What are Electrical Earthing systems:
An effective grounding system is a fundamental requirement of any electrical systems for operational and safety aspects/reasons. With the help of modern technologies and industry-standard practices, we offer high-quality services when it comes to earthing, lightning protection and grounding safety. Without a good grounding system safety of equipment and human life are in danger. Essentially, every electrical installation needs a reliable grounding system. A Good grounding system is important for
- Human/Life Safety
- Limiting damage to electrical equipment in case of fault / lightning
- Correct operation of the electricity supply network and to ensure good power quality
GIMZ Engineering Services with the help of modern technologies and industry-standard practices has designed and developed proper assessment and inspection methods to ensure grounding/earthing system, lightning protection systems, and electrical safety conforming all the international standards.
Key Attributes of our grounding systems
- Provides low resistance electrical connection to the earth and Gives flexibility in adopting any grounding system design.
- Offers a stable grounding system which contains a corrosion inhibitor to protect copper and is compatible with plate, Rod, Strip electrodes.
- Comprehensive solution as per national and international standards BS-7430 & IEEE-80, IEC 62561-7 (For backfill compound), and IEC-60364-5 for a permanent solution to lower earth resistance.
- Wenner’s 4-point Soil Resistivity Testing Method to develop a cost-effective and efficient electrical grounding system.
We at GIMZ Engineering, design and manufacture the components to meet various national and international standards and ensure reliable and robust grounding system.
We offer pure copper rods with lab test reports for earthing and grounding of critical equipment. We also offer copper bonded earthing rods with higher tensile strength as a cost effective solution with durability and less susceptible to corrosion, conforms to the latest IEC standards.
Other than conventional earthing electrodes we offer EGR (Electrolytic Grounding Rod) which provides a low-impedance ground in locations of high soil resistivity. With EGR as an electrode, the grounding system dissipates lightning energy and other dangerous electrical fault currents, even in sandy or rocky soil conditions very effectively.
A comprehensive range of copper and aluminum conductors are available in each of the main world standard formats, i.e. flat tape, solid circular and stranded. Additionally each format is available in a variety of conductor sizes, to meet different earthing requirements.
Soil Enhancement compounds:
Most people tend to avoid spending money on the costly electrical safety system. However, another affordable solution is ‘Earthing Chemical,’ made from charcoal-based earthing that helps prevent shock and any other electrical hazard. The conventional compounds include graphite and bentonite, which are useful in retaining the moisture of the soil and reducing the soil’s resistance.
The best advantage of using earthing chemicals is that it is maintenance-free earthing. Also, it is durable as the compound is sealed around the earthing electrode.
Another inexpensive electrical safety system is GEL earthing, which consists of a crystalline mixture responsible for protecting the main earthing electrode in the soil.
Earth Pit Chambers:
An Earthing pit chamber is used to cover the earthing materials and avoid exposure to the environment. HDPE Chambers & covers are ecofriendly, rust proof, heavy duty ,weather proof earth pit made of high grade material-polyethylene and have excellent durability and strength .
Exothermic welding is recommended for critical and sensitive applications. They provide superior joints that are mechanically strong and provide excellent electrical connectivity. It does not corrode & degrade and withstand repeated electrical discharges.
