Microtex robust designs, Railway Track battery - for great performance
Specially designed and engineered for the railway industry, the Microtex TRD batteries feature higher currents and a higher reserve capacity. This augments the usage of these railway track batteries in remote locations where power outages are frequent. This makes it the choice of the Indian Railways & Railway track projects. The 2v cells are constructed with meticulous care & designs. Each cell is housed in a PPCP container & hermetically heat sealed for the life of the battery to avoid any leakage of electrolyte. Electrolyte leakage causes costly corrosion buildup and leakage currents which could damage the costly electronics in the TRD equipment. The foolproof design ensures the railway track battery performs without any troubles throughout its service life.
The balanced active materials in the woven gauntlet positive tubular plate design and construction ensure higher capacity in the same available space. Built to perform in the stringent requirements of the harsh remote areas, these batteries have been serving the Indian railways since 1994 and are the first choice of the Indian railways.
Special designer lead alloys, comprising of very low antimony selenium lead with special grain refiners added, to provide minimum water consumption, ensure reduced water topping up frequency and making it easier to maintain. The woven engineered gauntlets, with precise porosity, do not rupture or burst in service and are superior to the non-woven gauntlets. The terminals are provided with tin plated copper inserts to eliminate terminal melting and provide better electrical conductivity minimising internal electrical resistance.
Microtex is a Major supplier and supplying railway track batteries to the Indian Railways since 1994.

- Woven Tubular Gauntlets for Tubular plates ensure it will not rupture in service and active material will not leak.
- Special Ceramic Vent Plugs ensure water is trapped & sent back into the cells during gassing when charging
- High quality Copper inserts inside terminal pillars ensure high conductivity & better cranking currents.
- Heavy duty welded intercell connectors with tin plated copper inserts to eliminate melting
Caring for your railway track battery
- Overcharging damages cells: Try to use automatic chargers that switch off once the battery reaches its maximum charge.
- If you don’t possess an auto-charger, set a charge time via alarm clock or other means to check the charging progression in incremental periods.
- Check water levels each month: Level checks are particularly easy with Microtex batteries, as the vent plugs are fitted with visual indicator floats marked red & green
- Always use demineralized water.
- Regularly check for corrosion: Our battery terminals are coated for anti-corrosion properties, though, from time to time it may be necessary to clean the terminals
- Take preventative measures: A thin layer of petroleum jelly will protect your battery terminal from corrosion.
Dictating best practices for those who maintain TRD batteries are one thing, implementing them are another.
