Chemical Earthing : A low-maintenance alternative of earthing to secure your buildings

Updated: Oct 11, 2021

Chemical Earthing is a process, which involves protection of structures like buildings, houses and industries from an electrical surge from lightning with the use of specific compounds and electrodes. As compared to the conventional earthing, chemical earthing proves to be an effective option, owing to a wide range of advantages.


Below mentioned are the range of benefits that provide an added advantage to chemical earthing, which is why a chemical earthing system can prove to be beneficial at your houses, buildings, etc.

The benefits mentioned provide a premium package to transform the way you provide safety with upgraded earthing equipment : The chemical Earthing. So, here, we are going to discuss how chemical earthing results in less maintenance, resulting in lower maintenance costs.


In a conventional earthing process, a plate usually of Copper or Galvanized Iron is used. As we know, the process of earthing is carried out to reduce the resistivity of the soil. There are some points, due to which having a conventional earthing system can be a daunting task. As the Copper/GI Rod is constantly in contact with the charcoal and salt used, it results in the metal corrosion. Also, it is a cumbersome process to install, and maintain the conventional earthing, owing to the regular maintenance of watering the earthing pit. This pouring results in mud forming, making soil lose its utility.


As opposed to the conventional earthing process, a chemical earthing setup consists of a Chemical Earthing Rod : The ACTROD, containing a flat strip packed with superior quality highly conductive material, and sealed from both the ends. Thus, the utility of the chemical earthing setup is more, and it gets the ability to withstand high levels of heat generated.


In a conventional earthing, charcoal and salts are used, where the salt used dissolves in water with time, and dries up gradually leading to no utility. However, the salts used in the chemical earthing process have a peculiarity of not dissolving in the water. They also do not dry up with time, as compared to the material used in the conventional earthing.


The conventional earthing involves pouring of water, which is mandatory at regular intervals. It creates mud, making the conventional earthing lose its utility. As opposed to that, chemical earthing guarantees a maintenance free earthing, where there is no need to pour water at regular intervals, except in the sandy soil.


Owing to all these advantages, a chemical earthing system promises a long life for securing your home with an efficient earthing system.
