Forklift Truck Battery Preventative Maintenance

Typical Work Performed During Reconditioning

  • Steam clean / remove corrosion
  • Equalize charge
  • Adjust specific gravity
  • Discharge test
  • Replace or repair defective cells
  • Remove sulphation
  • Replace broken vent plugs
  • Replace cables and connectors
  • Clean and paint

Remember, reconditioning during early detection can often double useful life; if you delay you may totally destroy the battery and damage your truck’s drive motor as well as other electrical components.

Battery Cleaning / Wash Service

We offer on-site battery cleaning and battery washing services, which will help lengthen service life and eliminate environmental concerns. We also sell battery washing equipment.

What happens if you don’t clean batteries?

  • Battery life can be reduced
  • Corrosion can cause battery cells to rupture and leak
  • Metal cases can corrode away
  • Electrolytes can damage operator’s clothes and irritate the skin
  • Voltage leaks to ground can create nuisance electrical faults
  • Lifting ears can weaken causing potential safety issues

How often should a battery be cleaned?

This depends mainly on how well the batteries are watered. In many instances an annual wash is adequate. However, if over-watering occurs regularly and/or it is a dusty or dirty environment, more frequent washing may be required.
