US battery equipment design and technology firm Wirtz Manufacturing officially launched its Ready To Run (RTR) lead-acid battery breaking and separation system last week.

The ‘plug-and-play’ system was launched through the Port Huron-based firms Battery Recycling Systems arm and introduced during the secondary lead conference in Indonesia by the company’s director of Engineering, Robert Wirtz.

The system is housed in a 40ft-shipping container and is able to separate the battery into metallic lead, lead oxide, separators and polypropelene.

The skid mounted system is able to process 1-24 metric tonnes per day, and can be up and running within 24 hours of delivery.

Wirtz told BEST Battery Briefing: “Our newly developed RTR model is a fantastic small-scale, complete assembly breaking and separation system, which eliminates the typical onsite costs of installation, electrical, plumbing, lengthy start-up, etc. by delivering a ready to run, fully assembled skid mounted system that can be started in a day after arriving at your facility.”
