Exide Technologies announced today at ProMAT 2019 the launch of its GNB Marathon Subzero battery designed to meet the specific demands of cold-storage applications. GNB Marathon Subzero batteries are durable and outperform conventional batteries in both runtime and lifespan in cold environments (39°F/4°C and below).
“Our customers using GNB Marathon Subzero batteries are experiencing increased runtimes by up to 53 percent, at a temperature of nine degrees Fahrenheit, compared to conventional batteries,” said Ted Becker, President, Exide Americas. “The result of fewer battery changes translates to a higher volume of materials moved per hour, which in turn raises productivity and lowers the total cost of ownership.”
GNB Marathon Subzero is a military-grade engineered battery that was initially designed to withstand the rigors of deep-sea work and to handle the most severe applications in the harshest conditions. Its unique use of Tensor® technology to incorporate copper for negative grid materials, replacing the lead used in conventional batteries, equips Marathon Subzero with enhanced conductivity.
This benefit of low-resistance allows for both fast and opportunity charging, making this battery the optimal choice for customers’ cold-storage material handling needs.
GNB Marathon Subzero batteries are currently available in the following popular sizes.
- 18-125-17 - 990 Ah and 38.31″L x 19.88″W x 30.5″H
- 12-85-13 – 500 Ah and 30.44″L x 12.96″W x 25.25″H
- 12-10-13 - 640 Ah and 30.44″L x 12.69″W x 30.75″H
