An inexpensive and safer alternative to manual battery watering, the watering gun delivers a precise flow rate for quick and easy battery filling. Philadelphia Scientific introduced the first affordable and reliable battery watering gun in 1983 and offers three different guns for different types of batteries and applications.
The GUN-X is the next generation in battery watering gun technology making it an essential maintenance tool for any battery room, forklift battery and industrial battery. This improved technology speeds up battery watering, increases filling accuracy and improves operator safety. Compared to hand watering and with a flow rate of 1.7 gallons per minute, the GUN-X can reduce labor costs up to $150 a year for each 18-cell battery.
Operation of the watering gun is easy. Simply connect the battery watering gun to a standard water hose or water deionizer. Next, put the tip of the gun into the cell and squeeze the ergonomic handle. The mechanism will automatically shut off at exactly the right electrolyte level and its design eliminates post shut-off drip.Learn More
The GUN-S has been specially designed for watering transparent type stationary batteries. This gun operates outside the battery cell and does not have an automatic shutoff. When the correct water level is reached, simply release the handle to shut off the water flow.Learn More
Diesel Starter Battery Watering Gun
GUN-RR (The Railroad Battery Watering Gun) is specifically designed to serve as a solution for watering diesel starter batteries.
Manually watering diesel starter batteries is ineffective, inconsistent and incomplete because cells located in the back of the battery are hard to reach and therefore rarely watered. Moreover, manual watering is a slow process and usually requires at least 30 minutes per locomotive.
Gun-RR incorporates a unique ergonomic design that allows an operator to access every cell in a battery. Its efficiency can permit an operator to fully water a battery in 10 minutes. The watering gun features a precise automatic shut-off and ensures every cell is filled to the optimal level. Diesel starter batteries can be watered economically, efficiently and safely.
Gun-RR can be used with a variety of waters sources including a building’s water main, HydroFill watering cart, mobile dual deionizer cart or the HydroPure deionizer.Learn More
