Lead Acid Battery Recycling

Lead Acid Battery Recycling in action

 The process of Lead Acid Battery Recycling is performed on virtually on one machine. The scrap batteries which have come to the end of their Lead Acid Battery Life, start out at one end. The batteries are then crushed by hammering them into little broken pieces and they are moved on by conveyor belt into a very large container, where the heavy pieces fall to the bottom and all the broken plastics float at the top.

 The plastic pieces are then scraped away, and the toxic liquid is drained away leaving the lead pieces and heavy metals to go onto the next stage. The drained off acid is then treated with another chemical, which makes the acid into a neutral liquid a type of water. The water is then treated and tested in a special water treatment plant to ensure that it meets the necessary safety standards. The liquid is then treated and made into a powder for use in the textile industry.The Lead Acid Battery Recycling is an old technology and batteries are re-processed over and over again. The pieces of plastic are washed and dried and melted down, then they are put through an ext-ruder, where they are then made into plastic pellets. The pellets are then sold to the makers of battery casings, who mix the old plastic with some new plastic to make new battery cases, these cases are all black because they are recycled, white or coloured cases are made of all new plastic or polypropylene.

 All the lead pieces then pass on to a furnace and heated in a smelting furnace where they are melted. The molten lead is constantly cleaned and the impurities scraped off. The lead is then poured into mold and made into ingots. The ingots are again scraped for impurities and then finally left to cool. The Lead Acid Battery Recycling parts are then packed into bundles and used in the making of cheap new batteries.

 Lead acid batteries are used in many applications

12 Volt Lead Acid Batteries can be very dangerous if they are not re-cycled, and just dumped say into land fill. These batteries come in many shapes and form and are used for many purposes and in many industries. Many people do not know that these batteries are also used on trains, as well as cars and trucks, in fact train batteries can be huge in size and weigh

many kilograms. These batteries are used on many types of back up systems in case of a mains power cut, in many industries and hospitals. These types of Sealed Lead Acid Batteries MSDS are known as UPS batteries, which stands for (uninterrupted power supply).

Many large computer systems have huge banks of these types of Sealed Lead Acid Batteries UK, they are even used in submarines and military vehicles. So the need for recycling is extremely important to us all. Many of these batteries are well known to golfers with electric golf carts these  vehicles use AGM batteries and Gel batteries, also people with boats will be very familiar with the AGM battery, there are many,many applications and millions of different types of lead acid batteries on the market.

Overheated Car batteries-Can cause an Explosion also Extreme Heat Can Burn Up Your Car Battery

Overheated Car batteries

Overheated Car batteries

Overheated Car batteries

Of course, the main reason for a battery exploding is over charging? Therefore, it is important to explain some of the reasoning behind simple charging methods.

Some battery chargers. Hence, need to be connected to a main power supply. So, during the charging process. While others are rechargeable and a power supply is not necessary. These portable chargers can be used in charging a car battery anywhere and they are easily transported too.

Here at our garage, Pellon Autocentre, in Halifax, Yorkshire ,UK. We very often have to go out to cars with starting problems. Of course, these problems differ. But the main problem is a flat battery.

For this, we use our portable battery charger. This portable charger uses a 12 volt 22 Ah AGM battery. The type used on mobility scooters and golf trolleys. These are good as long as you do not forget to charge the charger up. Especially after use?

Other types of portable charger are the ones that are simply plugged into the 12-volt outlet socket. Usually the cigarette lighter port. As a result these small chargers are able to charge the battery of the car at a low rate of amps. More modern equipment now include solar chargers. These are reasonably cheap and can be used where there is no mains power supply. Often used by campervan owners to charge up their campervan batteries.

Overheated Car batteries

This is the advice where the possibility of an explosion may occur? Most types of lead acid batteries give off a gas. Especially when they are being charged up. Therefore, you should take into consideration some important safety measurements. Avoid smoking or any other types of naked lights when working on the car battery. Especially, while charging the battery? Because the hydrogen and sulfur dioxide gas from the battery may cause an explosion. Causing an unwanted accident.

