BATTERY KNOWLEDGE

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BATTERY DEGASSING

 

Chemical reactions inside the battery produce oxyhydrogen.

A degassing tube guarantees the correct and safe discharge of the gas.

Using a degassing tube

Is it necessary to use a degassing tube when installing a battery in the interior?

 

In the case of lead-acid batteries which are installed in the interior/glove compartment, Banner makes the use of a degassing tube mandatory

 

Some vehicles are provided with a tube, with an attached angle piece, for the discharge of the battery gases. If this applies to a vehicle, the tube shall be inserted via the angle piece into the corresponding degassing opening of the battery. If there is a degassing opening on the other side, it must be closed with a sealing plug!


If you need to replace your battery degassing plugs or degassing tubes, please get in touch with your Banner customer advisor, your by a Banner sales partner or contact us directly online.

 

Please note: 

For your own safety, always use safety goggles when handling lead-acid batteries.

Is it possible to change the degassing side of a Banner battery?

Yes, with many types of battery!

The Power Bull and Power Bull PRO European types (T-housings and H-housings, total height 175 or 190 mm) and the Running Bull AGM and Running Bull EFB batteries (European types in T-housings and H-housings, total height 175 or 190 mm) have an opening for connecting the central degassing in the battery cover either on the left side (beside the negative terminal for batteries with circuit 0) or on the right side (beside the positive terminal for batteries with circuit 0).

 

If the side of the degassing opening is not suitable, the white plug can be removed and must be put back into the degassing channel on the opposite side (to prevent any oxyhydrogen from escaping)!


To remove the plug, please use a wooden screw with a diameter of approx. 5 mm. Don't worry, you can't insert the plug into the battery.

Please note: The Starting Bull European types (total height 175 or 190 mm) have an opening for connecting the central degassing on the right side (beside the positive terminal for batteries with circuit 0 and the negative terminal for circuit 1). It is not possible to change the degassing side.

 

 

The current installation situations are briefly noted here:

At BMW and Mercedes-Benz, all batteries in the currently built vehicles are degassed on the positive terminal side. This means on the right side for batteries with circuit 0.
Within the VW Group, all batteries in the currently built vehicles are degassed on the negative pole side! This means on the left side for batteries with circuit 0.
