Calculating Equalisation time is quite complex. I do not meet many people who have a full grip of why to EQ, when to EQ and for how long.
The frequency of corrective equalizations will vary by system due to factors such as operating temperature, frequency of cycling and depth of discharge. Loss of capacity, imbalance and low specific gravity readings are indicators.
Please see Corrective Equalizations Instructions for proper procedure.
Many systems provide the option to schedule automatic preventative equalizations. These may be scheduled to run for 1-2 hours to balance and remove any buildup of sulfation that has accumulated between corrective equalizations. As noted, HYDROCAPS should be removed during these procedures.