This is the reason why batteries should be charged in a well ventilated area. To properly charge a battery. Take note if the fluid level is above the lead plates .This is if the battery is a screw top type? To prevent the battery from overheating, charge it on the lowest charger amps setting. Of course,it will take a longer time to charge the battery. Subsequently, if a faster charge is required, then a higher Amps must be set on the charger.

The big problem occurs when the battery is being overcharged. This is what causes problems in the charging room. Sulphuric acid contains sulphur, and hydrogen sulphide  (H2S) can be a possible by-product of over-charging and battery decomposition. When overcharging then the sulphur smells like rotten eggs. So it is a very bad smell. Just to “add salt into the wound” then Hydrogen is also given off by a battery. Although this is not toxic high concentrations give off a highly explosive gas.

So as you can see the dangers of charging a battery. However, over the number of years that I have worked in the battery trade then only one explosion from an over charged battery has occurred. it is just common sense really.

Lucas Premium Batteries-Key to Hassle-Free-Car Maintenance from Johnson Controls

Lucas Premium Batteries

Lucas Premium Batteries

Lucas Premium Batteries

Of course, since I wrote this post in 2016, then things in the automotive industry have moved on. Especially, in the battery world. Including Lucas batteries!

Because of new emissions laws then the auto industry have had to develop cleaner and greener engines. Emission laws have become much stricter and car makers have had to develop cleaner engines. Including “Start-Stop “engines. I think we all probably know by now what this is. However judging by the emails that i have to respond to on Ebay ! Then you would not think so.

Customers still want the cheapest car battery possible ?

So, customers with large cars are always trying to cut corners by asking about the cheapest battery for their car. Annoyingly, they are always asking if our small 063 battery will fit their vehicle ! Of course the correct battery is usually ten times bigger and more powerful ! But they would fit the cheapest car battery possible if the could !

So, why this is I will never know ! This brings me on to “Stop-Start” batteries. Because of the constant switching on and off of the car engines that are fitted with stop-start then a stronger battery with a deep cycle capability had to be developed. So, this development came in two forms! The AGM car battery and the EFB car battery.

Consequently, the AGM battery comes out on the larger car models and the EFB car battery on the smaller car models. This is usually the general rule of thumb. So, without getting too technical, your battery will state which type it is. Of course the images on this post clearly show the different types ! AGM of EFB.

Not only are batteries a mode of transportation

Significantly,battery selection can be a reflection of their respective owners. Of course, this relates to the selection of different types of Lucas Premium Batteries and which car drivers buy. So, as I have siad earlier some of our online customers just want the Cheap Car Batteries. Whilst other people prefer to buy a better known brand, such as Lucas Premium Batteries.

If you require a certain type of battery for your vehicle. Say with a different terminal type,such as early Ford vehicles, like say the Ford Cortina or early Ford Escort. Of course, you can look for products on the search engines and type in ” Batteries to fit Ford Cortinas”.

Owning a vehicle has also become supposedly easier

Because there are more options now and the second hand car market is more organized and sophisticated. Of course, thanks to the Internet and e-commerce. However, a lot of people prefer to hold on to their old cars and vans! Because the not-so-recent global economic crisis has decreased their purchasing power. the average family in the UK spends £3000 a year less than before the financial crisis started.

So,for these reasons, it is important to keep your vehicle in tiptop shape for as long as possible. naturally,this could be achieved with proper vehicle maintenance. Apart from the periodic oil changes and tune-ups ! So, it is also crucial that your car be installed with dependable and well-performing  Premium grade Batteries.

Even with the advent od electric cars, the majority of the world’s vehicle owners drive cars run on fossil fuels.

Because of engine development including on-board computers. Specifically,these cars require more a more powerful supply of electric energy ! Without good quality Premium Batteries .Your car will not be able to start !Nor will it be able to have access to electrical power in the event of an alternator failure.

In addition, as I have said, nearly all recent car models have an on-board computer . Which is also powered by electrical charge supplied by the car batteries. Suffice it to say, people must pay as much attention to their car batteries as other aspects of their cars. There are numerous dealers of well-known brands such as ApolloPower batteries, Varta batteries, and of course Lucas batteries. All of which can be found at regular shops or online battery stores. They are best places to go to for information and recommendations for the most suitable Premium Batteries for your particular vehicle. There are certain factors to consider in choosing a Replacement Car Battery ! So be aware of these ! Consequently, by ensuring the longevity of your battery and the overall stress-free maintenance of your vehicle.

