How to Handle Aging and Corroded Battery Terminals

September 30, 2022

Introduction to the Problem of Aging and Corroded Battery Terminals

Battery terminals that have been exposed to the elements for an extended period of time can become corroded and cause continuity issues. At Centerfire Services, we take a specific approach to handling these issues to ensure that your battery terminals are functioning properly.

Removing Corrosion and Crimping Eyelets onto Wires

Our process begins by clipping any wires that have become corroded. This is done to remove any of the corrosion that may have worked its way into the stranded wire. Next, we crimp and solder eyelets onto each wire individually. This ensures that each wire is properly connected and protected from further damage.

Sealing the Connections with Heat Shrink Wrap

Once the eyelets have been soldered, we use heat shrink wrap to seal the connections and protect them from further contamination. This step is crucial in preventing corrosion and ensuring that your battery terminals are functioning properly.

Setting the Battery Terminals onto a Solid Lead Terminal Clamp

The final step in our process is to set the battery terminals onto a solid lead terminal clamp with a thru bolt. This provides a secure connection and helps to prevent any future issues. Once the terminals are in place, we spray the entire setup with battery terminal protector. This helps to seal off the terminals and prevent further corrosion.
