Eagle Barton Oxide Systems

Quality Oxide From the Oxide Equipment Experts!

Lead acid battery performance is dependent upon the quality of lead oxide used. This is why Eagle’s Barton oxide systems have been designed to produce a wide range of high quality oxides for a wide range of battery types.

Three systems to choose from depending upon your production needs:

EOS 500
350 to 450 Kg/Hr
700 to 900 lbs/Hr  (10-Ton/Day)

EOS 1000
750 to 950 Kg/Hr
1600 to 2000 lbs/Hr  (24-Ton/Day)
EOS 1200
1000 to 1200 Kg/Hr
2200 to 2600 lbs/Hr (30-Ton/Day) 

Our mechanical and electrical control systems automatically control and maintain critical operating conditions to ensure oxide quality meets specifications. With Eagle’s unique temperature monitoring and PLC control algorithms; our systems easily allow operators to produce a selected ratio of tetragonal PbO crystal structures, ranging from 70% to 99% with very little variability.

Environmental conditions and ease of use for the operator are demanding elements in any processing equipment. Eagle understands these requirements and has developed a control system that provides operators with single Start-Up and Shut-Down buttons for the entire system. The control also monitors multiple sensors and will automatically shut down the system and alert the operator of any critical issue. Cost of operation is always a consideration in any equipment purchase and Eagle’s Barton systems are the most efficient in the industry.

The following chart indicates energy consumption of key components of the system and overall average per hour during normal operation.
