Chemical Earthing System







Copper bonded rods- Superior quality - made of low carbon, high tensile strength steel rods - 99.9% pure electrolytic quality copper is molecularly bonded to nickel coated steel rods ensuring greater performance and double protection 250 microns copper coating as per UL specifications-life span is excellent incorrosive soil. Tinned inspection plate can be provided for the flexibility to have the connecting strips with various other metals (Copper or GI).

Following are the available diameters of the Solid Rods:  


ACE - CU BONDED ELECTRODE ( Strip In Pipe Earthing )

Copper bonded pipes are manufactured from ISI certified mild steel pipes. Copper is molecularly bonded to Nickel sealed steel pipe to avoid copper to steel merging. Bonding is done after all fabrication and drilling, so that no steel part is exposed. Tinning is done over Cu for the connecting plate to avoid bi-metallic corrosion. So that it adopts GI or Cu strip without any problem. Minimum 100 / 250 micron copper coating thickness is suitable for sea-shore area.

Employed in places where soil resistivity is very high where GI pipes cannot be used because of corrosive nature of soil.

What is Chemical Earthing?

Chemical Earthing Rods/Electrodes

Chemical Earthing is a process that lowers the ground rod’s resistivity (to the soil), thus making the ground connection all the better and improving ground resistance by injecting conductive chemicals around a ground rod. It contains the use of a backfill compound, chemical earthing rods/electrodes, lightning arresters, and other components which form an integral part of the earthing system. 

This protects structures like buildings, houses and industries from an electrical surge from lightning with the use of specific compounds and chemical earthing electrodes. 
Atharva Infrastructures offers environment-friendly chemical earthing systems with cost-effective prices that help everyone afford top-notch and excellent quality protection.

Why should you choose Chemical Earthing over conventional earthing?

As the electrode is not in direct contact with soil, it offers enhanced corrosion protection

Longer life of 10-15 years as opposed to 2-5 years of conventional earthing

Better efficiency and current dissipation

Backfill compound used is anti-corrosive, environment friendly and RoHS Certified

Consistent resistance values

Requires small earthing pit

Very low maintenance required because of efficient and anti-corrosive rods

Fast Installation process

The Chemical Earthing Process

There is a highly technical process involved in the installation of a chemical earthing system. The steps involved in this installation are:

  1. A chemical earthing pit is dug into the ground near the establishment where the earthing system is to be installed. 

  2. The earthing pit is filled with              ,Atharva Infrastructures backfill compound. The quantity of the backfill compound varies with electrode length and earthing pit depth.

  3.             , Atharva Infrastructures chemical earthing rods are inserted into the chemical earthing pit with SoilTreat surrounding it. This process of inserting the earthing electrodes into the pit is meticulous and requires highly skilled labor. Atharva Infrastructures takes care of all of these processes for an accurate earthing system installation.

  4. The final step is establishing a connection between the electrical mains and the earthing rods. The earthing rods have a plate for connecting with the electrical mains in the establishment where the earthing system is to be installed. A down conductor is used for this connection. One end of this conductor is connected to the earthing electrode and the other to the electrical mains of the establishment where the earthing installation is in progress.





Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Which material is used in chemical earthing?

A backfill compound and chemical earthing electrodes are used.

What is the difference between chemical earthing and conventional earthing?

Charcoal and Salt used, results in corroding the metal whereas in chemical earthing a highly conductive Backfill compound is used.

Regular maintenance by watering of the pit is must to enhance conductivity whereas in chemical earthing no water curing is required. Works on a fit & forget system.

Earth resistance value fluctuates whereas in chemical earthing Least fluctuation in Earth resistance value.

What do you mean by earthing? Why is it used?

Earthing is a method to connect any electrical installation to the earth for dissipation of extra current surge into the ground. It is used to fulfill a number of functions, such as

  • Safety of persons with respect to electrical hazards.

  • Protection of equipment with respect to electrical hazards.

  • A reference value for reliable, high-quality signals.

  • Satisfactory EMC performance.
