Chem-Rod® Low-Impedance Chemical Grounding Electrode

The Chem-Rod grounding rod solves problems found with conventional grounding rods by requiring less real estate and fewer electrodes to meet specified resistance. Each Chem-Rod creates an optimal electrical connection to earth with a large conductive surface for enhanced grounding rod lightning protection.

LECWELD®

The LEC lightning protection product LECWELD metal is an easy and efficient field welding system, requiring no outside power source or equipment for lightning safety installations. The process forms a solid copper molecular bond that does not loosen or corrode throughout the life of the host structure. (Compare to compression connectors, split bolts, crimp connectors, brazing, etc.)

Grounding Rod

For the successful implementation of a lightning protection system, grounding electrodes plays a significant role. Proper grounding is an important safety measure and results in uninterrupted operations. The Earth grounding system helps in safely dissipating electricity from lightning to the ground. Ground wires are typically copper wires and can be bare or insulated.

Purpose of Grounding Rods
A grounding rod is designed to stabilize the excessive voltage and transfer it to the ground from the network of grounding rods. Not only that, these rods also helps to dump static charge (usually from lightning) into the earth. The excess of static electricity within electronic equipment, such as home computers, can create operational problems. Grounding wires help in protecting the equipment as well.

Where does a Grounding System Terminates?
The main aim of the grounding system is to get electricity flow to the ground. This is achieved by connecting the earth ground wire to the grounding electrodes in the ground. It can be done with the help of metal water supply pipes or through metal rods driven into the ground.

For over 45 years the expert team of Lightning Eliminators has helped corporations worldwide to increase their safety and reliability using a variety of advanced testing services and best quality grounding products developed keeping lightning protection in mind. Some of these products include:

1. In-Tank Potential Equalizer (IPE) is made specifically for to combat the problem of internal electrical discharges and the subsequent ignition of the vapors inside tanks.
2. Retractable Grounding Assembly (RGA® 750) for Floating Roof Tanks
3. Chem-Rod Grounding Electrode to help achieve your target resistance using fewer electrodes and less real estate.
4. The Smart Ground Testing Service is an advanced ground audit system.
5. Grounding Augmentation Fill
