Excerpt from Storage Batteries Simplified, Operating Principles Care and Industrial Applications: A Complete, Non-Technical but Authoritative Treatise Discussing the Development of the Modern Storage Battery, Outlining the Basic Operation of the Leading Types
When storage cells are to be used in automobile work they are combined in a single containing member, as shown at Fig. 4, A, which is a. Part sectional view of storage battery. The main con taining member, a box of wood is divided into three parts by cell jars of hard rubber. Each of these compartments serves to hold the elements comprising one cell. The positive and negative plates are spaced apart by wooden and hard rubber separators, which prevent short circuiting between the plates. After the elements have been put in place in the compartments forming the indi vidual cells of the battery, the top of the jar is sealed by pouring a compound of pitch and rosin, or asphaltum, over cover plates of hard rubber, which keeps the sealing material from running into the cells and on the plates. Vents are provided over each cell, through which gases, produced by charging or discharging, are allowed to escape. These are so formed that while free pas sage of gas is provided for, it is not possible for the electrolyte to splash out when the vehicle is in motion.
