Storing Tomorrow's Power Today with Lead Batteries

by ACS Engineering ACS Engineering
Lead acid batteries are one of the breakthrough innovations which have been widely used for various applications. The concept was born in 1800s and nurtured through various scientists to give rise to the models we see today. The lead acid battery was first used for lighting up carriages of trains halted on stations. Today these are commonly used in lighting, ignition, starting of automobiles and as a back up in case of power failures thus finding place in battery operated vehicles, submarines, computer systems etc. Rechargeability is an important feature which makes these one of the choices for power in many applications. It is achieved through a reversible reaction between lead and sulfuric acid included in the set up. However, with continued usage, these batteries lose their ability to get charged due to a phenomenon called sulfation. This has given rise to lead battery recycling plants in order to reuse the defunct materials.

In today’s fast world, the operations in general has been multiplied exponentially due to which the demands of new batteries too have increased. This culminates into piles of lead batteries which need to be recycled so that the materials can be supplied to the manufacturers for producing new lots.
 
Appropriate processes are needed to ensure that lead conversion is done with maximum efficiency. If not achieved correctly, there is an issue of lead spillage in the environment leading to a greater danger to life through lead poisoning in the ecological chain. Today although there are lead acid battery recycling plants in India, the facilities seem inadequate. Sources say that while some are making use of controlled facilities for the recycling, there are other small and medium set ups which undertake the disposal in the open leading to severe pollution. The first ones to bear the impact on health are the human resources involved in these improper activities.

ACS engineering is a lead acid battery recycling plant manufacturer where technology is combined with responsibility towards the environment. ACS lead tech, the technology design firm has an edge in the lead industry with the blend of in depth knowledge of lead, processes and strong mechanical designs. The systems are fully automated with reduced or zero involvement of manpower. Thus, ACS provides the turnkey solutions to lead battery recycling plants with an element of safety.

Another critical point one must not miss is the demand and supply of Lead in the system. Primary production is sought from the source of mined lead ores while secondary source is obtained by recovering of recycled resources. However, India being the developing country, not enough sources are available for recycling, thus making it inevitable to import lead for sufficing the growing requirements. The cutting edge concepts of ACS for the lead recycling value chain include smelting and refining, Ingot casting machines and battery breaking plant operations. With this, lead acid battery recycling plants in India can effectively recover maximum amount of lead materials and put them back in the lead value chain.

Having 35 years of operations, ACS is a recognized name in the global lead industry. The company is a complete one stop place with its environmentally sound technologies and turnkey solutions including project engineering, designing, plant commissioning logistics and manpower supply for the lead process chain. The portfolio includes machinery coupled with associated services and support thus making it the most preferred lead acid battery recycling plant manufacturer for the customers.
