Stored Energy Products
The Lithium iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery designed by Galenfeha is a light weight replacement for a lead-acid battery, and will require no change to existing systems.
LiFePO4 is not your traditional lead-acid battery. It contains no acid, no poisonous lead and does not create gasses during charge. LiFePO4 batteries have much lower self-discharge, do not sulfate, and are environmentally friendly.
The Battery Management System (BMS) on Galenfeha LiFeP04 batteries monitors the key operational parameters during charging and discharging such as voltages, currents and internal temperatures.
There are three main objectives common to all BMS:
1. Protect the cells or the battery from damage from overcharging or discharging too low.
2. Prolong the life of the battery with cell balancing.
3. Maintain the battery in a safe operating state.
The light weight, safety, excellent thermal stability, long life, good electrochemical properties and a very high specific energy density make Galenfeha’s LiFePO4 batteries the best choice to replace lead-acid batteries.
Galenfeha’s oilfield battery is an electrochemical source that provides electrical power to a downhole or surface tool used for determining the location or assisting in the extraction of hydrocarbons.
Unlike a conventional battery, an oilfield battery must safely provide sufficient power to enable a tool to perform as specified, even on extended jobs. Designed with rugged external packaging to fit within a confined tool space, it must tolerate extreme temperatures while withstanding high shock and vibration. Its internal chemistry must also
Golf Cart Application
Galenfeha has also developed and tested a battery system specifically designed for the golf cart industry that presents as a paradigm shift in an environment historically dominated by lead/acid chemistry. Client experience with regards to physical maintenance and re-charge management is vastly improved with the new form factor. The Galenfeha system requires no water and the OEM charging system is retained. Overall weight plays a huge role in the lifespan and performance of electric carts. The Galenfeha system answers the call with a solid 70% (335lb as tested) reduction in battery mass over conventional lead/acid units. Stable voltage and current delivery are crucial to the technology built into today’s state of the art carts. The LiFePO4 chemistry in the Galenfeha product line delivers up to a 40% increase in usable voltage under the performance curve which stabilizes current demand under the most taxing of today’s echelon level courses.
Benefits of the LiFePO4 include:
- No heavy metal or acid content.
Completely dry chemistry
No corrosive content whatsoever
70% (335lb as tested) weight savings
25% reduction in current demand from the motor extends component life
90% charge efficiently lowers effective charge time and lowers energy bill
Battery compliment is lowered from six batteries to four (48V system)
Proprietary Galenfeha internal battery management system specifically designed for the vehicle
Discharges less than 10% per year when left dormant
Carts may be charged at the end of the season and removed from the charger without fear of sulfation and state of charge degradation
Short circuit protection controlled
Low voltage cut-off prevents over discharge
Utilizes factory charger
Auxiliary, 12V connection terminals that are autonomous to the main leads allow for 12-48V accessories to be connected without the need for extra batteries or power/voltage management systems
Increased improvement in 100' acceleration testing
Recent testing consists of a 50 mile scenario of continuous stop and go operation under a single charge cycle
Fully charged voltage was recorded as 13.5VDC and was observed to be 13.03VDC following the 50 mile evaluation study
Chemical Injection Pumps
Galenfeha’s DLP-P Pneumatic Chemical Injection Pump is an industry innovation, combining the rate precision of a solar powered digital control system, with the reliability of a pneumatic pump. This revolutionary design brings ruggedness and reliability to the forefront of chemical injection technology.
The DLP-P Series Pump is constructed of the highest grade 316 SS, and is built to withstand corrosion in the harshest environments.
With our proprietary digital control system, the stroke and rate is no longer dependent on turning a bolt or manually opening a needle valve. All rate control and stroke count is precisely managed by the on-board, solar powered, digital control system. This level of control allows for ranging rates from mere pints per day to over 60 gallons per day (based on plunger size).
Further evidence of this domino effect is seen as downstream businesses benefit from innovative products that lower their costs and improve their processes and finished articles. For example, a more precise machine could make manufacturing pharmaceuticals safer; a more reliable software program could improve military hardware while making it more affordable; or a clearer sound system could boost the quality of a recording studio’s album. In each of these cases, and many more, the innovation feeds directly into a new finished article or service that has commercial value. The innovation may increase customer satisfaction through a higher quality product or service or decrease production costs. This additional value can help businesses protect earnings that can support their labor force.
With a standard limited lifetime warranty, operating costs and downtime are drastically reduced, allowing for consistent operation and worry-free maintenance.
The DLP-S Solar Powered Chemical Injection Pump was engineered to offer un-matched reliability, simplicity in operation, and efficiency in serviceability.
