Tennant Company Selects Trojan Battery Company to Extend Battery Life for Scrubber and Sweeper Equipment

Innovative Battery Design Provides Operator Safety with Minimal Maintenance

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tennant Company (NYS: TNC) , a world leader in designing and manufacturing solutions that create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, today announced another innovative solution by featuring Trojan Battery's HydroLink™ single-point battery watering system on a variety of floor scrubbers and rider sweepers. The HydroLink system makes it easier and more cost effective for Tennant customers to maintain their deep-cycle flooded batteries, helping to improve battery life and reduce the frequency of battery replacement.

"Our customers continually tell us they are looking for battery solutions that provide longer runtimes and simplify the upkeep process," said Karin Overstreet, Tennant Company director of product management. "Powering Tennant's equipment with Trojan's innovative HydroLink technology addresses these needs by simplifying the maintenance process to help extend battery life while delivering exceptional performance."

With Trojan's HydroLink single-point battery watering technology, users can fill deep-cycle flooded batteries to the proper electrolyte level with virtually no operator training. HydroLink makes battery watering a simpler and cleaner process, and enables Tennant customers to fill a complete set of batteries in less than 30 seconds. In addition, HydroLink increases operator safety by eliminating the need to open batteries for routine watering and maintenance, reducing the potential for contact with the battery's electrolyte.

"Trojan's advanced HydroLink watering system enables Tennant customers to more easily and accurately water the batteries that power their Tennant floor scrubber and sweeper equipment," said Elke Hirschman, Trojan Battery vice president of marketing. "By using HydroLink to precisely water their batteries, Tennant customers will save time and money when on the job, and can extend the life of their deep-cycle battery investment."

The HydroLink battery watering technology is available direct from the factory and as an "aftermarket" solution for the following Tennant scrubber and sweeper machines:

  • Rider Scrubbers: T7/SSR, 7100, T15 and T16
  • Walk-Behind Scrubbers: T5/SS5 and 5680/5700
  • Rider Sweepers: 6100 and 6200
