Provided that the above shall not apply to overhead supply lines having protective devices which are effectively bonded to the neutral of supply transformers and conforming to Rule 91 of IE Rules,1956.PowerPoint Presentation: DISCARD PIT TYPE EARTHING–SWITCH TO CHEMICAL PIPE EARTHING! The conventional copper pit type earthing is out of date because:- 1. The water level is going down at most of the geographical areas & therefore one has to dig deep holes may be to the extent of 20-50 mtr. 2. The commonly used substances in pit type earthing were sodium Chloride known as common salt, soft coke & charcoal. 3 . The common salt (sodium chloride) is a hygroscopic substance & it gets dissolved in water & losses its hygroscopic properties when become water itself. 4. The salt is known to be a corrosive electrolyte which decays the pipe and the conductor used for earthing. Due to decay one does not get the consistent ohmic values. 5. The soft coke & charcoal tend to become ash due to heavy heat generated by heavy electric fault currents generated in the system especially at higher voltages at 1.1kv, 3.3kv, 6.6kv, 11kv, 33kv, 66kv &133kv transmission distribution line & at substation.PowerPoint Presentation: 6 . The heat generated is proportional to I 2 Rt (Time in seconds) e.g. if the fault current of 10,000amps in the system with an earth resistance 2 ohms as permitted by IS in 0.01 seconds is given as under. H=I 2 Rt H=10,000x10, 000x2x0.01=20, 00,000 calories =1053 °C This much heat generated in one fault. Assuming 6 faults in a year. Then in a period of four year -24 fault occur , each fault generating 1053 °C & Above. 7. Each fault of this magnitude will turn the soft coke/ charcoal into ash gradually in a period of 3-4 years. The earth system will deteriorate and give larger value of ohmic resistance thereby endangering the entire installation consequently people & property . 8 . If the ohmic values goes up from 2 to 3 ohms because of faulty earth systems heat generated will be 30,00,000 calories (i.e. 1600 °C )this results that the pit type earthing is inefficient , not reliable & cause serious damage to life & property in a period of 3-4 years .PowerPoint Presentation: 9. It is therefore observed that separate watering arrangement required to be made for maintaining moisture through a separate pipe dug along the earthing system. 10. Instead of water producing the moisture in the earth pit the additional quantity of water poured in with a natural rain fall will wash away the charcoal & the soft coke from its main position thereby it will further deteriorate the functioning of the earth system.PowerPoint Presentation: Why install chemical earthing: The above points conclude that pit type earthing is out of date and it is being replaced and preferred over chemical pipe earthing for reasons given below:- 1. The pipe for the chemical earthing are generally 2 mtr or 3mtr in length therefore the earth bore need not more than the 250 to 300mm dia & maximum depth of 3mtr. 2. The moisture is maintained at a small depth of 3mtr by using ground enhancement material, commonly known as GBFC (Grounding Back Fill Compound). 3. The efficacy of the chemical earthing to maintain the moisture which is essential for low ohmic values of earthing resistance is due to use of hygroscopic chemical like aluminum silicate etc. which absorb the moisture but doesn’t get dissolved in the water unlike salt.PowerPoint Presentation: 4. The heat generated due to electric faults developing heat of 1060 °C and above is resisted by CCM (Crystalline Conducive Material) which can withstand upto 2500°C. 5. The CCM is filled in the pipe of appropriate dimension of 50mm or 80mm dia and sealed at both ends . It incorporates the earth conductor of GI strip of suitable size of 30x6mm or 40x6mm depending upon the individual design of manufacturer.PowerPoint Presentation: 6. The CCM filled in the pipe being a good conductor increases the fault current capacity of the system because the pipe is hollow but when filled with CCM it behaves like almost solid pipe. 7. The CCM resists cracking, warping, shrinking, or distortion even when temperature exceed 2500 °C due to severe repeated electric faults which may happen in operations over the year. 8. The GI pipe used are adequately galvanized (80-100 microns) as per IS -3047 1987. 9. Zinc oxide will be formed during the use of the earth system. Zinc oxide has following advantages over the conventional earthing which uses the copper plate or copper conductors:- a) Zinc oxide so formed is insoluble in water. b) Zinc oxide has a unique Dielectric strength that exhibits semiconducting & piezoelectric dual properties. (Unlike in copper where the copper oxide is a bad conductor of electricity & becomes powdered Red Oxide (Copper Oxide) under high fault current that generate high temperatures)PowerPoint Presentation: c) ZnO finds application in Varistors which are used to prevent voltage surges in the electronic devices like mobile phone. d) ZnO is not combustible & used as a fire extinguishant material. CONCLUTION:- The industry, project managers & the electrical consultants find it very convincing to use & specify the chemical pipe earthing which is convenient to install, no maintenance what so ever with a long life of over 15 years.PowerPoint Presentation: a) Sub: Install ALFREDKIM CHEMICAL EARTHING. Prevent Electrical Hazards!! Need for