Recommended Practice for Stationary Battery Electrolyte Spill Containment and Management
|Publication Date:||23 October 2018|
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 partially recombinant Ni-Cd stationary batteries.
This recommended practice is intended to educate those who are responsible for battery system design operation as it relates to environmental and health practices. 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.
