|system with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) approval. It continuously |
conditions the soil to provide a low resistant path to earth for unwanted
electrical current. Resistance actually lowers over time.
ELECTROLYTIC GROUNDING SYSTEM (EGS) provides the lowest
resistance to ground regardless of the amount of moisture, type or chemical
content of the soil. This is the most stable method of grounding known.
This system is an efficient way to provide grounding because it can replace up
to 8 conventional copper clad metal ground rods. EGS in dry soil will provide
an efficiency over driven ground rods of 300% to 800%. By eliminating the
number of conventional ground rods you eliminate the amount of land and
labor required to create a low resistant ground field. This can be a big savings
in time, labor and materials.
The EGS is designed to provide protection for sensitive electronics, personnel
and property. Electrolytic grounding is presently being used by many power
companies, utilities, cellular companies, private companies, railroads,
governmental agencies and hospitals to protect their personnel, capital
equipment, electronic equipment and communication equipment. These
systems are used throughout the world, wherever traditional grounding will not
provide the protection required.
EGS comes in two configurations, horizontal and vertical. The horizontal
system is made for installation in a trench. This type is used when the site is
rocky or difficult to excavate or drill. The vertical system is made to be place in
a pre-drilled hole. The EGS can be placed under pavement, concrete slabs or
inside a building.
ELECTROLYTIC GROUNDING SYSTEM (EGS) can be used for:
|Telephone communication buildings|
|Power company substation sites and transmission poles|
|Microwave and cellular communication sites|
|Facilities that need to be protected from lightning|
|AC power systems|
|Protection of sensitive electronic systems and computers|
|Elimination of power surges and transient currents|
|Elimination of static charge and stray current|
|Signal crossings for railroads and trolley systems|
|FM & AM Radio stations and towers|
