While a lightning strike on its own is bad enough, when that strike ignites a fire, it opens doors to a host of issues. As these disasters aren't planned and they are unexpected, a prudent business creates a disaster recovery plan which is frequently tested and regularly maintained.
A still better approach to averting such disasters altogether is by installing a lightning protection system.
Our lightning protection products can safeguard various industries including but not limited to refineries, offshore platforms, and rigs, pipelines, terminals and tank farms.
Let us take a closer look at our patented products according to their usage:
Dissipation Array System – Based on the charge transfer technology, this patented product prevents downtime, loss of assets while increasing the level of lightning safety.
Spline Ball Ionizer – A supplement to our patented Dissipation Array installation, our patented SBI is the first line of defense for structures that require lightweight protection with a low wind profile.
Spline Ball Terminal – a superb alternative to standard air terminals; it is engineered to reduce the risk of direct strikes while performing as a highly efficient air terminal.
Streamer Delaying Air Terminal – another alternative to standard air terminals; it is designed to delay upward streamer generation and reduce the risk of lightning damage.
STORAGE TANK PROTECTION
Retractable Grounding Assembly – floating roof tanks are most susceptible to fire from lightning strikes. Our award-winning RGA creates a low impedance bond between the roof and shell giving you a cost-effective, easy to install and virtually maintenance free system.
In-tank Potential Equalizer – As the name suggests, our IPE combats the problem of internal electrical discharges within non-metal and lined tanks.
GROUNDING / EARTHING
Smart Ground Testing Service – It’s an advanced ground audit system producing highly accurate results even on the energized ground. Our smart ground offers practical recommendations to improve the earthling system as well.
ChemRod – it requires less real estate and fewer electrodes to meet specified resistance. Each Chem Rod creates an optimal electrical connection to earth with a large conductive surface.
LECWELD – this is an easy and efficient field welding system, wherein the process forms a solid copper molecule bond that does not loosen or corrode throughout the life of the host structure.
Grounding Augmentation fill – GAF is a special formula to create a low resistance earth interface, making it easier and less expensive to prevent a lightning strike.
The primary purpose of our products is to reduce the accumulation of electrical charges thereby prevent the electrical current flow into the building which could cause considerable damage.
Lightning Eliminators & Consultant Inc. has the experience and expertise to manufacture, engineer, install, and maintain systems that integrate lightning protection, grounding, and power quality products into existing infrastructure.
