Earthing Electrode is a highly conductive material used to protect life and electrical equipment bypassing any unwanted lightning current, fault current to the ground. It is made of heavy grade metals like Galvanized Iron (GI), Copper (Cu), Zinc, Aluminum etc. There are two most common types of the electrodes: Chemical and Conventional.
Conventional type electrode: Generally a very long (30 to 200 feet) GI Pipe is used as the main electrode. Other than the metallic rod, nothing is used in this system. Need periodic maintenance jobs to ensure moisture around the pit.
Chemical Gel Electrode: Made of GI Pipe and chemical compound. Pipe in pipe or strip in pipe is used. Inner shell is protected with chemical compound. After being used for many years, if outer electrode get damaged, still inner electrode is protected. Generally is it not more 10 feet long. So, easy to install and no need any maintenance. It is cost effective, durable and long lasting solution. Besides it much better than conventional type electrode. The whole electrode is inserted inside the soil with highly conductive, non corrosive chemical compound which keep moisture around the electrode.
Chemical Earthing Compound: Chemical composition that enhances conductivity of the grounding system. It is also known as Backfill Compound, Grounding Compound or simply BFC. It is used to increase the conductivity of the earthing electrodes, especially chemical gel electrodes. Earthing Compound helps to keep the moisture in the soil around the grounding electrode. It is a completely safe compound and can be kept anywhere.
