Another important aspect of the earthing system is the backfill compound, Back fill compound which enhances the conductivity of the soil around the electrode. It is a specially developed compound for having quality of high conductivity, non corrosiveness, moisture absorbing & retaining for a longer time. It reduces the soil resistivity; it helps in faster dissipation of fault current, least fluctuation of OHMIC value without the use of Salt. Charcoal etc. around the earthing electrode.
