Recombination plug

BATER has developed and patented recombination plug virtually eliminating the need to refill water in classic wet batteries and reducing the risk of explosion to VRLA battery level. This reduces maintenance costs and these associated with room ventilation.

Why should we use recombination plug?

As chemical constituents are charged with electricity, oxygen and hydrogen are released as a byproduct of the breakdown of water in the electrolyte.  These gases are then released into the atmosphere, creating an explosion danger.  At the same time, this process reduces the electrolyte’s water level, which then has to be replenished periodically.  One means of effectively eliminating this undesirable phenomenon is to employ a system which recombines the gasses externally.  The designers’ purpose in constructing BATER recombination plug was to prevent the release of battery gasses directly into the atmosphere. The plug, which recombines water from oxygen and hydrogen released during the charging of the chemical constituents, consists of an airtight casing containing the recombination device—a specially designed ceramic cylinder filled with a catalytic deposit and a deposit having absorptive properties. At the same time it enables to top up minor water losses, which is impossible in case of VRLA batteries.

Therefore, classic batteries with recombination plug have much longer life than VRLA batteries, in which it is not possible to refill water.
