Designers at Besser have engineered an innovative new feature into the standard line of wet cast grade ring battery form sets for even more production efficiency. Equipment can now be ordered with a unique roll-back core stand and base pedestal to facilitate stripping the core from the form. The collapsible core is placed atop a wheel-mounted core stand or base so it may be easily rolled in and out of the form for product setup and stripping. This process saves both time and labor, since only the product is handled. It also eliminates the need for a forklift, as one production employee can accomplish the simple operation. The roll-back core equipment can be used with all sizes and styles of grade ring battery form sets.
Wet cast grade ring battery form sets are available in various styles and sizes to produce multiple grade ring sections from a single pour. Flat pallets, keylock pallets and tongue and groove pallets can be used to form the grade ring joints. Form sets will produce grade rings ranging in height from 2” (50 mm) up to the length of the jacket.
Two-piece or three-piece jackets (or outer forms) are available in varying lengths, and the new roll- back core and pedestal feature can be used with either style. Jackets are fabricated from heavy-duty steel plate with channel rib reinforcing and sturdy lift eyes. Rugged jackets are equipped with easy-to- operate adjustable locks designed to simplify the use of the jacket as well as ensure the production of a quality wet cast product.
Cores (or inner forms) are engineered for easy, long-lasting operation and are fabricated from heavy steel plate with a single opening. The core seam has beveled, mated edges for a smooth, tight joint. Cores feature the time-tested internally mounted core collapsing device to lock and unlock the core.
