Description

The Absolyte GP is qualified to stack horizontally up to eight high. The post seal/cover seal design can detect leaks 1000 times smaller than the eye can see through use of the super-sensitive helium leak detection system. The environmentally friendly positive grid alloy provides reduced hazardous material content, compared with the Absolyte IIP, and allows for global recyling. It's patented lead-calcium-tin-silver positive grid alloy provides long life in both float and cycling applications as well as outstanding recovery from deep discharges. The Absolyte GP is application ready for use in telecommunications, Uninterruptible power systems, railroad signal and communication, photovoltaics and alternative energy systems. Provides high capicity in a small footprint which frees up valuable floor space for other equipment. The modular steel tray is easy to install and the jar and cover are heat sealed and bead smoothed for a more reliable seal. Finally, its post access is optimized for ease of maintenance and assessment of battery health.
