An understandable cause for concern amongst those designing a battery room is the heat generated by the battery system to be installed. The heat generated can be affected by numerous factors such as the shape and size of the battery, its chemistry (ie, is it VRLA, Gel etc) and of course the wether the battery is on charge, float or discharge.

In our latest blog article we look at the several ways this can be calculated, recommendations for which can differ between manufacturers, and the considerations that need to be made.Heat generation is an important aspect of battery room design, as of course heat can cause a considerable degradation of battery services life.

As always, if you are in any doubt please contact us for any assistance required.

GS Yuasa are currently investing in a new electric vehicle battery plant assembling lithium ion batteries to meet with the growing demands of hybrid car markets.

Electric vehicles are set to become the future as many countries set about restricting and banning gasoline and diesel cars over the next decade and Yuasa are ensuring they are well placed to support this industry. The plant will also provide a major economic boost around the area of Miskolc, Hungary providing more than 50 jobs in the initial stages with intention to increase this going forward.

How to carry out a VRLA battery discharge test? In battery testing the most conclusive test method must be discharge testing, to carry this out and obtain useful and accurate information for analysis then strict procedures must be adhered to and understood. In September we posted an article describing this undertaking together with methods and graph examples to create an accurate picture of the requirements of testing VRLA batteries by discharging.

This article focuses on the discharge testing, information on fault finding that may be required once reviewing test information is included elsewhere within our blog. For any additional information or guidance please contact us at Blue Box Batteries directly, or for ongoing information and discussions regarding VRLA batteries then please follow out blog for updates.

Yuasa have played host to the new BBC One Wales series ‘The Hour’ which provides a national debate platform for which this episode discussed the subject of work. The Yuasa factory at Ebbw Vale is a major employer in the region and so is an ideal location to deal with this subject matter. The studio was constructed within the factory itself and the hosts given a step by step tour of the manufacturing processes.

The factory employs 600 skilled workers and has been in operation since 1982, since then it is estimated that in excess of 80 million Yuasa battery blocs have been produced here in a wide range of capacities to suit a full spectrum of requirements. Yuasa have constantly been at the forefront of VRLA battery technology and continues to combine innovation with high quality standards.

With more that 60% of products exported outside of the UK, the factory is a great location to serve the European markets and beyond.

Power density is often referred to by battery manufacturers to describe using minimal space yet provide maximum power. This quality is well demonstrated in this image of an Enersys SBS900 installation which incorporates providing a high rate 24V 900Ah battery system within a minimal footprint.

Creating space for essential power protection within a modern data centre or IT environment can be a real issue. Battery manufacturers meet this challenge by designing standby batteries with the smallest possible footprint to make the best use of limited space without compromising performance.
