Rebling Power Connectors manufactures a line of vent caps for multiple power storage cell technologies. These removable battery vent caps seal the electrolyte within the cell and allow venting of the internal pressure of the cell at prescribed pressure ranges.

While various configurations and battery venting pressures are available, the basic construction of these battery vent caps is shown in the photo below.

By varying the geometry of this design, the vent relief pressure range can be changed to suit customer requirements. Battery venting pressures ranging from a low of 2 psi to over 35 psi are available.

Ni-Cad Aircraft Battery Vent Caps
Rebling’s battery vent caps were originally designed for commercial Ni-Cad aircraft batteries. The standard battery vent cap configurations are appropriate for most applications. However, Rebling also has introduced a line of battery vent caps that minimize the electrolyte leakage in aerobatic applications such as a roll maneuver by military aircraft. These aerobatic aircraft vents are similar to the standard line with the addition of deflectors or snorkels that extend below the electrolyte level within the cell when inverted.

Ultracapacitor Vent Caps
With the recent proliferation of Ultracapacitor usage in high current applications, battery companies have been ramping up to produce these devices with similar manufacturing techniques. Rebling has been working to provide solutions to these new battery vent caps, including Ultracapacitor vent caps. Some of these technologies and chemistries are requiring different battery venting pressures. Rebling can customize its standard battery vent cap designs to accommodate the needs of Ultracapacitor.
