How to Desulfate a Battery- Introduction, Methods And Time
Sulfation is the process that results in a lead-acid battery, not being fully charged. This condition is not something new for starter batteries in cars driven in the city as these batteries are meant for many tasks. These tasks might include driving those cars with load hungry accessories. As a result, the motors in an idle position or low speed cannot charge these batteries up to their brim.
Some devices operating on these batteries might have a similar problem, which can also result in even a full night charge not being enough. Solar cells, wheelchairs, and wind turbines do not always provide for sufficient charge, which can also lead to this sulfation.
Sulfation, in technical terms, is the formation of small sulfate crystals that are normal and not harmful. But, in the case of a long period of time when the battery is left uncharged, the amorphous lead sulfate converts itself into a stable crystalline and deposits itself on the negative plates. In turn, this procedure can lead to the growth of large crystals that hinder the battery's performance. This performance is hampered due to the reduction of the batter's active material.
This phenomenon, which can consequently result in ruining your battery to shreds, can be reversed by a procedure known as Desulphation. This process can aim to do wonders for the customers looking for options in this arena. One important thing to note is that these technologies are not a hundred percent certain in bringing your battery back to life. However, taking the chances of probability can prove beneficial incidental maintenance in many cases.
This Desulfation can be done by a wide range of methods such as the short high current pulses method, STAMP, MIcrocontrollers, and the 555 timer method. These methods can include various procedures, one of which is the electricity pulse method. These electricity pulses of low power but high frequency are sent into the battery at regular intervals of time. The rhythmic resonance created by the plates causes the crystal deposit caused by sulfation to split, and the sulfate comes back to the electrolyte solution.
The response might be in the form of overheating, discharge of various toxic gases, and also a possible blast in severe cases. Hence, if you want to save the battery from reaching this end, make sure to take the necessary precautions. These precautions include making sure that the pulse conditioning is utilized; this utilization involves putting short blasts of high voltage at regular intervals. These short blasts make for sufficient energy required to move the crystals without excessively raising the battery's overall temperature during this process. But, then also, this is not a full-proof method and can not show specific results.
