BHS Expands the Reach Of Battery Wash Services with New Mobile Wash Station

February 25, 2016 - St. Louis, Missouri - Battery Handling Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of battery handling and warehouse equipment, has added mobility to the benefits of their battery wash stations. The new Mobile Wash Station (MWS-47) from BHS allows companies to wash forklift batteries wherever they’re found.

Battery wash stations are a cost-effective solution for extending the life of batteries and reducing lift truck electrical problems. With the Mobile Wash Station, this solution can travel to the limits of a forklift’s reach. The MWS-47’s steel fork pockets make it easy to transport wherever it is needed.

"We are committed to finding ways to improve the convenience of our products without giving up anything in terms of safety," said Katy Cortinovis, Marketing Manager at BHS. "Our new Mobile Wash Station has all the benefits of a traditional wash station, but it’s geared toward companies on the go."

In addition to the mobility provided by standard fork pockets, staff can actually carry a battery inside the MWS-47. It features dual anchor points to secure equipment during travel. While a wash station loaded with a battery is perfectly safe on a service truck, however, users should not use forklifts to move the unit with a battery inside.

Mobile Wash Stations include all the benefits that make their stationary counterparts such safe, sturdy, and sound investments. The MWS-47 features a durable powder-coat finish that resists acid and scratches, friction strips from front to back, poly lead rollers with stainless steel shafts, and a clear vinyl drop-in splash curtain.

"Mobility doesn't have to come at the expense of quality," said Cortinovis.

The BHS Mobile Wash Station was designed to meet the needs of battery service providers and standard warehouse applications alike.

"Every business looks for ways to make operations more efficient, more streamlined," said Cortinovis. "The new Mobile Wash Station fits perfectly on a service truck that travels from site to site. It’s ideal for companies that offer on-site battery washing services."

Facilities that wash their batteries in-house will also find the BHS Mobile Wash Station's mobility features appealing. "It's always a plus when a piece of warehouse equipment can be moved with a forklift," said Cortinovis.
