Today, every hour spent changing, recharging and maintaining lead-acid forklift batteries eats into productivity. Now, there’s an alternative. Hydrogen fuel cells can help enhance material handling operations through superior performance that helps to increase productivity. Air Products provides the hydrogen supply and fuelling infrastructure for fuel cell power packs, which are direct replacements for the industrial batteries used in forklifts, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and other material handling vehicles.
Using Air Products' integrated hydrogen fuelling systems with fuel cell power packs offers many benefits:
- eliminates time-consuming recharging and swap-outs associated with batteries; vehicles are refuelled once or twice per day and can be refuelled in three to five minutes
- produces constant voltage, so industrial vehicles maintain constant speed throughout the workday
- the only emission from hydrogen fuel cells is water.
