Rejuvenating Hydrocaps - How?

The Hydrocaps on my Rolls battery do not appear to be functioning properly. It was suggested to me that at some point they became wetted and that this can keep them from catalyzing the gasses. The same person also thought that there was a procedure for properly drying them out, involving perhaps a microwave oven, but he was not sure and thought I should investigate further.

I haven't been able to find an official online source of information on care and maintenance of these things, can anyone help?

Thanks,
Chip

Contact Mr. George Peroni at Hydrocap Corp.
975 N.W. 95 Street, Miami, FL 33150
Telephone: 305-696-2504

Although catalysts are not consumed by the reaction itself, they may be inhibited, deactivated or destroyed by secondary processes. I suspect this may be the case /w Hydrocaps.

Thanks, Gord.

The fellow seems anxious to help, and is going to send me a questionaire to learn more about my battery and charging system in an attempt to find a solution.

He didn't seem to be aware of any kind of drying procedure, however. We'll see what happens.
