Class Code: 3647
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 3647 is applicable to the manufacture of wet batteries primarily consisting of a sulphuric acid and water electrolyte. These batteries are commonly used to power mobile equipment such as automobiles and vessels.
The components of a battery generally consist of a container or case, a cap, electrodes, a current collector and an electrolyte. These materials may either be manufactured by the battery manufacturer or received from others. The battery manufacturer will mix chemicals and other materials to form the electrolyte mix and add this mix to the container. The assembly of additional battery components inside the container and the capping of the battery complete the operation. The battery manufacturing process is usually fully automated.
The recycling of wet batteries is also contemplated by Code 3647.
Refer to Code 3642 for the manufacture of dry batteries.
