Looking For Battery Testing Equipment? Consider Renting From Protec

  • Uncategorized

When a battery discharges, the plates turn into lead sulfate and the electrolyte turns into water. The electrolyte’s specific gravity also decreases because of this chemical reaction. This characteristic is measured during maintenance to determine the battery’s charge state. This is a quick method of weeding out which batteries need to be recharged. It is important to keep batteries fully charged and ready in case an emergency happens.


Technicians use a hydrometer to quickly determine the electrolyte’s specific gravity. If you are looking for a good tool, you might want to consider checking out the 
SBS 2002 Hydrometer. This tool uses a system that measures specific gravity by measuring the index of light refraction. This tool can significantly reduce labor costs on battery testing because instead of taking several minutes measuring, it can give results within 3 seconds. This makes it ideal for testing several batteries found in substations, power plants and industrial facilities.
