In the grounding system, the ground rods ( earth rods ) are able to provide physical connection with the and the instrument will dissipate current into it. Generally, there are two types of electrodes:Natural
- They are intrinsic and include the metal underground pipe, metal frame of the buildings and the reinforcing bars of concrete foundations. Man-Made
- They are installed to improve the performance of grounding system. This includes wire mesh wire meshes, metallic plates, and buried copper conductor etc.
The Copper Ground Rods are the most widely used grounding electrode. We are offering a whole range of Copper Earthing Rods/ Grounding Rods and accessories to meet the electrical industry demands.
Kirkas copper-bonded ground rods are the highest quality ground rods available today. We use a unique manufacturing process, which includes drawing the steel rod to size before the copper bonding process begins. This results in a straighter, harder steel core, making installation easier.
Kirkas uses a continuous electro-plating process over the steel core that results in a permanent molecular bond that provides decades of reliable performance. Our state-of-the-art ISO registered manufacturing facility provides a consistent, high-quality finished product that is used in millions of installations across the country.
The copper bonded rods are highly appreciated and recognized worldwide due to its better working life. Based on solid rod technology, the Copper Bonded Rods are electrically and mechanically robust solution complying national & international standards.
These rods are molecularly bonded with 99.99% pure Electrolytic Grade Copper (Cu) over a low carbon tensile steel rod, with the thickness of 250 micron copper coating. This process helps ensure a long-lasting molecular bond between the copper layer and a steel core.
We recommend using copper bonded ground rods in most soil conditions, because the copper coating will not slip or tear when driven, nor will it crack if the rod is bent. Copper bonded ground rods have a high tensile carbon steel core and they provide a low resistance path to ground.
