It sounds like you want to prevent / remove the debilitating effects of sulfate in your batteries and would be best served with an on-board desulfator.
The size of your battery bank may be best served by using 1 of 2 methods. A 36-48V High Powered Industrial Desulfator (BLS-36/48-Multi-F) made by Battery Life Saver or by breaking your system down into multiple sub-series and use the 12V or 24V units.
Example a 48V system utilizing four 12 volt batteries could use four 12V Power Pulses or two 24V Power Pulses or one 48V unit.
Sulfation is the buildup of lead sulfate (PbSo4) crystals on your battery plates.
All lead acid batteries will suffer from the effects of sulfation. It is the unwanted byproduct of the natural double sulfate chemical reaction that generates electricity within the battery. When a battery is in use, the active material on your battery’s plates, lead and lead dioxide, react with the electrolyte or sulfuric acid (H2SO4) to generate electricity. During this process a thin layer of non-crystalline solid lead sulfate is deposited on the plates.
During charging, this sulfate deposit is supposed to be converted back to lead dioxide and sulfuric acid restoring the battery back to its pre-discharged state. However, the process is not perfect. Incomplete charging or prolonged time left in a discharged state will convert the amorphous (non-crystalline) lead sulfate into a hardened crystalized form diminishing the ability of the battery to reach full charge.
No. The highest voltage in your series is 24V. Your strings are connected together via a parallel connection which keeps the four 6V batteries in the 24 volt series at 24V.
You will want to use the PP-24-L, BLS-24N or if your battery bank is larger the BLS-24/36-Multi-F
Yes an onboard desulfator with help extend the life of your batteries. However, the way the question is phrased has me wondering if you believe this is a maintainer as well. It is not. If your charger does not maintain the battery, you may wish to consider the JAC0348 48 volt charge maintainer to help keep the batteries healthy in the off season.