Lucas Premium Batteries

The first consideration is which battery is for you.

This can be determined by your old batteries part number ! Also by measuring the dimensions of your existing battery, including the terminal layout ! There are standard group sizes which cover all types of Lucas batteries.

 You can find out the group size of your car battery by checking the owner’s manual or through certain online sources for battery cataloging. Another important factor to consider is what the Amp/Hr rating is for your battery ?

Lucas Premium Batteries

This Lucas Premium Batteries has special bolt on terminals to fit early Ford cars

This is an important element in choosing a good car battery . Because it determines how long the battery can supply the required electrical power. Of course, in case the car’s alternator fails to function. IN my opinion,the best way to make sure that you buy the correct one ! So is to replace it with exactly the same part numbers as the one on the car.

For extra assistance, then you can also telephone your online dealer to help in choosing the correct one for your vehicle. Beware of online companies who are not willing to help you. On the whole, a confident honest company will have all contact details at hand to give you the correct advice. In the event of not giving you there contact details then do not buy from them ? Subsequently, they may not be there in two years time ! To cover you in case your battery should go faulty.

What is Cold cranking amps ?

Cold cranking amps or CCA refers to your power rating in terms of its ability to start your vehicle . Supplying electrical power even during extremely cold weather. Naturally, you will can indeed choose a new battery with a rating CCA higher than or equal to car’s original one. This will ensure that your car will continue to operate smoothly even in the harshest winters. Last but not least is the quality of the brand of the car battery that you can buy .

As I have reiterated before, there are many brands to choose from ! But only a handful are reliable and of good quality. In the UK, you can easily find Lucas Premium Batteries for any type of vehicle. Along with other makes and types, this is one of the most cost-effective brands known for its long life and stability.

eric roberts‘s insight:

We  also gave a gift of two Free gift mobility Batteries ?

Just before Christmas. I was delivering a car battery to a customer in Dingle Lancashire the UK. Subsequently, I happened to take the the wrong turning into the neighbors drive. Soon, I realised that I was at the wrong delivery address. Because all that was there was a small wooden stable and a horse.

Consequently, I got out of the van. Soon, I was approached by a lady in her late fifties. To my surprise, she had lost her legs below her knees.As a result, she was walking on her knee stumps. The lady was stood up but only came up to my chest in height. My delivery van is covered with large pictures of mobility batteries for advertising. I noticed that the lady spotted this.

She asked me the price of batteries for her mobility scooter. Unfortunately, she said that she could not afford to buy any new batteries. As her present 12 Volt Battery was old and running down. For this reason, I felt very sad for lady.Hence, and continued to next door to deliver the car battery. Eileen is severely disabled after having both legs amputated.In a motorcycle accident. For this reason, her only means of getting about was on her mobility scooter. Which is battery powered. She does not have any prosthetic limbs for whatever reason. Eileen, relies totally on her mobility scooter. It was very strange to see her mount the scooter.Because she has developed a special knack for lifting herself up. Using, her now very strong arms.

Free gift mobility Batteries

The guy next door told me that Eileen could not afford to buy any new scooter batteries. Especially as how she was practically house bound. This pulled at my heartstrings. Therefore, being a good Christian i decided to give her two Free gift mobility Batteries. I returned to my stores in Halifax, Yorkshire UK and collected the two Free gift mobility Batteries to give to Eileen. I would have been choked to give her the  Free gift mobility Batteries direct and so i called into Eileen’s

neighbour who had bought the original battery.

The guy in and when i told him what i was doing he had a tear in his eye. I gave him the Free gift mobility Batteries, to give to Eileen, when i had gone back to Yorkshire. He telephoned me the next day to say that she could not believe what i had done for her, and she sent me a lovely Christmas card.

As an update to this Eileen is still going strong and looks after some horses for a good friend, she is still getting about on her mobility scooter and the Mobility scooter batteries, that i gave her are also  still going strong.

