Flat-In-Pipe Technology (FIP)


The flat-in-pipe concept involves one pipe electrode and a flat electrode. Flat electrode vertically inserted from top to bottom into the pipe. Inserted flat electrode is either Copper coated or Zinc coated or Pure copper. The empty space between the flat electrode and pipe electrode is filled with aCrystalline Conductive Compound which is highly conductive and anti-corrosive. The Crystalline Conductive Compound does not collapse even if outer pipe corrodes after so many years, thus there is no reduction in the earthing surface area even after alonger duration. Over time this Crystalline Conductive Compound washes out and inner flat electrode comes in direct contact with soil. Due to theanti-corrosive copper coating of the inner flat, it takes very long time to corrode, which increases thelife span of the electrode.

Ground Conductive Improving Material (GCIM)



Earthing system performance mainly depends on the surrounding soil structure and condition around the earthing pit. The Same electrode with same GCIM type and quantity behaves differently at various locations on the earth. As we have discussed earlier the factors which affect the performance and conductivity of earthing. Soil structure is one of them. Due to this variation in nature or structure of soil; we get different resistance value at various locations with the same earthing electrode.

GCIM is Ground Conductivity Improving Material, which is mixed with soil and placed around the electrode during the process of earthing installation. The purpose of adding GCIM is to increase the electrical conductivity through the electrode to the earth. Contents of GCIM are highly conductive and non-corrosive compared to conventional salt and charcoal. Apart from this, water is a good conductor of electricity and water retaining the capacity of GCIM is 600% more than conventional charcoal. This high conductivity and water retaining the capacity of GCIM improve theoverall performance of the earthing electrode.

Over the years, ETP has examined, experienced and understood the soil condition and environment. As a result, we have developed the best quality of GCIM according to the need of different soil conditions.

GCIM Hygrolite

Dissipation of fault current depends on the capillary and electro-osmotic action of the soil. GCIM Hygrolite captures moister from the surrounding environment and retains it for a longer duration. GCIM Hygrolite is highly conductive for dry soil conditions, due to its minimal resistance. When water is added the resistance of GCIM hygrolite is 0.5 Ohm-meter. It is non-corrosive and less susceptible to shrinkage. It is a safe and good conductor even if the soil conditions are dry.

GCIM Standard

GCIM Standard has the qualities mainly to enhance the ground conductivity. As we know fault current dissipation requires high conductive soil, GCIM Standard has been developed to enhance the conductivity of the soil around the earthing pit. GCIM contains the highly conductive ingredients, at the same time it is hygroscopic in nature and swells when it comes to the contact of water. It is non-soluble in water and non-corrosive thereby it ensures consistent contact between the electrode surface and soil; which is a crucial part in the performance of an Earthing System.

GCIM Excel

GCIM excel has been designed for the hard soil conditions and the soil environment where the resistivity of soil is very high. GCIM Excel is an electrolyte based Ground Conductivity Improving Material which is powered by neutralizing and diffusing agents. It helps reduce the soil resistivity and normalizes the soil condition even in very dry and harsh environment. GCIM Excel forms a bulk aqueous solution on addition of water and creates conductive capillary roots for the fault current dissipation through the earthing system.

Easy Installation Process


  1. Make an 8 to 10-inch diameter bore up to a suitable depth in the soil to match the electrode length
  2. Remove the lumps, stones and other foreign material from the dugout soil, you can sieve the soil to remove hard and non-conductive foreign material
  3. Mix the GCIM into the cleaned soil and throw a handful of the mix into the pit
  4. Remove the packaging and plastic from the electrode and place it into the pit
  5. Throw some amount of GCIM-soil, into the pit around the electrode and pour a bucket of water
  6. Poke the pit with a long pole around the electrode for a few minutes to enable the trapped air to escape
  7. Continue the earth filling process until the entire electrode stands firmly in the pit
  8. Ensure that the texture of GCIM is pasty, not watery
  9. After finishing the pit work, pour a few bucket of water around the pit
  10. Check the pit after 3 to 4 Days

Soil Measurement Process


It is well known that the resistance of an earth electrode is heavily influenced by the resistivity of the soil.

