The lightning arrester helps in protecting against lightning strikes. It provides a low impedance path to the ground for the current. Lightning arrester has a very strong central ion generating system that generates ions and it does not require any external source of power supply. It works on the principle of Corona Discharge.
In Corona Discharge Technology a region of plasma is produced to ease the flow of current. This helps the lightning arrester capture all the voltage of the lightning without damaging the essential equipment on target.

What is Lightning Arrester?

A lightning arrester, also known as a lightning isolator, is a device used on electric power transmission and telecommunication systems to protect the system’s insulation and conductors from the damaging effects of lightning. A lightning arrester typically has a high-voltage terminal and a ground terminal. Many people search as “Arrester Lightning” nothing wrong with that.

Types of Lightning Arresters

There are two types of Lightning Arresters are there that is commonly used-
1. ESE Lightning Arrester
2. Conventional Lightning Arrester

What is ESE Lightning Arrester?

ESE (Early Streamer Emission) Lightning Arrester is also known as Air Terminal or Ionizing Lightning Rod is a cutting edge external lightning protection system and it is a safe and reliable solution to prevent direct lightning strikes on your building premises or on solar installations.

The other name of the ESE lightning arrester is known as Active Lightning Arrester, which offers an improved Radius of protection, allowing you to reduce the number of lightning arresters and down conductors needed for your building or solar project while still providing comprehensive protection. The lightning bolt begins by traveling through a downward leader that propagates in jumps in any direction. When the bolt hits the ground, It can strike any object. The lightning rod’s goal is to become the bolt’s point of discharge in order to achieve a controlled impact with no damage.

To anticipate the descent of lightning and capture it before any other object within its protection area, the ESE air terminal emits a continuous upward leader with a time of the advance.

The ESE lightning arrester protection radius is determined by the ESE’s time of advance – The more the upward leader anticipates, the higher the downward leader is captured and prevents lightning strikes in a larger area.

ESE lightning arrester can be installed in any type of structure, providing a desired and controlled point of impact for a lightning strike.
Moreover, the ESE lightning arrester allows for the protection of open areas as well as objects on the building rooftop and the surrounding area due to the fact that the time of advance provides the broad protection volume.

What is Conventional Lightning Arrester?

A conventional lightning arrester is working as a conductor that is mounted on the top of a tower/building and is connected to the ground via earthing strips and or a wire, for the protection of the building or a tower at the time of sky lightning. If lightning strikes the building firstly it strikes the lightning arrester and conducts all the fault current to the earth via wire without harming any life, electrical and electronic equipment and property. A lightning arrester is made up of copper/ aluminium and the down path is made up of Aluminium/copper/ GI Strips or wire. Lightning arresters are installed in high-rise buildings, monuments, structures, bridges to prevent and protect from lightning damages.

What is Spike in Lightning Arrester?

A spike Lightning Arrestor provides lightning protection for tall or isolated buildings; this conventional lightning arrester is installed on the building’s roof. Lightning arresters of the conventional type are special grounding systems designed to safely conduct the extremely high voltage currents associated with lightning strikes.
Features:
● Outstanding performance
● Extraordinary strength
● Long life span
● Excellent electrical dissipation capacity
● No antenna

How does an electrical arrester work?

When potentially hazardous lightning strikes, the arrester activates and directs the lightning to the earth, where it dissipates harmlessly. It’s important to remember that an arrester does not stop lightning because doing so would be dangerous. It does, in fact, limit and mitigate the electrical charge, but the more accurate term is diverted, as it provides a safe path for lightning to take instead of passing through your important electrical devices.

Where do you put a lightning arrester?

Each lightning rod must be connected to at least two down conductors and must be installed at least 2 meters above the area it protects (including antennas, refrigerating towers, roofs, and tanks).

What is a Surge Arrester?

Surge arresters are types of protective devices that are used to limit voltage on equipment by bypassing or discharging surge currents. It aids in the prevention of continuous flow, directs it to the ground, and is capable of repeating this process.

Does black attract lightning?

Others believe that if you go outside during a thunderstorm, you should not use a black umbrella or wear a black dress because lightning strikes black objects more frequently. Fortunately, the superstition that lightning preferentially strikes black objects is not true, as it is neither scientifically nor logically proven.

Features and advantages of Lightning arrester:

  • High voltage bearing capacity
  • Optimum strength
  • High performance
  • Low subsistence required.
  • No periodic maintenance is required
  • Long durability
  • On-site easy installation.
  • Petrochemical Stations
  • LNG stations
  • Nuclear stations
  • Food Processing industries
  • Water Treatment Plants
  • Building protection Units.

We are offering the Lightning Arrester For Building

There are 12 types of lightning arresters. Some of the important types are mentioned below:

  • Rod Gap Arrester.
  • Sphere Gap Arrester.
  • Electrolytic Arrester.
  • Multiple-Gap Arrester.
  • Impulse Protective Gap Arrester.
  • Electrolytic Arrester.
  • Expulsion Type Lightning Arrester.
  • Valve Type Lightning Arrester.
  • Thyrite Lightning Arrester.
  • Auto valve Arrester.
  • Metal Oxide Lightning Arrester

No. It’s important to note that an arrester does not stop lightning. It does, in fact, frontiers and alleviates the electrical charge, but sidetrack is the accurate term, as it sort of gives the lightning a safe journey to travel, preferably than through your valuable electrical devices.

Surge Arrester preserves the system from lightning, switching, electrical blemishes, and other guests’ voltage and surges while Lightning Arrester is principally used for lightning strikes and associated surges.

The current versus time graph shows clearly that lightning is neither AC nor DC.