Winter car battery problems-Your car battery needs care from time to time?

Winter car battery problems

Winter car battery problems

KTVO It don’t take that long and most shops will do it for free just as a courtesy to you and your car  and if your battery

"<yoastmark

is kinda bad or not very good or a little weak, then go ahead and replace it because it’s better now to replace…

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Winter is when your battery is likely to fail

In general most car batteries fail in service during cold weather in winter time, There are many problems that could affect your car battery. With new modern cars with all their electrics you will find that the battery will fail you suddenly, this is because of the large amount of electrics that the modern car battery has to handle, including engine management computers.

In the past if were having freezing nights. Therefore, it would take a car battery a couple of weeks to actually fail. Thus, giving the car owner plenty of time to find a replacement battery. Hence, the problem is now the car battery will fail suddenly.Usually, just where you don’t want it to. Especially, when you are out and about. Many of our customers.Who have a flat battery, will call us out. Because they are stuck in some town centre or shopping mall.

Now we say that the battery should be tested. Consequently, before the winter comes. Or at your regular service period. Predominantly, before the onset of Winter. Thus, we always test the battery and report back. Especially, if there is any signs that the battery may fail. Perhaps, in the near future. Most of our clients will respond to this and replace the battery before they get caught out."<yoastmark

069 Lucas Car Batteries

069 Lucas Car Batteries-Do Lucas Make Their Own car batteries

Premium 069 Lucas Car batteries069 Lucas Car Batteries

So, today’s car battery market is flooded with all kinds of different makes of products. Some makes are household names. Such as 069 Lucas Car Batteries and others are not so well known. All kinds of makes are springing up. Of course,with claims and counter claims about how good their batteries are.

Significantly, one of the driving forces in this has been the internet ! Especially E-bay. This is where you are likely to find the cheapest car battery prices . Subsequently, then the problem is that do you trust what you are buying. I have noticed recently. That the cheapest price for 069 Lucas Car Batteries. Consequently, is not even a new one ! But looks like a re-used product what ever that means ! Many auto owners however will want to buy a quality product. Going for the products that are made by a reputable company. Of course, such as Lucas who make the 069 Lucas Car Batteries.

Are you selling your car ?

The truth is that unless you are selling your car. Then you should stick to a named product that you can trust. Naturally,the better makes will not be the cheapest. But you must be able to rely on the after service. Customers are better off ordering your new one from an actual web-site. Of course, than any other form of internet selling platform. The website will be accountable if you should get a problem with say a delivery that has gone wrong or a faulty battery.

You can even ring up a web-site to confirm that the one that you are buying is the correct one for your car. A few examples of names you can trust would be Lucas batteries. As i have said earlier they do not manufacture their own any more. The rights to sell 069 Lucas Car Batteries were bought by wholesalers Manbat. The company sell two standards. The Classic and the  Premium.

Lucas premium car batteries are a first class product

I have been selling car products now for well over 30 years, longer than I care to remember, and consequently I have seen these companies come and go , but the 069 Lucas Car Batteries has always kept a high standard of quality, and maintained a good high standard in the dealers. The  premium battery is a maintenance free battery (that means you dont have to top them up every two minutes) with calcium/ calcium technology, to cope with the modern car electric systems and slightly higher voltage requirements. This battery is  made by Johnson controls and is in a black casing, which is a recycled product. The  classic is more of a budget battery suitable for the older models of cars and lower engine capacities, this battery could be made by different European  manufacturers, but is selected by Manbat to offer excellent service in use.

As a footnote Johnson Controls have now sold their battery manufacturing side of the business.

069 Lucas Car Batteries

A new battery just fitted in our Halifax depot UK

You know that if you select  069 Lucas Car Batteries that you can rely on the dealer to look after you if you should occur any problems after the purchase, whether in the their store or on their website, beware of other selling platforms on the internet, they may have vanished when a problem raise its ugly head.