Protection! To p rotect Industrial, commercial, and residential Buildings with proper electrical earthing Reasons: 1. Lightening Damage 2. Electrical leakages 3. Short circuits between phases / between phase and Neutral 4. Surges in Supply line Why Earthing? Effective Earthing in the building protects People, Property and Equipments.PowerPoint Presentation: Result: Protection of persons within the building who are occupants as owners or tenants or employees or visitors or residents Type Of Hazards: Electric fires resulting in loss of Property and loss of Human lives in these divesting tragic fires. Good Earthing: ALFREDKIM chemical earthing is like an insurance f or protection of property , people and equipments. Any compromise on quality or absence of earthing is willful act of inviting electric hazards in the installationPowerPoint Presentation: B. Why Electrical /Electronic fail to perform to optimum in industry and commercial buildings. The electrical /electronic equipment e.g UPS system, Computers, cfl lamps Eapbx , ac/dc VFd ,Speed Drives, CNC Machines, Printing Machines , Machine tools with electronic controls, Welding machines .Lifts ,EOT cranes and all such devices fitted with PCB/electronic cards have tendency to distort the sine wave of AC supply there by causing the resultant unbalanced voltage leading to Higher Voltage between Neutral and earth which lead to higher neutral currents which sometimes are 1.73 times of the phase currentsPowerPoint Presentation: Hazards Prevented: Poor performance of the above equipment resulting in loss of production and loss of man hours i.e idle man hours due to equipment failure or inefficient operation and additional rupee expense on maintenance Malfunctioning of equipments: Why electronic Equipment Malfunction Specially in the IT Industry e.g. call centers, BPO`s and similar industries in particular. The electronic circuits in this equipment are operating at different switching voltages as per the design of the individual manufacturers therefore it is essential that voltages between neutral and earth are maintained to minimum level so that the PCB`s/ electronic cards are not damaged due to high neutral currents and unbalanced voltages.PowerPoint Presentation: b) Why watering is required for New Earth bore? When the pipe earthing /chemical earthing/maintenance free earthing/Gel earthing or whatever name it is called by various manufacturers the watering of the bore is necessary for the following reasons. a. Unlike pit earthing where the salt (Nacl) & coal is used with copper plate, the pit is dug very deep approximately 40ft to 70 ft. depending on soil conditions where the dampness/moisture is achieved at various level of depth. INSTALLATION OF ALFREDKIM CHEMICAL EARTHINGPowerPoint Presentation: b. In case of the modern type of earthing which is free from future maintenance .The watering of the bore prior to installation is necessary for the following reasons. 1. The depth of the bore is either 2m/3m (6ft/10ft) which is much less than the normal depth required in pit earthing. 2. The diameter of the bore is also limited to 200/300mm against the pit earthing which is almost in square meters. 3.Unlike salt which is used in pit earthing which dissolves in water and salt it self becomes water in the course of time and dries it self, thereby loosing the conductivity in surrounding of the pit. Salt itself reacts with copper & makes copper chloride & other corrosive chemicals which corrode the copper plates.PowerPoint Presentation: 4. The GEM used by us absorbs the water upto 13 to 15 times its weight & dosen’t dissolve in the water therefore it retains its moisture property upto the lifetime of the electrode which is more than 25 years as it contains soil friendly materials. 5. Since there is no need to recharge the pit as the GEM will remains moist through out the life, therefore it is desirable and absolutely necessary to keep watering the bore for three to four days continuously before installing the electrode and filling it with GEM so that the GEM will have moist bore available with enough water soaked in the bore due to continuous watering before installation.PowerPoint Presentation: 6. After the installation no watering is necessary for future maintenance in whatever soil condition it has been installed either indoor or outdoor installation. 7. The earthing is quite successful in the normal climatic condition where the average rain fall in a year may not exceed 250mm. This will give enough moisture to the soil. 8. This earthing is being recommended by most of the consultant in desert areas where there is scanty rain fall in desert areas where the water level to achieve the normal dampness is very-very deep.PowerPoint Presentation: 9. Since we are able to achieve required dampness in a depth of 2 to 3meters with continuous watering of the bore &adequate quantity of the GEM filled at the time of earthing which remains moist for the rest of life & maintains the good ohmic values of earth resistance. 