The Best Gets Better: New Delkor PowerFrame Technology

Share

Delkor Batteries have a history of innovation and manufacturing excellence. They were the first Korean battery manufacturer to produce Sealed Maintenance-Free batteries. They introduced both AGM and EFB batteries in 2012 to cater for emerging Start- Stop engine technology. Now their record of product innovation continues with the launch of the patented and cutting-edge PowerFrame® technology.

 

Technology

Patented by Delkor’s parent company Johnson Controls (JCI), the innovative PowerFrame® technology all starts with Delkor’s specific lead alloys. These alloys are passed through a unique multi stage cold-rolling process. By progressively rolling the lead down to the exact thicknesses required, Delkor ensures the finest grain lead possible is used in PowerFrame® plate production. With precision tolerances measured to thousandths of a millimetre, the patented PowerFrame® stamping process then punches the unique positive plate PowerFrame® grids in a highly controlled and uniform manner. Absolute consistency in plate construction is the key to reliability. This finely controlled process reduces stress on the metal, further ensuring consistency and reliability.


PowerFrame® grids are up to 66% more durable than traditional plate construction technology. Johnson Controls conducted comparative tests in harsh environments all around the globe, including taxi cabs in the notoriously tough New York cab market. Post-test analysis showed PowerFrame® consistently outperformed all other battery plate designs. The full frame around the PowerFrame® grid ensures plate rigidity, strength and durability. The unique radial design of the plate grids ensures electron flow is optimised for maximum efficiency. The PowerFrame® plate’s unique design provides up to 70% better electrical flow than other battery plate designs.


Improved electrical current flow means greater efficiency and performance.

 

Quality

Even the best technology in the world needs a thorough and rigid quality control process to ensure maximum efficiency and consistency. No one does this better than Delkor. Delkor has won the prestigious Korean Standards Association KS-QEI Quality Award every year from 2006 to 2015 inclusive. With up to 60% of all SMF batteries sold in Australia being Korean- made, no other battery manufacturer in Korea has ever achieved this feat. 10 consecutive awards are testament to the total commitment Delkor have to producing the best quality battery, period.

 

The majority of all Delkor batteries up to Group 31 size are being produced with PowerFrame®  positive plates, including their AGM range. Delkor Batteries are distributed Australia-wide exclusively by R & J Batteries and their dedicated network of Delkor stockists.
