The requirement to obtain an acceptable earth resistance is extremely important with the installation of any earthing system. LPI's Ground Resistance Improvement Powder (GRIP) provides the ability to substantially reduce soil resistivity in soils of the poorest electrical conductivity such as rocky ground or sandy soils. GRIP comprises specifically selected compounds, which possess excellent electrical conductivity. When GRIP is mixed with water and poured onto the earthing system and surrounding soil the powder and water react to form a gelatinous hygroscopic mass which forms an integral part of the earthing system, this effectively increases the surface area of the earthing system in contact with surrounding soil.
GRIP will not wash away under seasonal conditions and therefore provides a permanent presence in working to improve and maintain the integrity of the earthing system. Given that GRIP does not wash away the requirement to re-treat the soil is eliminated. GRIP is supplied in two kit sizes to suit various site application. These include kits of 10 Kg or 40 Kg. A 10 Kg kit comprises two 5 Kg containers; one 5 Kg kit contains a copper compound (Copper Sulphate), whilst the other 5 Kg kit holds a mix of compounds which assist in the mixing process (Hardener). The 40 Kg kit comprises two 20 Kg kits of the same configuration.