10.To conclude the old copper pit type earthing is out of date & maintenance free earthing is easy to install, occupies less space & economical in the long run. CONCLUSION:- The industry, project managers & the electrical consultants find it very convincing to use & specify the chemical pipe earthing which is convenient to install, no maintenance what so ever with a long life of over 15 years.PowerPoint Presentation: c) Subject: - Location of Earthing? Question: Should it be near to the point of application/Equipment or away from it? Answer : It must be near to the point of application. Reason: Please read on! 1. OLD TRADITIONAL SYSTEM :- I) The conventional pit type copper plate Earthing with large Quantity of Charcoal & Salt was requiring large area of about 4’x3’or 6’x4’ & depth used to be 20’ to60’ (7 to 20 mtr)depending on the soil condition. II) This much area was conveniently available in the factories/office premises in earlier days when the space was not constraint.PowerPoint Presentation: III)The distance between the earth pit & the point of application used to be few meters may be 50-100mtrs & therefore to maintain the low resistance of the earthing wire from the earth pit to the machinery the copper wire of 8/10 swg was used. IV) The copper wire thus used was cash & carry item for professional wire cutters who used to cut the wire at the first opportunity there by disconnecting the earthing system & causing an electrical danger to the system .PowerPoint Presentation: 2. PRESENT MODERN SYSTEM :- I) The space is become expensive & in short supply. II) The conventional pit type earthings is very cumbersome, laborious & occupies more space in term of sq. mtr & it is being replaced with chemical pipe earthings. III) The advantages of pipe earthing are :- a) It needs a bore of 250-300mm dia & the depth of 2 to 3 mtr. b) It is a neat & clean installation. c) Doesn’t spoil the look of the office or factory. d) It is conveniently covered up which can be flagged showing the location of the earthing. e) The pipe earthing is a compact unit & can be installed very near to the equipment hardly 2-5 mtr away from the equipment. f) The closeness of the earthing has a advantage of providing very low resistance value to the system which requires less length of the wire ( AS resistance is directly proportional to the length i.e. the smaller the length, it is better for earthing )PowerPoint Presentation: g) Since the length of the earthing is required is very small in the installation of pipe earthings due to nearness to the equipment. h) The G.I. strip of cross section area of 10x3mm or more are used for connecting the pipe electrode to the equipment. I) G.I. wire is not favorite of wire cutters so there are no chances of disconnection of wire cutting or theft. j) The copper wire of 8/10 swg which was used earlier were subjected to more mechanical damages because of very low cross section area & the round wire is more subjected to more cross sectional damage than the rectangular strip of 10x3 mm or aboave. CONCLUSION :- In view of above application the earthing electrode close to the point of application or equipment are more desirable for electrical & electronics equipment which demand low value of ohmic resistance through out the year under all working condition i.e. extreme dry ,extremely cold or wet climates.PowerPoint Presentation: d) Why Neutral Earthing /Grounding 1 All Neutral should have Zero Potential Difference. 2. Why Neutral Voltage is Noticed Now a Days. Reasons for Neutral voltage. A. The use of electronic equipment /ups/computers /CFL lamps/Speed drives etc. These devices on operate at different cut off voltages in the sine wave cycle and hence the sine wave is distorted resulting in the higher PD in the Neutral and cause the flow of currents in the Neutral Circuit which results in the damage of PCB cards and other sensitive components in the electronic circuit/equipments B) The Industrial loads are in general Not Balanced Loads and therefore the line voltages are spill over to Neutral which results into stray currents thereby damaging the electronic equipments/ PCB cards Why Neutral Grounding. A. To maintain the ZERO PD between the Neutral and earth and to ground the Spill over voltages the Neutral is grounded.PowerPoint Presentation: It is therefore very necessary to immediately connect Neutral to the Earth by Solid Permanent contact so that there is no possibility of loose connection /disconnection at any stage OF OPERATION to prevent any electrical mishaps. Method of testing the New Earth Electrode A) Connect the New Electrode to the Neutral of Supply Line by very Good secure Connection Either Bolted or soldered. B) Connect the Volt meter as shown in the Picture (P1) below., C) When the Neutral is properly grounded and the earthing is Successful the voltmeter should give Nearly ZERO voltage between Earth and NeutralPowerPoint Presentation: D) Electricity finds always easier path to flow therefore the spill over voltage in the neutral will go to the newly installed earth electrode. In case earthing is not successful or has higher ohmic value of resistance or loose contact/ disconnection in the earthing circuit the voltmeter will show the undesirable voltage. In case the earthing is ok and correctly done the voltmeter will show almost Zero Volts. Kindly follow the above testing methods and ensure the testing is properly done. CONCLUTION:- The industry, project managers & the electrical consultants find it very convincing to use & specify the chemical pipe earthing which is convenient to install, no maintenance what so ever with a long life of over 15 years.PowerPoint Presentation: SYSTEMS OF GRID EARTHING Reasons of Grid Earthing : - 1. To manage very high fault currents So that the low ohmic value of earth resistance will reduce the effective watt loss thereby controlling the heat generated in the system. 2. To maintain very low level of ohmic values of earth resistance like 0.1 etc. so that the sensitive electrical protective devices& relays used in substations & power houses.PowerPoint Presentation: System at Substations/Power Houses:- 1. The connected loads at your power Houses are heavy & at an extra high voltage as well. 2. The reason for maintaining the value of resistance appears to us for preventing the malfunction of the protective devices & Relays.

