Philadelphia Scientific Water Injector System

Alpine Power Systems' experienced technical support & sales team is here to assist your needs:

The Water Injector System typically fills batteries 8 times faster than other types of single point watering systems!  This mean that 8 batteries can be filled in the time that it would take to fill 1 battery with other systems.  Even experienced battery users are astonished at the speed of filling.

The system saves money in two ways. First, it cuts labor costs, often paying for itself within its first year of operation. Second, it extends the life of each expensive battery it is installed on due to improved quality of watering.

The system also improves safety and environmental cleanliness. There is no need to peer into cells to inspect levels as with manual filling, and Water Injectors automatically fill each cell to the correct level, so no overfilling and no electrolyte overflow during charge.

The Water Injector System is outstandingly durable. Designed for harsh industrial environments, it will shrug off abuse that would destroy most other systems, and continue to work dependably for the life of the battery.

In the long run, they have the best financial ROI of all available filling systems. This is especially true in heavy-duty applications where breakage of more fragile systems become costly. It is also true in the new and growing watering service market where battery watering is outsourced to specialists.


Features and benefits

  • Very fast operation: An average industrial truck battery can be filled, with precise level control, in less than 15 seconds. Yet the system is gentle. The secret is parallel filling, made possible by the unique low-friction tubing and pressurized water supply.

  • Compact: A very low profile allows them to fit on almost any battery. Injectors can snap in and out to allow inspection of electrolyte levels and specific gravities.

  • Rugged: Tough enough to survive impacts, abuse and extremes of battery temperatures. There are no exposed parts to break off even when an Injector is removed from a cell.   This makes the Water Injector System ideal for rapid or opportunity charge applications. 

  • True level sensing mechanism. Needs no submergence to sense level as a float does. Can work right down to the top of the separators. Will not fail if it touches cell components.

  • The only single point watering system to allow convenience filling.  The Water Injector System has the unique ability to be used to fill a battery regardless of state of charge.  In conventional charging applications, the Water Injector System is precise enough to allow filling before or after charge.  For rapid or opportunity charge applications watering should only be done after the weekly equilazation charge.  

  • No-freeze tubing: The surplus water drains from the tubing into cells after filling is complete. This makes the system perfect for use in cold storage facilities and other freezing environments.

  • 2-Stage Filtration: In addition to the filter screen in the water tubing, each Injector has its own individual filter.

  • 5 Year warranty: Philadelphia Scientific warrants its Water Injectors against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 5 years from the date of sale by Philadelphia Scientific.

  • Easy to order and inventory:  Each Water Injector System has a single part number to simplify ordering and inventory control.  Water Injector Systems are available in three options: Instant Install, which requires no additional assembly; Semi Assembled, which requires very little additional assembly; and Spider System, which requires some assembly.  

  • Exclusive product: The Water Injector System is manufactured by Philadelphia Scientific. For almost two decades, it has been the fastest, most reliable battery filling system in the world.

  • Exclusive reconditioning service: Water Injectors are so tough that we can recondition used ones regardless of their age. We discard the old tubing and connectors, clean the Injectors in a special cleaning process and, after a 100% inspection, install them on a new length of tubing. That means even more savings for our customers.