038 Car Batteries- Now fitted out with a new label style, This helps with warranty dates

Post Updated 2nd Jan 2014

Lucas 038 Car Batteries from Manbat

038 Car Batteries

038 Car Batteries

lucas has always been a well known name in the field of car electrics. Unfortunately the original company split up and the different sections were sold off or indeed the brand names were sold off. This was the same with the Battery section of the company .The Lucas battery franchise was originally bought by Energy batteries in the Corby area, unfortunately Energy went into the hands of the receivers. The Lucas franchise was then bought by Manbat in 2009 and trades its own battery products under the name of Lucas. Although Lucas do not make their own 038 Car Batteries Manbat use batteries of excellent quality for their premium 038 Car Batteries range and the Classic range of batteries. We  at www. batteriesontheweb.co.uk  are the Yorkshire dealers for these excellent products.

Lucas batteries

“Now, in its most noticeable move to date, Manbat has made fundamental changes to the existing packaging. Core to the re-branding objective was to make the Lucas name and green colour scheme far more prominent than on the previous design, which only carried a small Lucas logo with a hint of green. The new design however, brings the green that the brand has been historically associated with and the Lucas name to the fore through an attractive design that stands out from the competition and emphasis the brands heritage”...http://www.totalkitcar.com/2012/08/16/power-packed-new-packaging/

The 038 Car Batteries also fits other battery applications. The 038 Car Batteries are used mainly on classic cars. The early mini’s and Austin Alegro cars were all fitted with the 038 Car Batteries. The battery also fitted cars made by Vauxhall cars. This includes the best selling Viva range in the 1960’s and some of the Triumph groups cars. This included the Triumph Spitfires and saloon cars such as the herald and the Vitesse.

Many battery companies change labels every so often. It is a way of telling when a battery was made. This helps them with warranty claims. Many claims are rejected because they can tell how old the label is.

Motorcycle Batteries Maintenance Tips-Look after your bike battery?

Motorcycle Batteries Maintenance Tips

Motorcycle Batteries Maintenance Tips

"<yoastmark

This article  explains some of the pitfalls about buying a motorcycle battery. Motor cyclists should be careful when buying a new battery.But i do not want to be scare mongering. As long as you follow simple rules. Hence, it will be a perfectly safe operation to carry out. Your new battery can be bought at a cheap Motor-cycle battery price online. Thus, with a next working day delivery. Thousands of these batteries are bought online every year.Consequently, without any problems at all.

“Battery failure isn’t just inconvenient, it can often lead to dangerous problems. Before you take your bike far from home, learn what happened to Sarah.Anytime you take your motorcycle on a trip, you should make sure the battery is in optimum condition. If you have a typical, conventional battery, take a few moments to ensure that fluid levels are adequate before heading out. Remove the caps to see if the cells appear dry; if they are, add clean distilled water. Additionally, look for any signs of terminal corrosion and leaking acid, including tarnished chrome and faded paint.”If you aren’t confident in your ability to service a conventional battery, consider buying a sealed variety. These maintenance-free motorcycle batteries are ideal for people who like riding their bikes but don’t particularly enjoy using Batteries Maintenance Tips and working on them”

         Motorcycle batteries are very safe

Motor cycle batteries? which make or type?

The motorcycle battery market is flooded. Hence, with all sorts of makes and different types of batteries. Thus, it can be very complicated. Of course, I think that the best way to go about buying one of these batteries. Hence, is to keep the job as simple as possible. For this reason, by trying to replace the part number of the battery that you are replacing. So, like for like.

Differing manufactures are not such a problem, except that some motorcycle batteries come with differing part numbers, I was thinking of Varta and perhaps Bosch. A few years ago a European standard battery part number was introduced to try to make all the battery manufacturers use the same number, but this seems to have fallen apart and you can get three different numbers for the same battery.

The most common part numbers are on the Japanese bikes and will look like,”YTX9BS”; this to me is the most common type of battery. The European number found on a Varta will look like “53030”, so the numbers will differ depending where your bike is from. You will find though that most Japanese bikes will have the YTX9BS lettering, but BMW’s will have the 53030 Varta numbers.

In any case you will find it easier if you replace the battery that is fitted to your bike, will be best practice and unless you know what you are doing please don’t try to be clever and update or uprate the battery that you have fitted to the bike.
