Total Quality Control


At IBT, we believe that an effective and strictly managed quality control system is essential to the growth and expansion of our customer base and position in the industry. Distinction and expertise can only be gained by developing, manufacturing and delivering the highest quality industrial battery, OEM SLA/VRLA batteries products to our customers. We strive for excellence in everything that we do, and this is assured through our total quality control, which is maintained throughout the production process from plate production to the packaging and delivery of the finished product. By thoroughly reviewing each product through the rigorous supervision of our quality control system, we guarantee that we produce and develop the highest quality products in the industry.

Quality Test:

At IBT, each industrial battery needed to pass a series of tests to ensure quality before shipment. The following is the list of test.

Capacity Test
Batteries are discharged at the 0.3C rate. After 150 minutes of continuous discharge the battery voltage under load must be 1.75 volt/cell to pass.
High Load Test
A load of 2C amps is applied for 5 minutes while the terminal voltage is monitored. To pass, the voltage must be >11.88 volt/ per battery.
Visual Inspection
Batteries are inspected for proper appearance of battery case, terminals, seals, markings, and the absence of electrolyte leakage. Several samples each day are checked for compliance with specified dimensions and tolerances.
Capacity Test (Medium Load)
Samples of battery are fully charged, then discharged at ambient temperature at the 0.2C rate to a final voltage of 1.7 volt/cell. The discharge time must be no less then 4 hours.
Capacity Test (High Load)
Fully charged batteries are discharged at 77F° / 25C° at the 2C rate to an end voltage of 1.35V/cell. The expected discharge time is >15 minutes.
Shelf Life Test
Fully charged batteries are stored for 2 1/2 weeks at 131F° / 55C°. A discharge test performed at ambient temperature applying a load of 0.2C rate to 1.7V/cell must yield a run time of at least 3 hours, i.e. the capacity loss resulting from self-discharge must not exceed 50%.
Vibration Test
Samples of battery are subjected to vibration is any direction at the rate of 2000 cycles per minute and amplitude of 0.1 inch (2.5mm) for 2 hours. No signs of damage, leakage, or change in electrical characteristics are expected.
Overcharge Test
Fully charged batteries are overcharged at the rate of 0.1C amps for 48 hours, and then expected to produce a run time of 8.5 hours, or at least 95% of initial capacity, and an absence of problem signs.
Relief Valve Test
A fully charged industrial battery is submerged in a tank filled with mineral oil and charged at 0.4C amps. This overcharge is to demonstrate the proper functioning of the safety relief valve. The release of excess gasses through the vent is demonstrated by bubbles rising from the battery.
Cycle Life Test
At an ambient temperature of 77F° / 25C° sample batteries are discharged at the 0.2C rate to 1.7V/celland recharged at the 0.25 rates up to 2.5V/cell until charge current drops 0.01C amps. At least 200 cycles must be obtained before the capacity drops below 60% of initial capacity
