Importance of Galvanizing of Earthing Strips

Safety from electric short circuit or electric pulse from natural calamity like thunderstorm is one of the most basic requirements that every household and businesses across the world tend to lookout for. In order to create this safety usage and application of earthing strips is the most common approach that is seen across all household, business place and industries. This not only creates a safe environment for human beings from electricity in all these places, but also ensures thorough protection for all types of electric gadgets and instruments installed in these places. It is because of this reason taking care of earthing strips is of immense importance to maintain safe environment across all places where electricity requirement is concern.

To ensure creation of a safe electricity hazard free environment and protect the earthing strips we at Galvanizers bring you Galvanizing for earthing strip. Let’s walk you through what is galvanizing and how it is performed on earthing strip and how the same protects the earthing strips.

What is Galvanizing Process?

Galvanizing process refers to an approach that highlights application of zinc coating to the surface of a metal. The usual metal taken into consideration for the process of galvanization are Iron (Fe) and Zinc (Zn). The process of galvanization is principally utilized as a defensive mechanism to prevent corrosion and, likewise, increment the workable existence of the secured metal segment. When appropriately applied to a steel surface, zinc coatings offer two main types of protection: galvanic protection and barrier protection, which in turn increases the longevity of the metal by protecting it against possible corrosion.   

How Galvanization of Earthing Strips Performed?

There are two different approaches that are used to galvanize earthing strips they are hot dip galvanizing and cold galvanization.

The hot dip galvanization reflects submerging the earthing strips into a bath of molten zinc. The bath of molten zinc showcases temperatures around 840°F (449°C). Once removed from the bath, the zinc coating on the earthing strips exterior reacts with oxygen in the atmosphere to form (ZnO) Zinc oxide. This Zinc oxide further reacts with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to form a more compact protective layer known as (ZnCO3) Zinc carbonate, which in turn prevents the earthing strips from corrosion.

On the other cold galvanization reflects application of a zinc-rich paint to the surface of the earthing strips to protect it from corrosion.

These approaches are usually used to galvanize earthing strips to prevent it from corrosion, depending on whether the earthing strips are installed or yet to be installed the specific approaches are used for galvanization for yet to be installed earthing strips hot dip galvanization process is used and for installed earthing strips cold galvanization process is usually applied unless the earthing strips are easily detachable from the jointed location.

Why Galvanization of Earthing Strips is Important?

Earthing strips are applied in open atmosphere to ensure that the process of earthing does not impacts the site for which they are installed. It is because of this reason earthing strips are exposed to extreme heat, and cold temperatures, dust and other natural calamities like rain fall and wind which over a period of time corrodes away the strips. This can result in catastrophic accident due to inability of the strips to provide proper earthing to the site from high voltage electric pulses. In order to avoid such accidents from happening and safe guard the site from high voltage electric pulses, galvanizing of earthing strips is of prime importance. It is because galvanization of earthing strips not only protects strips from getting corroded away by natural elements, but also prevents accidents that may happen because of the inability of earthing strips to provide earthing due to corrosion.

Advantages of Galvanizing Earthing Strips

There are many different advantages that galvanization earthing strips can provide, they are as follow:

  • Prevention of the earthing strips from corrosion through exposure to natural elements
  • Prevention of earthing strips from decay from exposure to high energy transmission
  • Safeguard against huge financial losses because of because accidents that may happen because of corroded earthing strips
  • Lower the annual maintenance cost of earthing strips to zero
  • Galvanization of earthing strip is a onetime investment that can create protection for decades

 These advantages clearly reflects how galvanization of earthing strips can not only prevent accidents but also protect the earthing strips from corrosion and stop recurring investment behind the strips.
