Spring 2018
Batters up! Spring Training is Here!
The Cardinals have more local fans than any other team in the MLB; according to Nielsen Scarborough, 76% of St. Louisans watched, attended or listened to a game last year. It's no wonder St. Louis has consistently been voted the number one major-league baseball town in the U.S.

Spring Cleaning
Product Highlight
Bitrode is now offering washable air filters for its FTF line of machines.
The obvious advantage of Bitrode's new washable air filters is its reusability. Our previous off the shelf standard chipboard frame with pleated synthetic material air filters only had a lifespan of approximately 3 to 6 months depending on the environment in which it was used. In certain factory environments that lifetime could be cut even shorter due to higher temperatures and other external factors.
With a construction built of an aluminum frame and with an aluminum mesh screen, Bitrode's new washable air filters can withstand a more rugged environment, higher temperatures, and have a much longer lifespan. Longer lifespans on air filters means less maintenance and better performance for your machines.

What's Happening in the League
News in the Battery Industry

Bitrode's own Craig Brunk, Director of Sales and Marketing, was recently featured in Batteries International's editorial 'The Year Ahead' section. In this section Batteries International asks leaders from around the battery industry to give their views on the year gone by and what they predict for the year ahead.
Craig reviewed the past year as; "2017 was a strong year of growth for Bitrode Corporation. Our growth wasn't just in sales; we saw growth in the diversity of our customer base as well as the products our customer base is involved with. Fortunately, our battery testing equipment is chemistry neutral, so we are able to see a broad spectrum of the energy storage industry."
As for his predictions for the year ahead; "2018 will continue to be a year of growth and change in the energy storage industry. Lead acid battery manufacturers and their suppliers will continue to expand their global markets and their product offerings." "Engineers and technologists will continue to push the requirements of the batteries; which in turn is pushing all the rest of us to improve our technology and capabilities."
