Do you need Hydrocaps?

HYDROCAPS are a must for lead-acid battery users. Just look at the increased safety, reduced maintenance, increased battery longevity and reliability as well as tactile feedback regarding the state of charge of the battery’s individual cells. In the long run HYDROCAPS will also save you money and should be considered necessary basic equipment for any system using lead-acid batteries.

How do Hydrocaps work?

Storage batteries (lead- acid batteries) give off hydrogen while charging and discharging and even when standing idle. If the hydrogen accumulates in a battery compartment, room or a depression at the ceiling it can explode if ignited by a spark, flame or an arcing contact.  As little as 4% hydrogen gas in the air is considered explosive (69 cubic inches of hydrogen in one cubic foot of air).
If you place a catylator unit, high in these areas, it will combine the hydrogen with the available oxygen producing heat and steam in small amounts. Internal temperature can reach 300F (150C) for each percent of hydrogen accumulated.

Will Hydrocaps fit your battery?

Since different batteries have different capsizes and styles, the HYDROCAPS must be fitted for a particular battery.  Hydrocap Corp., based out of Miami, helps every customer select the right size, shape and overcharge rate for their battery system.  Specific simple information provided by the customer about their battery helps make sure you get the HYDROCAPS that fit your battery.
