Food Industry Logistics: Our Packs are Water Resistant!

Latest News From Flux Power

How do you pressure wash a dirty pallet jack at the end of a long day?

Until now, the answer was … very carefully.

Electrical machinery operators in the food and food processing industries know that cleanliness is vital, yet water and electricity don’t mix. Regular cleaning is a mandatory but delicate chore, particularly when it involves old-school battery systems that require frequent maintenance and service.

Excited by the performance and cost benefits of Flux Power®’s LiFT Pack lithium-ion pallet jack batteries, a leading national food processing company asked Flux Power to develop a lithium-ion pack to meet the unique challenges of the food processing industry.

Flux’s engineering and design team went to work … enter stage right … the Flux Power® LiFT Pack S5, the latest in our growing line of innovative lithium-ion industrial energy storage solutions. Flux has designed cases, or enclosures, that fit most pallet jacks.

The ‘S5’ offers all the benefits of Flux’s LiFT Pack™ line of energy storage solutions:

1)     Longer run times

2)     Faster charging

3)     Eliminate smell and acid drip

4)     Sustained high performance over a typical work shift

5)     No maintenance (eliminating recurring costs and down-time)

6)     FAR longer lifespan ~ 5-6 years vs. 1.5 – 2 years for some alternative technologies – Flux provides a 5-year warrantee!

Resulting in improved performance and substantially lower total cost of ownership.

PLUS: the S5’s unique design encases the battery internals inside a welded cover to ensure critical water-resistance.  Users still have convenient access however, to the electronic access panel and the charger cable storage compartment.

After weeks of technical testing, a food industry customer has indicated keen interest and high praise for these packs.

Take the new age of lithium power for a drive, come rain or shine – if you act before September 30 you may be entitled to special launch pricing!
