Title (EN) LIGHTWEIGHT INDUSTRIAL GRID AND PLATE, BATTERY INCORPORATING SAME, AND METHOD OF MAKING THE PLATE
(FR) GRILLE-PLAQUE INDUSTRIELLE LEGERE, ACCUMULATEUR INCORPORANT LEDIT ELEMENT, ET PROCEDE DE FABRICATION DE LADITE GRILLE-PLAQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A reduced weight industrial grid, plate, battery incorporating the same, and method of fabricating said plates. The inventive plates incorporate a lightweight expanded metal grid which comprises expanded cut diamonds that are significantly larger than those traditionally utilized in such grids. A fine strand plastic mesh forced into the active material during the pasting process operates to effectively retain the paste in the large diamonds of the grid. The resulting plate and the battery incorporating such plates is lightweight relative to prior art industrial batteries for comparable applications.
(FR)L'invention concerne une grille-plaque industrielle légère d'encombrement réduit, un accumulateur incorporant ledit élément, et un procédé de fabrication de ladite grille-plaque. Les plaques de l'invention incorporent une grille légère en métal déployé comprenant des losanges découpés déployés sensiblement plus grands que ceux généralement utilisés dans de telles grilles. Un treillis en plastique à mailles fines emprisonné dans la matière active lors du processus de collage a pour fonction de retenir effectivement la colle dans les grands losanges de la grille. La plaque ainsi obtenue et l'accumulateur qui l'incorpore sont légers relativement aux accumulateurs antérieurs pour des applications comparables.
