Black Horse-FAS doo has a rich history of constant improvements and innovations since it’s very beginning in 1952. Modernization of production and development of new technologies is ensured by continuous investments.
Today the total plant capacity is 500,000 batteries per year.
The basis of the company’s philosophy are systematic professional training of qualified personnel. 135 employees are currently employed in the factory, and this number is growing.
We are used to supply businesses and partners all over the world.
For all of us, the battery has to start the vehicle’s engine in all weather conditions, to provide energy for all electric consumers in the vehicle, to last as long as possible (preferably as the vehicle) and not require any maintenance.
The battery is an electrochemical energy source that releases electricity in a controlled way. All types of batteries contain positive and negative plates that are ionized into the electrolyte inside the box.
All our batteries are lead-acid, which means that positive and negative plates are made of lead compounds found in electrolytes from diluted sulphuric acid. Lead-acid batteries fall into a group of secondary batteries, which means they can be recharged after discharge. Primary batteries can only be discharged once, after which they must be thrown away; an example of these batteries are batteries for handheld lamps and radios.
A grid made of lead alloy gives mechanical firmness to the active material. Active material is made from a mixture of lead oxide and lead sulfate, which turns into lead dioxide on a positive plate when initially charging. Negative active material also contains small amounts of additives that give the battery good discharge performance at low temperatures.
Electrolyte is diluted sulphuric acid. It serves as a conductor for electric ions between a positive and negative plate when the battery is charging or emptying.
