Specially developed earth enhancement compound achieving extreme conductivity

Uninterrupted contact of equipments with the ground is called earthing or grounding installation. The concept of earthing revolves around the fact that the electric potential of the conductive mass of the earth is zero. Understanding the risk in the case when non current carrying conductors get electrified which is when they are not properly earthed. In such case, the equipment might get damaged or the person will receive electric shock.
Maintaining the earth potential by the setting up an earthing installation is a mandate as well as base to every electric/ electronic equipments and circuits. When in case of non-provision of proper equipment and body earthing, catastrophes are more likely to occur.
An electrical fault or any electrical issue when detected in an equipment, the grounding setup installed will avert this excess fault to the ground through the setup grounding electrode. This detour in voltage or this electric fault is a necessity to avoid any case of electrocution. Highly sensitive and sophisticated machineries need such a setup for its continuous and safe operation until its prescribed life.

To establish a secure path for the fault current, you need to connect exposed part and sensitive equipments to the earth mass via a ground electrode that provides zero potential surface around. An accurate and a strategic design that is compliant to relevant standard ensures that no overcurrent can make its way into the protected device rather they would be easily dissipated to the ground.
As per NBC 2016, maintenance free earthing is recommended which consist of – Copper bonded steel rod, Earth enhancement compound and jointing techniques. Earth enhancement compound referred herewith absorbs huge amount of water and hence enhances the soil conditions. When we talk of such compounds – you need to choose the compound with the required composition. Choice of exact quality and quantity of earth enhancement compound is to meet all requisites of the grounding system.
The earthing or grounding system is basically the installation of grounding rod surrounded by hygroscopic and conductive earth enhancement material to enhance the soil conditions. Earlier we used mixture of salt and charcoal for backfilling process which is least in practice at present owing to its drawbacks such as -this mix requires regular watering and maintenance making it hectic and troublesome technique. JAM LITE- Earth Enhancement Compound compliant to IEC 62561-7 and IEEE 80 works on soil conditions offering extreme conductivity and moisture retaining attributes.
