Title (EN) LOW PROFILE MANIFOLD FOR SINGLE POINT WATERING SYSTEM FOR LEAD-ACID BATTERIES
(FR) COLLECTEUR À HAUTEUR RÉDUITE POUR SYSTÈME D'APPORT D'EAU À POINT UNIQUE POUR BATTERIES PLOMB-ACIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A single point watering assembly for a monobloc battery having a plurality of cell access ports each have a top edge. The assembly includes a manifold and a plurality of valve cartridges. The manifold overlies the access ports and includes extensions each extending into one of the access ports. Each valve cartridge is supported by one of the manifold extensions and is located below the top edge of the respective access port. Consequently, the assembly presents a low profile extending above the battery.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un ensemble d'apport d'eau à point unique pour une batterie monobloc comprenant une pluralité d'orifices d'accès de pile présentant chacun un bord supérieur. L'ensemble comprend un collecteur et une pluralité de cartouches à vanne. Le collecteur recouvre les orifices d'accès et comprend des prolongements s'étendant chacun dans l'un des orifices d'accès. Chaque cartouche à vanne est supportée par l'un des prolongements de collecteur et est placée au-dessous du bord supérieur de l'orifice d'accès respectif. En conséquence, l'ensemble présente une hauteur réduite s'étendant au-dessus de la batterie.
