To illustrate the durability and reliability of its new PowerRush Platinum AGM battery, Carrier Transicold is offering a 4-yr. full replacement warranty. According to the company, the absorbed glass mat (AGM) battery can power refrigeration units as well as many other Group 31 applications.
The PowerRush provides 1150 cold cranking amps (CCA) of starting power with deep cycling ability and cold-starting performance, Carrier said. The pure lead battery retains 75% more power than typical Group 31 wet cell batters at -4oF (-20oC).
A fast charge acceptance by the battery reduces engine run time for recharging, potentially reducing fuel consumption when Carrier refrigeration units are used in “start-stop” mode, the company said. A rugged design helps it withstand vibration and prevent terminal and battery compartment corrosion.
“High performance AGM batteries have gained popularity in the trucking industry, supporting the increased electrical requirements for vehicle electronics and cab accessories,” said Jason Forman, senior product development manager, Carrier Transicold Performance Parts Group.
