Ground Enhancing Minerals
The requirement for a low resistance is extremely important with the installation of any earthing system. GEM provides the ability to substantially reduce soil resistivity in soils of the poorest electrical conductivity such as rocky ground or sandy soils. GEM is supplied in two kit sizes – A compound, the mixture of which gives highly conductive low resistivity compound. When GRIP is mixed with water and poured around the earthing system and surrounding soil, the powder and water react to form a gelatinous hygroscopic mass which forms an integral part of an earthing system, this effectively increases the surface area of the earthing system in contact with the surrounding soil. GEM will not wash away under seasonal conditions and therefore provides a permanent presence in working to improve and maintain the integrity of an earthing system. Given that GEM does not wash away the requirement to re-treat the soil is eliminated.
- We offers a selection of earth enhancing compounds for the treatment of soil in and around an earthing system to reduce the soil resistivity and lower ground impedance.
- Earth Enhancing Compound is supplied in 10kg and 25kg kits and is particularly effective in difficult sites such as sandy soils and rocky ground.
- GEM is an economical treatment compound which is supplied in 10kg bags and is bestsuited to sites where excessive soil resistivity is not considered a problem.
