Chemical Earthing Electrode
Renown Earth is engaged in the manufacture and supply of a wide range of chemical earthing electrodes to our clients and manufactures a wide range of raw materials keeping in mind our customer’s requirements and demands. We have a huge demand for our Chemical Earthing Electrode.
Earthing Electrode is the component of the earthing system, which is indirectly connected to the ground and provides a path for leakage current. In the earthing system, a quite large number of electric currents are required to carry fault current for a short period.
The most preferred material is copper and galvanized steel. Sometimes, aluminum is used for above-ground “bonding,” but most of the standards forbid its use as an earth electrode, due to the risk of accelerated corrosion. The corrosive product is a non-conductive oxide layer, so it may reduce the effectiveness of the earthing.
Why Earthing is Important?
The primary purpose of earthing is to avoid or minimize the danger of electrocution, fire due to earth leakage of current through the undesired path and to ensure that the potential of a current-carrying conductor does not rise with respect to the earth than its designed insulation.
When the metallic part of electrical appliances (parts that can conduct or allow passage of electric current) comes in contact with a live wire, maybe due to failure of installations or failure in cable insulation, the metal becomes charged, and static charge accumulates on it. If a person touches such a charged metal, the result is a severe shock.
To avoid such instances, the power supply systems and parts of appliances have to be earthed so as to transfer the charge directly to the earth. This is why we need Electrical Earthing or Grounding in electrical installation systems.
