Grounding/EarthingGrounding Products and Services
Proper grounding is critical to personnel safety and uninterrupted operations, serving as the foundation for a complete lightning protection system. For over 45 years we’ve helped companies around the world increase their safety and reliability using a combination of advanced testing services and superior grounding products designed with lightning protection in mind.
In-Tank Potential Equalizer® (IPE®)
The In-Tank Potential Equalizer (IPE) is made specifically for non-metal and lined tanks in order to combat the problem of internal electrical discharges and the subsequent ignition of the vapors inside tanks. Its no-points design is safer, more economical and corrosion resistant.
Floating roof tanks are always at risk from fires caused by lightning strikes. The award winning Retractable Grounding Assembly 750 (RGA 750) reduces this risk by creating a low-impedance bond between the roof and shell. The RGA 750 is cost effective, easy to install, and virtually maintenance free.
The patented Chem-Rod creates the optimal earth connection with a large conductive surface, electrolytic salts and specially formulated backfill. Available in a variety of configurations, Chem-Rods help achieve your target resistance using fewer electrodes and less real estate.
Smart Ground is an advanced ground audit system that produces highly accurate results, even on energized systems. Smart Ground includes computer modeling, a complete professional analysis to IEEE/IEC standards and practical recommendations to improve your grounding system.
Using low resistance backfill for better grounding. Proper grounding is critical to personnel safety and uninterrupted operations but local soil conditions often make it difficult to achieve target resistance.
