With modern SMF Technology, (sealed maintenance-free battery design), topping up fluid levels has become a thing of the past. Since, the first lead-acid battery in 1859, invented by French physician Gaston Planté, they were designed in such a way they required maintenance. In this “day and age”, most batteries require no maintenance, but for the technology to be effective, the engineering needs to be of a high degree.
So How Do The Century Sealed Maintenance Free Battery Components Work In Unison?
The Advanced Century Labyrinth Chamber has intricate channels specifically designed to direct the condensed water vapour back into the battery case. It also prevents water/electrolyte leakage in the event of tilting or vibration.
Whilst the battery is in operation or charging mode, the vapours rise within the Heat Sealed Double Lid Technology. As the top lid remains cooler than the bottom lid, the vapours condense into water and redirecting back inside the case. It’s a perfect balance to maintain healthy fluid levels and prolong the service life of your vehicle’s battery.
Please take into consideration that the Century expanded calcium grid plates and specialised paste formulation, also play a big role in minimising water evaporation. As you can see, although the process seems easy enough, the engineering process is quite technical to ensure components work in complete unison with each other, making it a truly non-maintainable product.
The chemical reaction within a battery produces gasses, and since SMF batteries are sealed, excessive gasses need an escape route. This is where the porous Flame Arrestor and Central Venting System work in unison to prevent gas pressure build-up and protection against external sparks, flames and other ignition sources.
The 1st Australian-Made Century SMF Range, its industry-leading technology and engineering innovation, offering a truly high-quality choice for both your vehicle and individuals looking for trouble-free, no maintenance motoring.

Although there other good quality SMF batteries on the market, it pays to do your research when making your selection. The internal components and engineering design, play a big role in the longevity and functionality of a non-maintainable battery.
