Caring for your mining locomotive  Battery

Often taken for granted until things go wrong, electric mining locomotive batteries require maintenance and care to the same degree as the locomotive motor and mechanics of the locomotive itself. Traditional locomotive batteries are composed of lead-acid cells, which need a full recharge everytime to prevent capacity loss and to bring up all the cells up to the same voltage. The battery of a mining locomotive is like the heart in a body. If it isn’t regularly maintained and looked after, it may fail.

We shall be happy to maintain your mining locomotive batteries and help free you of the stress of a battery problem deep in the underground mines. Call us now to schedule a free health check up of your mining locomotive battery +91 9686 448899
