What's So Trendy About Chemical Earthing That Everyone Went Crazy Over It?

Some of the common terms that are used in safety industry for the safety of electrical equipments such as chemical earthing electrode/chemical earthing rod/ GI Earting Electrode etc.

In order to know these terms we have to know first what is earthing ?

Earthing is a process or method that transmits the instant electrical discharge directly to the ground via electrical cables and low resistance wires. To put it another way, earthing is the process of directly sharing electrical charge with the earth. Earthing protects devices and the power system from malfunction and electrical damage. The primary function of earthing is to reduce the load when the electrical system overloads.

Chemical earthing is when we use chemical powder in place of salt and coal, and bentonite powder is used for chemical earthing. The benefit of bentonite powder is that it can maintain moisture levels in rocky terrain and dry areas because it can work as backfill material to absorb moisture and lower the resistance to the earth.

Ordinarily, coal and salt are used in ordinary earthing and are placed on top of the Electrode.

Three types of Chemical Earthings are-

  1. GI Earthing Electrode
  2. Pure Copper Electrode
  3. Copper Bonded Electrode

In areas with high soil resistivity, a chemical Earthing electrode provides a low-

impedance ground. The system, when used in conjunction with Reslow Grounding Minerals, dissipates lightning energy and other dangerous electrical fault currents, even in sandy or rocky soil conditions the same work is done by the GI Earthing electrode which is widely used to prevent accidents caused by accumulation in telecommunication towers, microwave antennas, residential areas, and industrial areas. GI(Galvanized Iron) Earthing Electrodes provide a low impedance ground in areas with high sol resistivity.

Earth rods and their fittings are used to provide the interface to ground in all soil conditions in order to achieve satisfactory earthing systems in overhead and underground electricity distribution and transmission networks -providing high fault current capacity on low, medium, and high voltage substations, towers, industries, and so on.
