Main advantages of modern technology NDP cells over expensive & flat plate Plante battery type

Plante Battery Microtex NDP Tubular plate battery Remarks
Heavy grid & thin layer of active material on surface of grid Tubular spine grid. Spines made at incredibly high hydraulic pressures up to 150 Bar. The active material is packed in a tubular bag Active material during cycling in Plante battery will shed down. Whereas in Tubular plate OPzS battery, the active material will hold in the tubular bag.
Cover bulging & cover cracks during life due to normal positive plate growth Special terminal bush design will allow the positive terminal pole to travel up to 12mm & keeps 100% seal against acid & gases No failure due to plate growth in service life in Microtex OPzS batteries
Average cycle life High cycle life Life cycles 75% C4 (IEC)
Footprint 90% more than Microtex NDP batteries Weight is less than Plante battery The life cycle does not justify the high cost
Popular in use before 1960's Microtex is having experience in making tubular batteries for 52 years Tubular plate battery technology has taken over the redundant plante battery from 1960 onwards & proven worldwide
Oldest conventional design Microtex uses latest appropriate European designs with modifications for hot tropical climates like in India Gives excellent performance in service
Plante battery plate processing is critical & produces lot of effluents Plate processing is not critical as plante & produces lot less effluents Microtex OPzS batteries are produced in an environment friendly factory

Microtex 2V NDP cells are the most popular battery in the power sector
