Fahrenheit batteries are designed for high-heat energy storage
The exclusive Fahrenheit battery design has shown to last up to 3 times
longer in high heat applications than standard VRLA batteries at 140°F. This not only
saves significant cost from reducing the need of expensive cooling
systems, but also conserves energy that powers these systems while
reducing the systems CO2 footprint.
Deka Fahrenheit batteries are designed to survive in the uncontrolled high
temperature environments typical of telecommunication and
switchgear outside plant cabinets. Deka® Fahrenheit® is a revolutionary
heat-tolerant battery featuring a VRLA (Valve-Regulated Lead Acid) design with East
Penn Manufacturing's exclusive Thermal Management Technology System.
Elevated temperatures have always been one of lead-acid batteries’ more formidable foes. Deka
Fahrenheit's Thermal Management Technology System was developed by East Penn Manufacturing Co., Inc.
through extensive component research, process evaluation, scientific analysis, and conclusive
testing. The result was heat tolerance far superior to standard VRLA and pure-lead batteries. They
have integrated special features that have led to a true innovation in high-temperature VRLA
This cutting-edge Thermal Management Technology System is composed of: IPF®
(Individual Plate Formation) Technology, an advanced case and cover plastic
formula, a Micro Catalyst, TempX Additive, and a
Corrosion Inhibitor Alloy.
IPF® Technology assures the full formation and inspection of every battery
plate. This optimizes power capacities and ensures consistent cell-to-cell
voltages critical to long-life reliability.
The case and cover are composed of an advanced THT™ plastic
formula that creates a heat resistant composite structure to optimize
internal compression and enhance valve regulation performance.
The Micro Catalyst lowers float current, mitigates thermal buildup, and
prevents cell dry out.
An exclusive TempX Additive in the negative plate decreases float
current by up to 75% and allows it to withstand the affect of high heat while
increasing life in higher temperatures.
On the positive plate, a special Corrosion Inhibitor Alloy blend
impedes corrosion even under the highest temperature extremes.
In addition to its Thermal Management Technology, Deka Fahrenheit batteries feature full
recycling capabilities and front access terminals, all in a
strategic footprint that accommodates existing racking and
cabinets. East Penn’s well-known front access terminal configuration provides a space
saving, safer design that maximizes convenience in high-powered energy storage
All Deka Fahrenheit VRLA monoblok batteries are manufactured in East Penn's 520-acre complex where
quality and environmental systems have been certified to ISO 9001:2008, ISO/TS 16949:2009, and ISO
