Electrical power is one of the greatest necessities of the world in the modern times, there is not even a single task in the domestic, agricultural or industrial scenario that can be accomplished without electrical power. The electrical is available through various different types of sources. These sources include hydroelectric power, nuclear power, solar power and thermal power. In addition to that, the electrical power can also be produced with the help of fossil fuels using the generators and dynamos.
No matter how the electrical power is produced, it can always be stored in small equipment called batteries. The batteries are the small electrochemical cell that is used for charging with electrical power and store it in static state and when required the electrical power can be released using proper circuitry.
The batteries comprise of electrolyte, anode and cathode. These are used for transmission of the electrical current stored in the batteries. In commercial terms, there are several types of common batteries that used in modern times including Lead acid batteries, Nickel cadmium batteries, lithium-ion batteries, nickel-metal hydride batteries. Other lesser known types of batteries include Zinc-air, flooded lead acid and alkaline batteries.
The batteries that are used in the industries include a steel container in which the electrolyte is contained. Also it provides the basic structure for the batteries. Nowadays, the batteries are also made from high grade plastics. The steel container is selected according to the required size of the battery. Inside the steel container there are cathode rods or rings according to the size of the battery. The cathode rings or rods are made form a granulated material that is made by mixing graphite and the electrolyte along with manganese dioxide. The mixture of these chemicals is pressed to form silver matte rods or rings. The rods are provided with a separator that separates the cathode from the anode. The electrolyte is a liquid that is responsible for electrical conductivity of the electric current through the battery. The electrolyte is absorbed by the separator and the cathode. The potassium hydroxide and zinc powder is inserted in the battery after that.
The container carries the electrolyte and the cathode (positive terminal) and the anode (negative terminal). The separator is used for keeping the cathode and anode away from each other. When an electrical appliance is connected to the battery, the circuit is completed for the transmission of electrons hence conveying the electrical current. After the whole power of the battery is consumed, it gets emptied and there are no further electrons to be transmitted, the battery is called discharged. It can be recharged by providing reverse current to the battery.
In order to provide uninterrupted power supply for a longer time, it is essential that the quality of the batteries is tested thoroughly and hence the manufacturers need to test the quality of the batteries using proper procedures and equipments. The testing of batteries must be conducted in a lab that is equipped with all the procedures and equipment that is required for accurate testing of the batteries. In that case, the labs must be certified for ISO 17025: 2017 and accredited from NABL so that it is ensured that all the procedures are followed and accurate testing data is obtained for best quality assurance of batteries.
