Recommended Practice for Stationary Battery Electrolyte Spill Containment and Management
|Publication Date:||7 June 2007|
This recommended practice discusses factors relating to electrolyte spill containment and management for vented lead-acid (VLA), valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA), vented nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd), and valve regulated Ni-Cd stationary batteries. Suggestions are made for drafting model codes.
This recommended practice is intended to assist code-writing organizations. It seeks to develop a full understanding of and describe some electrolyte spill containment and management issues related to stationary battery systems, and the ways in which battery chemistry and construction can influence requirements for spill containment and neutralization.
