What is difference between Chemical Earthing System and Traditional Earthing System?
What is Chemical Earthing System?
In Chemical Earthing system, chemical powder is used instead of salt and coal. In any ordinary earthing, salt and coal are placed on top of the electrode. When the chemical earthing, the chemical powder is placed over the electrode.
Two types of powders are used in chemical earthing system. One is Carbon powder and the other is Bentonite powder. Carbon powder is black in colour while bentonite powder is brown in colour. Earthing with carbon powder is used in a normal place while earthing with bentonite powder is used in a dry place.
|Chemical Earthing System||Traditional Earthing System|
|It is based on pipe in pipe technology or flat in pipe technology||It is based on single strip with GI and copper plate earthing
|Less space only 8 to 10-inch bore required||More space 2ft x 2ft bore required
|Less maintenance, no need to pour water regularly||Required regular maintenance in every 3 month
|Less corrosion||More corrosion
|Long life 10 to 15 years||Less than 10 years
|Cost effective solution||Costly solution
The benefits of Chemical Earthing System are as follows:
Reduces the resistance of the soil.
It does not need water like earthing like salt and coal so it is also called maintenance-free earthing.
Chemical earthing life is longer.
It gives us stable earth resistance in all seasons.
