Sustainable technology showcased
12 December 2012
Hoppecke Industrial Batteries will have a substantial presence at CeMat, where it will display the very latest innovations in battery technology that tie in with the show's focus on sustainable and innovative products.
Centre-stage will be the company's patented trak air battery system, which enables forklift fleet owners to reduce their carbon footprint while saving on battery replacement costs. At the same time, battery temperature levels are reduced by around 10Â°C and energy consumption is cut by trak air reducing the need for battery filling down to four to six times a year, cutting battery gassing and offering over 30% savings on electricity.
In addition, charging times are reduced by around 2.5 hours thanks to the trak air high frequency charger which incorporates a microprocessor.
At the same time, water consumption is reduced by up to 70%, giving the batteries a much longer life and minimising the need for battery disposal.
