Most lead-acid battery additives contain EDTA, or ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid has always been known to dissolve the lead sulfate layer on the plates. There are, however, two downsides to this:
- EDTA usually comes in powder form, or as a solution. With manufacturers tending to favour sealed maintenance-free type batteries, there is no chance to introduce EDTA to the battery in the first place.
- EDTA works by forming a complex compound with the lead sulfate layer on the plates. While this removes the insulating layer, the active material that had formed lead sulfate will not be reconverted once the battery is charged. In principle, the insulating layer of lead sulfate is removed; but active material, needed for an efficient battery, is sacrificed in the process.
EDTA reacts with the lead sulfate to form the complex compound above. The plates are cleaned, but active material is not returned to the battery.
The complex compound formed by breaking the lead sulfate bond.
Battery life is only extended temporarily with the removal of the lead sulfate crystals and increase of reaction surface area, but the lifespan of the battery cannot be maximized where active material is not returned to the battery.
Our Infinitum Battery Desulfators however, use a different process which generates Amplitude Modulated Pulses at the resonance frequency of the crystals to shatter the covalent bonds that hold it together. This allows the lead sulfate to be reconverted once the battery is charged. A battery free from lead sulfate crystals will have its lifespan stretched to its maximum! No more premature failure due to sulfation!
Why Desulfators Are Better Than Battery Additives?
- A reusable technology, made to last and to be reused over and over again – you’ll only need to buy it once.
- A better technology, a true life span optimization and not a temporal one.
- It is cheaper to buy with no maintenance needed.
- It’s easier to use – simply install it and you’re done!
- It’s safer, no contact with caustic chemicals.
