In theory, the chains of electrochemical reactions are 100% accurate. In practice, certain amounts of lead sulphate remain on the electrodes after each cycle. In other words, some active materials remain as PbSO4 after the charge. With the pass of time, this “AMORPHOUS” sulphate becomes a “CRYSTALLINE” sulphate.

This crystalline sulphate cannot be reconverted into active material again, since it adheres to the surface of the plates; thus causing their “suffocation” and significantly reducing the surfaces of active material where electrochemical reactions take place.

It is the recovery of the capacity of the battery to store electrochemical energy by breaking the crystalline sulphate down thanks to the electrical properties of Maroo MCS regenerators. These properties craze the crystals, reduce them and, consequently, the electrolyte density increases; thus, the internal resistance decreases and, finally, the battery is restored.
There are electrical and electrochemical systems. In any of these two cases, it becomes evident that it is necessary to break down the crystalline lead sulphate build-up to restore the battery.
An efficient electrical system is based on the application of electric power (high frequency) with a certain structure and in accordance with multiple factors which the software reads from the battery. It must be taken into account that there are electrical systems in the market which do not provide a certain electrical structure or give uncontrolled algorithms, so they are not useful or efficient to desulphate batteries. There are also other systems which, leaving aside their high price, are based on the use of chemical additives and whose general objective is to temporarily improve the conductivity of the batteries while they do not run down. However, they cannot break down the crystals.
Of course. The obtained restoration level must be measurable. In order to measure the results, two different methods can be used. The most accurate way is carried out with a discharger which allows you to measure the full discharge time of the battery (100%) before and after the process. The alternative method, which is generally applied to uninterruptible power batteries due to the fact that they cannot be disconnected, is carried out through an impedance test.
Any type of lead-acid and nickel-cadmium batteries. Any application: traction, solar, wind, stationary, emergency and starter batteries, UPS units, etc. Any type of electrolyte: vented LIQUID, starved AGM, gelled GEL.
It is not possible to restore a battery which has suffered structural damage, electrolyte reduction caused by electrolysis, corrosion or short-circuits on the plates or loss of the active materials of the electrodes.

It depends on the initial state of the battery. If an annual restoration schedule is applied, the service life of the battery can be doubled or even tripled.

Without any doubt. Just think about the huge saving with regard to the avoidance of purchasing new batteries, the reduction in your energy bill or the elimination of technical problems and unexpected maintenance related costs.
As the number of used batteries increases, the amount of batteries being disposed also increases. Extending their service life helps to reduce the consumption of heavy metals which are highly polluting. The auxiliary materials used for the manufacture of batteries fall within the category of highly toxic second-degree waste, since they cannot be completely reused. For all these reasons, battery restoration means a significant contribution to the protection and the improvement of the environment.