Our recommendations are for fifteen earth systems to maintain a long term low ohmic values because of the following factors:- 1. Change of a soil condition for a period of a time is choosing a different location for the earthing system in the same premise. 2. Change of CLIMATE CONDITION: a. Extremely dry climate- SUMMER b. Extremely cold climate- WINTER c. Extremely humid climate- RAINS CONCLUSION :- In view of above application the earthing electrode close to the point of application or equipment are more desirable for electrical & electronics equipment which demand low value of ohmic resistance through out the year under all working condition i.e. extreme dry ,extremely cold or wet climates.PowerPoint Presentation: CORE FEATURES OF ALFREDKIM CHEMICAL EARTHNG • Ultra low resistance grounding electrode. • Make certain maximum safety from electrical system faults. • Maintenance free system, no need to dispense water recurrently. • Maintains dependable & unfailing earth resistance. • Limits the system-to-ground or system-to-frame voltage to values safe for personnel. • Offer a relatively firm & secure system with a minimum of transient over voltages. • Authorize any system fault to ground to be quickly isolated. • Protection against static electricity from friction. • Prevents static charge & stray current accidents.PowerPoint Presentation: • Endow with good grounds for electric process control and communication circuits. • Conductive compound constructs a conductive zone and offers much increased area for peak current dissipation • Low earth resistance. High conductive. • Transmits high peak current repeatedly. Endlessly sustain almost the identical earth resistance value regardless of soil & climate conditions. • Multi-directional dissipation of current. • Stabilize circuit potential with respect to ground and limit overall potential rise. • Eco Friendly, safe, reliable and anti corrosive. • Much stretched life. • Straight forward & trouble free to mount.PowerPoint Presentation: CHEMICALS USED - BENTONITE Bentonite is naturally occuring hydrated Aluminium Silicate. The most important use of Bentonite is based on its natural swelling property.one can surely say that bentonite is most economic natural thickner available to industries. It has ability to absorb water several (15) times its weight and give thickstropic fluid. Chemically Bentonite is HYDRATED ALUMINIUM SILICATE. Chemical Formula : Al2O34SiO2H2O Physical Properties : Sp. Gravity : 2.4 Bulk density : 0.6 PH of 10% Aqueous solution : 8 to 8.8 Chemical Composition : Silica : 54.26 Aluminium : 18.34 Ferric Oxide : 10.91 TiO2 : 01.25PowerPoint Presentation: The Exceptional Nature of Graphite - Graphite - Properties The most significant property of graphite is its dimensional strength and stability at ultra-high temperatures. It resists cracking, warping, shrinking, or distortion even when temperatures exceed 2500 o C. Graphite is resistant to both thermal shock and chemical attack, and can act as either a thermal conductor or insulator, depending on the application. At the same time, it is electrically conductive and naturally lubricating. Essentially inert, graphite is considered to be environmentally safe and non-toxic. While standard synthetic graphite is quite pure, extremely pure grades are available for special applications such as research and elemental analysis. It can also be processed into a variety of forms from felts and foils to composites and precisely machined components.PowerPoint Presentation: Uses of Graphite Application - Why Graphite Works Crucibles : High purity. Excellent resistance to thermal shock and chemical attack. Non-wetting by most molten metals. Electrical Heating Elements : With electrical properties falling between those of metals and ceramics, the electrical resistivity can be varied over a considerable range. Bushings : Self-lubrication and durability in the absence of petroleum-based lubricants, at temperatures to 1,200 F Sintering Trays and Boats : Thermal stability, low wettability and low specific heat. EDM Electrodes : Electrical conductivity, resistance to wear from electrical arcing and excellent machinability into complex shapes.PowerPoint Presentation: Molds : Dimensional stability, low wettability and high purity. Seal Faces : Self-lubrication, dimensional stability and resistance to chemical attack. Continuous Casting Dies : Dimensional stability, excellent machinability high thermal conductivity and self-lubrication.PowerPoint Presentation: UTTRAKHAND ELECTRICITY REGULATORY COMMISSION In the matter of: UPCL not inspecting and testing applicant’s installation and maintaining record of test results obtained in the specified format, in accordance with provisions of UERC (Release of New LT connection, Enhancement and Reduction of Loads) Regulations, 2007 read with Rules 47 & 48 of IE Rules, 1956.
