The lean battery filling system that does more with less.
At Philadelphia Scientific, we are driven by the philosophy of ‘lean’ to ensure our customers use less time, money and effort to achieve more.
Our challenge when designing a new battery filling system was to use fewer components but offer more features and benefits than current market offerings, all for a lower price. Furthermore the system needed to be compatible with the methods and standards currently in use.
By taking a fresh look at how to make a float control water, and stop reliably every time, we are now proud to present the innovative Aqua Filling System™ - AFS.
‘What we have done is completely rethink the way float systems work to build a simple, cheap and more reliable filling system.’ Duncan Jones
Along with being faster to install and having fewer parts than the competition, the AFS offers a host of additional benefits:
In addition, our new shut off mechanism is more reliable than any other low to mid pressure range watering system that has come before it. This means battery builders can be confident they have the fastest system to install, reducing assembly costs; battery distributors can be confident they always have the correct items in stock without tying up capital and space; battery owners can be confident their batteries are being watered safely and efficiently and battery maintenance people can be confident they have done their job correctly.
