Gelled Electrolyte (gel) and Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) Batteries
Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA):
EAST PENN Expertise and American Workmanship
Valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) technology encompasses both gelled electrolyte and absorbed glass mat (AGM) batteries. Both types are valve-regulated and have significant advantages over flooded lead- acid products.
More than a decade ago, East Penn Manufacturing began building valve-regulated batteries using tried and true technology backed by more than 50 years experience. East Penn’s unique computer-aided manufactur- ing expertise and vertical integration have created a product that is recognized as the highest quality, longest lived VRLA battery available from any source.
East Penn’s gel and AGM batteries are manufactured to tough quality standards. East Penn manufactures high power gel and AGM batteries with excellent performance and life.
VRLA batteries can be substituted in virtually any flooded lead-acid battery application (in conjunction with well-regulated charging), as well as applications where traditional flooded batteries cannot be used. Because of their unique features and benefits, VRLA batteries are particularly well suited for:Deep Cycle, Deep Discharge Applications
