Benefits of LiFeP04 for electric forklifts

- Advertisment -

Chase Technologies is so convinced of the benefits of lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, that the company seeks to convert 50% of the current electric forklift market from lead-acid to LiFeP04 batteries within five years. The company’s main focus is the provision of energy storage in the form of lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries for forklifts and other battery-operated heavy equipment such as cleaning equipment, and related battery chargers.

 

Not only is LiFePO4 the most stable Li-ion battery technology available, it is also the least energy-dense. The company is therefore able to incorporate the inherent increased weight of the battery into the counterweight ballast of the forklift for the required stability and safety.

The company has an exclusive distribution agreement with the highest-volume producer of heavy-duty LiFePO4 Li-ion batteries globally. These range from small 25,6 V 135 Ah units, right up to 80 V 700 Ah units. Each battery is supplied with an integrated battery monitoring system (BMS) which safely manages the charge and discharge of the battery, while ensuring maximum possible lifespan and have a five-year, 12 000 hour guarantee.

The battery packs have an optional integrated telematics system for remote monitoring and fault-finding. They have been designed and manufactured specifically for the arduous operating conditions found in most forklift operations. The company has a comprehensive stockholding of both complete battery modules and spare parts, including harnesses, and components for the BMS.
