Santa Fe Springs, CA (PRWEB) May 04, 2011
Trojan Battery Company, the world’s leading manufacturer of deep-cycle technology batteries, today announced that a four-year warranty is now offered for its TransPower™ ST1000 starting AGM battery for the commercial transportation markets. The increased warranty coverage provides customers the lowest total cost of ownership available over the life of the battery.
“Enhancing the TransPower ST1000 warranty offers transportation markets, such as truck and bus, the confidence of knowing that their Trojan battery is covered by one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry,” said Elke Hirschman, vice president of marketing for Trojan Battery. “Trojan AGM batteries are designed with advanced battery technology that delivers dependable power with long battery life. With over 85 years of battery manufacturing experience, Trojan has become the leading supplier of high-performance AGM batteries that offer the financial and technological benefits required by transportation customers.”
The Trojan TransPower ST1000 is a sealed, maintenance-free AGM 31 starting battery engineered for rugged durability, outstanding cranking power and long life. Design features that contribute to the overall performance and durability of the TransPower ST1000 include an advanced paste formulation, heavy-duty plate design and rugged polypropylene case.
Advanced Paste Formulation
Battery performance and longevity are influenced by the physical structure of the active material. Delivering high cranking power requires a paste formulation with high porosity characteristics and maximum surface area. Longer battery life requires higher density paste characteristics. The Trojan TransPower ST 1000 features a high-density paste formulation which optimizes density, porosity and surface area achieving the right balance of power and longevity.
Heavy-Duty Plate Design
The Trojan TransPower ST1000 is constructed using a heavy-duty plate design that is thicker than standard starting battery plates. Engineered with a combination of high-density paste and a gravity cast thick wire grid design, the plate construction delivers nearly double the battery life of a standard flooded starting battery. The heavy-duty plates are encased in a glass mat envelope minimizing the risk of internal shorts. Additionally, the plate design tolerates extreme weather conditions through a wide range of operating temperatures.
Within the plate design is a grid network constructed with thick wires which are highly resistant to corrosion which is a typical failure mode in batteries. The wires are arranged in a sunburst array architecture that ensures peak performance by guiding the battery’s power to a focal point of charge resulting in 1,000 cold cranking amps. The overall grid framework is manufactured using a gravity cast process to produce a grid with uniform properties throughout the framework ensuring maximum recharge efficiency and long life.
Rugged Polypropylene Case
Trojan’s TransPower ST100 is packaged in a thick-walled, durable polypropylene case that is rigid to keep the internal components of the battery compressed. This case structure effectively protects the plates from damage that is caused by shock and vibration. The polypropylene case is resilient against engine oil, gasoline and other road chemicals including salts and magnesium chloride.
