading conveyor, consisting of a motorized belt that receives the batteries from the tank.
The conveyor is provided with supporting frame and guide, on which the shuttle can slide up to proper position in front of the tank.
The exit conveyor, positioned at the end of the unloading belt, equipped with a pusher, transfers the batteries one by one to the finishing line.

WATER COOLING & AIR FILTERING SYSTEM
Disposal tower in polypropylene, providing the necessary filtering capacity, based on the installation requirements.
The upper part of the filter comprises a structure which acts as a drop separator; an electric centrifugal suction fan is built-in the tower, with a polypropylene impeller, directly coupled with the electric motor.
The central part houses the filling units, comprising the balls that treat the polluted material by back-flow water circulation.
The lower part houses a re-circulation water collection tank: the water is returned to the upper section by means of a re-circulation pump.
The water re-circulation enables its cooling, for the water bath purpose.
The wet filter is supplied complete with the electric control panel.
The connection between wet filter and formation tank is at customer’s charge.
A neutralization system of the acid contained in the re-circulation water is provided to keep the ph level within the set range.
The system includes the ph detector, as well as the sulphate detector; soda milk is fed automatically, according to the ph level detected in the water tank.
