Hoppecke Industrial Batteries has launched trak | uplift, the latest in vented lead-acid technology. Combining quality, durability and economy, the new battery range provides the ideal solution for busy single shift operations.

At the heart of all Hoppecke trak | uplift products is active carbon. In conjunction with other innovative developments this specially matched active material promotes higher current discharge characteristics, improved fast charging capabilities and increased service life for cyclic applications.

New innovations include a 3D enhanced electrode design plus a protective shell separator, which prevents deposits of free active materials accumulating on the negative electrode, known as mossing - a major cause of short circuits. A pole feed-through, with a labyrinth system specially developed to cope with the demands of industrial forklifts in daily use, means that trak | uplift products are robust enough to withstand the highest mechanical stresses and strains. The result is reliable operation with reduced maintenance requirements. By comparison with conventional lead-acid batteries trak | uplift products have considerably longer top-up intervals, which translates into longer maintenance intervals and lower operating costs.

As logistics operations contend with the challenges of boosting productivity whilst maximising resources to keep costs low, Hoppecke's aim is to make their budgets work harder with energy-efficient motive power batteries that deliver day in, day out.

Stuart Browne, Operations Director - Sales and Service at Hoppecke UK, said: "The new trak | uplift range represents the cutting edge of our vented lead-acid technology and is a universal, high quality, low-cost solution designed to keep a wide range of equipment operating at peak performance.

"Our extensive analysis shows that trak | uplift is one of the most dependable batteries on the market, since competitor systems cannot match its longevity and deteriorate more rapidly over five years."

Suitable for industrial trucks, utility vehicles, agricultural and construction machinery, lifting platforms, cleaning machines and cold storage equipment, Hoppecke's trak| uplift is a cost-optimised basic solution with the capability to retrofit extra components at any time. By upgrading with trak | air components, for example, operators can enjoy lower energy and water top-up costs plus enhanced availability due to reduced charging times.

The trak | uplift save battery reduces maintenance costs with the aid of innovative technology, whilst the trak | uplift save+ provides optimal protection against external influences and is therefore ideal for use in especially dirty environments. The top of the range is the trak | uplift iQ system, which incorporates an intelligent controller unit.

All trak | uplift batteries can be used in conjunction with Hoppecke's monitoring and measuring systems. The ultimate service life is achieved when trak| uplift batteries are used in combination with Hoppecke chargers.
