INTRODUCTION The earth is made up of materials that are essential conductive.

A fault current will flow to the earth through the live conductor, provided it is earthed. This is to prevent a potentially live conductor from rising above the safe level. All exposed metal parts of an Electrical installation or electrical appliance must be earthed. McML recommends Maintenance Free Earthing LORESS Highlights 1.Copper bonded steel electrodes for faster dissipation of fault current. 2. High fault current carrying capacity. 3. Low in resistance and impedance. 4. No salt& charcoal. Instead, a highly conductive, non corrosive earth enhancing compound is used. 5.Electrodes are easily driven until they reach natural soil. 6.Rigid boltless connections. 7.CPRI tested.

This system consists of Electrodes ,Couplers and Earth enhancing compound.

Lightning Conductor is a product to protect large field effect from one point by becoming active with the lightning risk due to increasing atmospheric electrical field effect in lightning weathers. The head part of CLASS-A E.S.E Lightning Condutor

is formed by four main parts. 1. Air Terminal 2. Ion generator 3. Accelerator and Atmospheric Electrodes 4. Grounding Connection Terminal.

The Lightning Conductor is produced in the cross section and in the quality that can carry the biggest lightning observed. It is equipped with ion generator, induction coil and protective high impedence. This generator is placed in the special epoxy resin. So, ion generator is protected against the negative effects of external environment. Accelerator and atmospheric electrodes are designed in a way that can be charged with different potentials and with this feature, it is aimed to make work the electrodes as both additional ionization producing resource and as accelerator. Grounding connection terminal, makes the ground connection of the head .At the same time connection with the roof pole is provided with the pipe that the terminal exists. The products of CLASS-A E.S.E.Lightning Conductors are produced with completely rustproof materials and this feaure is documented by TUV certificate. Products resistance to lightning current is tested in BET laboratory. Early ionization interval and according to it early ionization way is documented by the tests made in the ICMET laboratory. The most important factor in CLASS-A E.S.E.Lightning conductors is protetion radius. It is dependent on protection diameter level calculation and the ^T value, which is found in the products test results. Protection radius is calculated according to the protection levels (complying with the standard NFC17-103).

EXOTHERMIC WELDING PROCESS The exothermic process is a simple and efficient method of welding copper to copper or copper to steel. The welding process is a molecular weld. It has the same melting point as copper The major advantage is that no external power is required in the process. It uses high temperature reaction of powdered copper oxide and aluminum. The reaction takes place in a semi-permanent graphite mold. MOLD: The mold is made of semi-permanent graphite and is used for making the exhothermic connection.Under normal usage , these high temperature graphite mold can last for an average of 100 or more connections

WELD POWDER: This powder is the one which is melted along with steel disc from the weld. FLINT GUN: When making a connetion flint igniter are used to ignite the starting material. MOLD HANDLE CLAMP:

Mold handle clamps are required for all molds for fixing and locking the mold to the right position. MOLD CLEANING BRUSH: Slag can be cleaned from the molds by using a brush. The brush is used to clean the graphite mold without damaging the mold.

BENEFITS: >>Permanent molecular bond. >>No external power or heat source required >>Welded connections never get loosened. >>Current carrying capacity equal to or greater than that of the conductor. >>Electrical resistance doesnt increase. >>Minimal installation training required.
