The KingsWeld Exothermic Welding Process At Kingsmill, we always recommend exothermic welding to join copper conductors together in an earthing system…let’s explain. A proper earthing system uses materials that provide: A low resistivity path to earth (or ground), the capacity to carry high currents, excellent corrosion resistance, and mechanical strength. Why is…
Understanding the benefits of a surge protection device in today’s world is important. As we aim to make economical choices to protect our structures from the impact of Global Warming and whatever plans to come our way this year in 2020, we need to understand why investing in surge protection is so important.
Earth bars are the common point to group together your Earth continuity and equipotential bonding conductors to create a connection to the external earthing system.
Conductive Aggregates help achieve a low resistant Earth Termination Network reading, but Marconite is the best all-around performer. It is maintenance free and especially good for use in dry and arid conditions.
The purpose of an earth termination network or “earthing system”, is to provide a low impedance pathway for both electrical fault and lightning discharge currents to safely dissipate into the ground. At Kingsmill Industries, we stress that the continuous and consistent operation of your earthing system is critical to ensure safety of the electrical installation, building occupants and electronic items contained within.
Lattice Copper Earth Mats are placed in the ground and used as an earth electrode as part of an earthing network.
Kingsmill Earth Rod Clamps are used to connect conductors of various shapes and sizes to the Earth Electrode therefore provide a strong, safe and lasting connection.
Earth Bosses are for welding to steel vessels, tanks and structures etc. Connections to be wrapped with Denso tape to stop ingress of moisture. Kingsmill Industries manufacture an extensive range of Earth Bosses in varying sizes and materials.
