Pipe Earthing

Pipe Earthing VS Chemical Earthing – Explained with Diagram

Electrical circuits are involved with an adequate amount of energy to cause electric shock hazards in case of a fault. A fault can occur due to power surges, leakages due to faulty equipment, lightning strikes hitting directly or indirectly and so on. So it is necessary to focus on the …

Installation of Lightning Conductor – Step by Step Guide

A lightning conductor is a thick copper wire or rod fixed onto the tallest point of a building and connected to the ground using a long metallic rod. It protects the building from lightning strikes by providing a low resistance path for the current to flow to the earth rather …

Earthing - Bonding

How are Earthing and Bonding different?

Earthing and bonding are two technical terms we come across when we deal with the safety aspect of an electrical system. We have all heard about earthing that is done for safety purposes during the electrical installation, but do we give much thought when it comes to electrical bonding. Both …

Exothermic Welding

How to Use Exothermic Welding?

Exothermic welding, also known as exothermic bonding, thermite welding (TW), and thermit welding, is a welding technique that permanently joins conductors using molten metal. An exothermic reaction of a thermite composition heats the metal, and no external source of heat or current is required. An aluminothermic reaction between aluminium powder …

Down Conductor

Role of Down Conductors in Lightning Protection

The electrically conductive connection between the air-termination system and the earth-termination system is the down conductor system. The purpose of down-conductor systems is to safely transport intercepted lightning current to the earth-termination system without causing excessive temperature spikes that could harm the structure. It must be mounted to ensure that …

Earth Pit – Technical Aspects & Construction

An Earth Pit is a type of enclosure used in earthing systems to access and maintain the earth electrodes and other components of the earthing system. It is a type of underground box, typically made of reinforced concrete, that is installed at the site of the earthing system. The Earth …