Soil resistivity measurements are an important parameter when designing earthing installations.

Knowledge of the soil resistivity at the intended site Provides a valuable insight into how the desired earth resistance value can be achieved and maintained over the life of the installation with the minimum cost and effort.

When designing an earthing system to meet safety and reliability criteria, an accurate resistivity model of

The soil is required.

Soil resistivity measurements help to Choose the locations and types of the earth electrodes and earth networks before building them

  • Define the electrical specifications of the earth electrodes and earth networks.
  • Optimize the construction costs for the earth electrodes and earth networks.

Earthing Measurement Process


When an electrode system has been designed and installed, it is usually necessary to measure and confirm the earth resistance between the electrode and “true Earth”.

The aim of the any earthing system that forms part of a surge protection installation is twofold - firstly, to ensure that the transient energy is diverted into ground via the safest and most direct route, and secondly, to ensure that in doing so, the resulting earth potential rise is not such that the risk of damage to equipment or injury to personnel is excessive.

Understanding Earthing & Associated Facts


Earthing:

The main reason for doing earthing in the electrical network is for the safety.Earth or ground wire is mainly to protect the human being from electric shock. If there is contact between live wire directly to metal case/body of the appliance or device, the user shall get a shock because current will flow towards the earth through user body, if that person is in contact with the earth. The green earth wire is attached to metallic body/case of the appliances or device; it allows the current to go directly to the earth without harming to the user. This green earth cable is finally attached to an earthing electrode (as shown in the image). This electrode is buried mostly in the moist conductive soil through a thick conductor wire. This wire should have very low resistance, this electrode buried in the earth for safety purpose is known as Earthing.

Purpose of Earthing:
  1. Earthing is important to save human life from danger of electrical shock or death by blowing a fuse i.e. to provide an alternative path for the fault current to flow so that it will not endanger the user
  2. To protect buildings, machinery & appliances under fault conditions
  3. To ensure that all exposed conductive parts do not reach a dangerous potential
  4. To provide a safe path to dissipate lightning and short circuit currents
  5. There are many sources of electricity. Every transformer can be considered a separate source. If there were not a common reference point for all these voltage sources it would be extremely difficult to calculate their relationships to each other. The earth is the most omnipresent conductive surface, and so it was adopted in the very beginnings of electrical distribution systems as a nearly universal standard for all electric systems.

Factors that can affect performance of Earthing:

Soil Resistivity:
  • It is the resistance of soil to the passage of electric current. It varies from soil to soil. It depends on the physical composition of the soil, moisture, dissolved salts, grain size, distribution, seasonal variation, current magnitude, etc
  • Different soil conditions give different soil resistivity. Most of the soils are very poor conductors of electricity when they are completely dry.
  • Soil plays a significant role in determining the performance of Electrode.
Moisture:
  • Moisture has a great influence on resistivity value of soil. The resistivity of soil can be determined by the quantity of water held by the soil and resistivity of the water itself. Conduction of electricity in soil is through the water.
  • Pure water is a poor conductor of electricity.The resistivity of soil depends on the resistivity of water which in turn depends on the amount and nature of salts dissolved in it.
  • A few salts in water reduces soil resistivity by 80%. common salt is most effective in improving the conductivity of the soil. But it corrodes metal and hence discouraged.
  • Increase or decrease of moisture content determines the increase or decrease of soil resistivity.Thus in dry, whether resistivity will be very high and in monsoon months the resistivity will be low.
  • The location also contributes to resistivity to a great extent. In a sloping landscape, or in a land with made up of soil, or areas which are hilly, rocky or sandy, water runs off and in dry weather conditions, water table goes down very fast.
  • Grain size, its distribution, and closeness of packing are also contributory factors since they control the manner in which the moisture is held in the soil.
