ecoFORCE AGM (Absorbent Glass Material) is the ideal battery for micro hybrid cars with Start& Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration and other fuel saving technologies.
The operation of all these instruments depends on the presence of a battery which provides optimum efficiency operating mainly in extreme cycling conditions.
The main feature which differentiates an ecoFORCE AGM battery from a conventional one is gas recombination technology.
Water dissociates into hydrogen and oxygen in a conventional flooded lead battery when it is recharged. The two gases are released through the caps and the level of electrolyte decreases in the battery. ecoFORCE, instead, exploits the recombination principle. By using a special, very fine separator (Absorbent Glass Material) seeped in a controlled amount of electrolyte, the oxygen released from the positive plate due to the dissociation of water during recharging can migrate to the negative plate where it is fixed to then recombine with hydrogen and form water again. In principle, this establishes a closed electrochemical cycle without gas emissions outside and without consuming water.
It is a simple system that requires high constructive accuracy and careful selection of components in order to work perfectly. Crucial are the plate-mat system compression and the purity of components.
