Battery Trojan 5SHP-GEL (12V, 125Ah)
The Trojan 5SHP-GEL battery is a deep cycling lead acid battery for renewable energy/hybrid/emergency power systems.
Sealed (Gel) lead-acid battery technology.
The essence of the operation of a lead-acid battery is reduced to the transfer of lead sulfate, which covers both plates of the battery in a discharged state, under the influence of a direct electric current into metallic lead on the cathode:
PbSO 4 + 2e \u003d Pb + SO 4 2-
and tetravalent lead oxide on the anode:
PbSO 4 - 2e + 2H 2 O \u003d PbO 2 + 4H + + SO 4 2-
Charging the battery leads to the fact that the initially identical electrodes become chemically different and a potential difference appears between them. If the plates of a charged battery are connected with a conductor, then the reverse process will take place - a discharge, and an electric current will flow through the conductor.
The lead-acid battery recycling cycle is the most complete and successful . Today, over 97% of battery lead is recycled in the US. Due to the simplicity of the processes, more than 70% of the weight of the battery is recycled. Over 50% of the annual lead production is recycled lead.
