The Environmental Choice for Power
Designed for light- to medium-duty applications, the ENVIROLINKTM is a valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) battery designed with employee safety and environmental friendliness in mind. Completely sealed, the ENVIROLINK gel electrolyte battery never needs electrolyte or water added.
Hawker immobilized the electrolyte in each cell and replaced the vent cap with a permanent pressure release valve, to help ensure the battery would be both leak-proof and spill-proof. These safety features also improve convenience and efficiency, since ENVIROLINK batteries can be recharged at the point of use.
To eliminate water loss, Hawker utilizes a leading-edge technology known as a recombination process. The process diffuses oxygen into the sealed gel cells, which allow the oxygen to circulate more freely.
ENVIROLINK battery benefits include:
- Environment-friendly design. Thanks to the enclosed, sealed design, ENVIROLINK batteries are leak-proof and spill-proof.
- Improved employee safety. ENVIROLINK batteries provide a safer motive solution for employees, because there is no excessive gassing during the charging cycle.
- Reduced operating costs. As no watering is required, watering costs are eliminated. Since the units are sealed and can be conveniently charged at the point of use, there’s no expense required for special ventilation.
