Batteries and Chargers
Industrial batteries are a necessity for electric lift trucks. When you need industrial
batteries, Kelly Tractor Co. has the right battery for you. Kelly Tractor Co. offers
flooded and sealed Douglas Industrial batteries. Douglas Batery has been manufacturing
batteries since 1921. Douglas takes pride in the quality of product they produce.
Douglas is the only manufacturer that provides bolt-on cables, flip top caps, and
fully electrostatic powder coated battery trays as standard features.
Also known as wet batteries, flooded batteries have years of proven success. They
are the most common batteries in the field today. Wet batteries provide the following
- Dependable against harsh conditions
- Lowest manufacturing cost
- Easy repair procedures
- Truck compartment size is not an issue
However, flooded batteries require watering at time of charge, making maintenance
more costly than that of a sealed battery. Also, during charging, gas fumes are
emitted, requiring a charging room with good ventilation.
Douglas offers the ultimate in maintenance free power. This sealed, valve regulated
system is designed and manufactured to provide long life and superior performance,
while reducing maintenance costs and operating hazards. Legacy Platinum's sealed
construction and gas-recombinant technology eliminates the watering, corrosion clean
up, gassing, lead exposure, and leakage associated with traditional flooded batteries.
Douglas offers three different chargers to deliver the right charge for your battery
to consistently perform at its peak. The Douglas chargers will provide the charging
system necessary to complete an unbeatable power system. The following graph indicates
the appropriate combinations:
|Legacy Gold||Flooded batteries
|Legacy Platinum CFR||Flooded or AGM batteries
|Legacy Platinum SCR||All types of batteries
There are three factors that are included and affect the power system; the lift
truck, the battery, and the charger. It is essential for the correct combination
of the three main components to produce optimal output. A poor combination may lead
to reduced productivity, downtime, and will increase maintenance costs. Let a Kelly
Tractor Co. representative help you choose the right combination that suits your
needs. Call today.
