T2 Technology, a deep cycle battery, works well with wind turbine and solar systems. Three significant developments from developer Trojan Batteries make the devices noteworthy:
Alpha Plus Paste, a proprietary, high-density formulation optimizes porosity development in the active material using it more effectively to sustain battery performance over longer periods. The announcement introduces a patent-pending T2 metal agent into Alpha Plus Paste further strengthening the electrochemical processing capabilities of Trojan’s Alpha Plus Paste. Alpha Plus Paste with T2 Technology increases sustained capacity and total overall ampere-hours resulting in more operating power for an application.
The battery’s grid is a lead antimony alloy mixture formulated for use with the paste and grid frame. Thick grids reinforce the strength of the frame and reduce overall corrosion. The overall grid configuration enhances current flow through the grid network for battery performance, reducing downtime and lowering overall maintenance costs.
Maxguard T2 Separator features a multi-rib geometry which keeps acid channels open longer enhancing electrochemical processing while reducing the risk of stratification. A rubber-based material inhibits antimony transfer between the positive grids and negative plates. A newly fortified, thick back web provides even greater separator strength resulting in a battery with increased protection against failures caused by separator degradation.
