Single Point Watering Systems

With over a decade of success on locomotives traveling across the US and Canada, the Flow-Rite single-point watering systems have been proven highly effective at reducing battery maintenance time/cost and improving battery performance. Flow-Rite SPWS may be purchased through RBS for easy install by railroad maintenance crews. They can also be factory-installed when ordering new Stryten Energy locomotive starting batteries KDZ501-FR and KDZ651-FR.
