Power generation

Metmin is the authorised distributor of the Rocket battery brand, a product of the Global Power Source Group of companies. As a brand, Rocket has dominated the power backup industry since 1952. Metmin provides innovative and viable power solutions through its products and services, with an assurance of unparalleled quality.

Metmin supplies Rocket batteries to a wide range industries including banking, insurance, automobile, telecom, solar, government departments, colleges, schools and other institutions. Metmin has a very large installation base of 2V and 12V valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries across the country and offers a wide selection of products that are designed to meet various power requirements. 2V cells VRLA HI-Power These are 2v solar photovoltaic application cells. They are assembled in hard rubber containers with plate holding cradles, tubular positives and lattice grid pasted negatives made with special lead alloy for minimised gas generation during service. The cells have microporous ceramic vent plugs which allow the liberated gases to escape allowing the water drops to trap within cells in order to reduce the topping up frequency. There are level indicators on the cells that indicate the requirement of topping up during service which is once every year. HI-Power solar photovoltaic application cells can be used for solar street lighting, home lighting, as well as in windmill power generating systems. Rocket inverter or UPS battery These cells are the future generation of tubular batteries with low maintenance with the following features:

  • Specially mixed with corrosion resistant alloy for spines and grids
  • Tubular gauntlets of high brushing strength with high performance for positive plates
  • Specially made cross ribbed P.E. separator envelopes
  • Electrolyte volume per AH is higher than ordinary tubular batteries
  • Tower type design requires less floor space
  • Specially designed vent plugs to trap water loss

Rocket inverter cells can be in UPS, elevator backup and alarm systems. The cells can also be used in domestic inverters, hospitals, labs and hotels. 12V (VRLA) These batteries are mostly used for UPS applications in stand by and cyclic use. With superior gas recombination technology, more than 90% of the electrolyte is reused resulting into very low water loss. The 12V (VRLA) battery is maintenance free. This battery can be used in telecom communication and security, UPS, fire alarm and security and solar systems.

The Dynatrap range The Dynatrap is engineered for 3-way protection. Firstly, a UV fluorescent bulb produces a warm light that attracts insects. Then second a lure, an exclusive Ti02 titanium dioxide-coated surface which produces CO2 – the same gas humans emit when they exhale. This gas is irresistible to mosquitoes. Third, a powerful, yet quiet vacuum fan which sucks insects into the retaining cage where they dehydrate and die. The traps have a unique twist on and off feature which ensures that any insects still alive in the retaining cage will not escape when the trap is turned off. Dynazap Fully extendable to over 3 feet in length, the Dynazap has a telescopic head that bends in multiple directions for hard-to-reach areas. It has a safety switch that only works when the trigger button is on and uses two AA batteries.
