There are situations when the car owner does not want or can not afford to replace or repair a car battery.
And if the level of electrolyte has dropped to a threatening level? Adding the electrolyte to a faulty compartment in such a situation is vital.
We will have to arm ourselves with knowledge of chemistry and simple adaptations.
You will need
- - acid resistant dishes with a capacity of 4-5 l (heat-resistant glass bulb, ceramics, lead or ebonite)
- - hydrometer with a sampling tube, thermometer
- - wand made of ebonite or glass
- - rubber pears with a tip resistant to acid
- - capacity per 1 liter and several with small divisions by 0.1-0.2 liters
- - distilled water intended for accumulators
- - sulfuric acid rechargeable
Pour distilled water into a stable acid-proof container. Determine the number in advance using the table.
Add the same sulfuric acid. The quantity should also be carefully calculated. Be sure to do this in a thin trickle with continuous stirring with an ebonite or glass rod.
Cool the electrolyte to + 25 ° C and check the density of the substance obtained. Adjust the density to the desired value. This is done with distilled water or sulfuric acid.
