Service and maintenance of conventional accumulator batteries

Valbis Trade Is capable  of servicing and testing accumulator batteries of all types according to the following standards:

IEEE450 – IEEE Recommended Practice for Maintenance, Testing, and Replacement of Vented Lead-Acid Batteries for Stationary Applications

IEEE 1188 – IEEE Recommended Practice for Maintenance, Testing, and Replacement of Valve-Regulated Lead- Acid (VRLA) Batteries forStationary Applications

IEEE 1106 – IEEE Recommended Practice for Installation, Maintenance, Testing, and Replacement of Vented Nickel-Cadmium Batteries for Stationary Applications



TORKEL 860 is used for systems ranging from 12 to 480 V, and discharging can proceed at up to 110 A. If higher current is desired, two or more TORKEL 860 units or extra load units, TXL, can be linked together. Discharging can take place at constant current, constant power, constant resistance or in accordance with a pre-selected load profile.

Features & Benefits:

  • Batteries can be tested „in service“
  • Unit adjusts to include load currents in the test parameters
  • User adjustable alarm and shutdown points to avoid excessive discharge
  • Easily expandable for larger battery banks using TXL extra load units
  • View test parameters/results “real time” as testing progresses using TORKEL WIN software
  • Easily save results to a PC for analysis, report generation and storage


HIOKI 3554

Hioki portable battery testers support the maintenance of UPS and storage batteries critical to the life support of all businesses. The 3554 sets the standard for assessing the deterioration and remaining life of lead-acid batteries by giving a complete diagnosis via battery resistance testing.

The thresholds for determining the pass/fail condition of a battery depends on the specifications and standards of the battery manufacturer, battery type, capacity, etc. It is important and necessary to always conduct battery testing against the internal resistance and terminal voltage of a new or reference battery. In some cases, it may be difficult to determine the deterioration state of sealed lead acid batteries which demonstrates smaller changes in internal resistance than traditional open type (liquid) lead-acid or alkaline batteries.
