Batteries are electrochemical storage devices that transform chemical energy into electrical current. Those that are used in the equipment of large industries, manufacturing plants, warehouses or mines in order to operate as efficiently as possible are called industrial batteries.
Industrial batteries provide constant power over an extended period of time, i.e., industrial batteries and cells are designed for greater power and durability.
Within the diversity of shapes, sizes and capacity that exist in the world of these batteries, lithium industrial batteries have undoubtedly positioned themselves as one of the best options for industries.
Lithium is a key chemical element in new technologies, thanks to its strength and durability. Lithium-ion batteries are used by leading companies in energy storage solutions such as Quartux, due to their great advantages compared to other conventional energy saving systems, mainly in terms of efficiency and cost optimization.
Due to their high capacity, industrial batteries have a higher performance for much longer, so they are used in plants, distribution centers and in general in demanding industries, such as mining, power generation companies or cement companies.
These devices have different capacities and sizes. For example, industrial batteries for forklifts and electric forklifts are specially designed to provide high resistance and the necessary power for heavy work and the operation of production lines. They are also often used in marine, stationary engines and in railway networks for lighting or signaling.
Thanks to their power and capacity, industrial batteries are also used in uninterruptible power supply systems, telephony, telecommunications, electric vehicles, emergency lighting services, and solar and wind power transformer substations, among others.
Although the most common industrial batteries are lead-acid, vented liquid and alkaline (nickel-cadmium or nickel-iron), new options have appeared with advances in scientific and technological development. Such is the case of industrial lithium batteries, which have been gaining ground in the market, thanks to their high efficiency and quality.
There are many types of industrial batteries, according to their characteristics and their potential to adjust to technological and industrial needs, as well as their capacity to provide a continuous supply of energy to different equipment. In this sense, two main classifications can be distinguished: stationary and electric traction batteries.
Stationary industrial batteries are those that are kept permanently charged by means of a self-regulating rectifier, are discharged very infrequently and are fully recharged by the rectifier. Their discharge is very low and they have very long periods in which they maintain a full charge, since they are permanently connected to the chargers for industrial batteries. These batteries are used in backup systems, security, electrical distribution, solar or wind energy.
As for industrial batteries for use in electric traction, they are designed to withstand a large sequence of discharges and then recharge. These batteries are mainly used in powering electric motors of forklifts, forklifts and electric vehicles, among others.
Industrial lithium batteries offer great advantages over other systems in terms of energy efficiency, energy savings and cost optimization. These batteries can easily replace conventional lead-acid industrial batteries in vehicles such as electric forklifts and forklift trucks, among others, to optimize industrial processes.
Why replace traditional batteries with lithium batteries? In recent years, the sale of industrial lithium batteries to replace lead acid batteries has increased significantly. Among the most important reasons for doing so is that the more a conventional battery is discharged, the more its driving capacity decreases, which affects speed and lifting capacity. In industrial lithium batteries, on the other hand, the energy supply is permanently maintained at its maximum, even if there is little charge left in the battery.
In addition, industrial lithium batteries are up to 30% more efficient than traditional batteries. Their energy density is much higher and they contain three times more energy on average than standard batteries, so they store more in less space, which has made them the best alternative for energy storage.
For these reasons, companies such as Quartux have positioned themselves in the energy storage market, since they use the technology of industrial lithium batteries to generate an energy saving system, improve the quality of energy and ensure the supply, since, through its intelligent energy saving solution, it is possible to avoid blackouts and interruptions in the supply of electricity.
Thanks to their efficiency, speed and ability to provide a constant voltage without slowing down machines while discharging, lithium-ion batteries are a very competitive energy source. This makes them especially efficient in industrial application, where maximum efficiency of energy storage systems is required.
The design of industrial lithium batteries allows them to have a much faster charging capacity, so they operate automatically and continuously, thus meeting energy needs with greater energy savings, in addition to being very safe and reliable systems, such as the platform designed by Quartux to optimize energy consumption in companies.
Quartux has created the best solution for saving and storing energy using industrial lithium batteries. Among the many benefits of the Quartux system are the optimization of energy consumption in companies and the design of the most suitable batteries for each case. This platform works with clean energy, is quick to install, modular and adaptable, and has instant backup.
The ability to operate with high regeneration cycles and the high-performance design of the industrial lithium batteries allows extending the backup time of the systems and avoiding overcharging and temperature increase. In addition, the use of industrial lithium batteries represents a lower environmental impact, as these batteries waste less energy, do not emit carbon dioxide and do not pose a risk of acid spills.
Finally, another reason for the increase in the purchase of industrial lithium batteries is that they eliminate the maintenance of lead-acid batteries and the costly process involved in repairing industrial batteries. Lithium batteries do not require maintenance and have a much longer service life, up to three times longer than lead-acid batteries.
In short, systems that use industrial lithium batteries are synonymous with quality and can meet the energy demands of the most difficult applications. Contact us and find out the smartest way to save and store energy in your company with the Quartux lithium-ion battery system.
