Storage Tank Lightning Protection
Floating Roof Tanks are always at risk from fires caused by lightning strikes. The award winning lightning protection design of the Retractable Grounding Assembly (RGA) reduces the risk of lightning damage and fire by creating a low-impedance bond between the roof and shell. The lightning protection design of the RGA 750 is cost effective, easy to install, and virtually maintenance free.
The In-Tank Potential Equalizer (IPE) lightning protection design 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-point lightning protection design makes it safer, more economical and corrosion resistant.
LEC's lightning protection products include the patented Dissipation Array System (DAS) prevents direct lightning strikes by reducing the electric field to below lightning-collection levels, within the protected area. As a result, DAS lightning protection systems help to prevent downtime and loss of assets, while increasing lightning safety for personnel.
