VRLA Battery Degradation
How a Single Bad Battery Can Cause Thermal Runaway
Our white paper Valve Regulated Lead-Acid Battery Degradation: How a Single Bad Battery Can Cause Thermal Runaway was written as a guide for UPS owners on how to properly support UPS batteries to prevent a thermal runaway condition.
While a majority of our customers are aware of what thermal runaway is and how to maintain their batteries, we have come across a few instances where the batteries are in thermal runaway. In most of these cases, there isn’t a certain person left in charge of the unit. The responsibility is not on a single person, or even a team. This creates an environment where the UPS or batteries will go without maintenance until they are in alarm, at which point could already have a serious issue.
This white paper will detail:
- What a VRLA battery is
- How they are utilized in an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
- What thermal runaway is
- How to prevent thermal runaway
- NFPA 1 Chapter 52 and how it applies to a room with batteries
- Proper installation of batteries
