Element SLS Locomotive Starting
The Element® SLS utilizes proven Absolyte® VRLA technology to create the industry’s first low-maintenance railway diesel starting battery. The batteries are non-spillable, thus eliminating damage to equipment and greatly reducing environmental concerns and increasing personnel safety.
