Features of Fluidyne Lighting Arrestors:
Lightning Protection System or Lightning Conductor Systems
- Very high electrical conductivity
- Tested and suitable for all weather and climates
- Very durable and very low maintenance cost
- Intercept Lightning Flashes
- Protects equipment from surges and transients on incoming power lines.
- Prevents equipment damage and costly operational downtime
FLUIDYNE designs lightning protection systems to protect a commercial or residential structure from damage due to lightning strikes by intercepting such strikes and safely passing their extremely high voltage currents to "ground". Lightning protection systems include a network of ESE (Early Streamer Emission) lightning rods, metal conductors, and ground & electrodes designed to provide a low resistance path to ground for potential strikes.
Following are the components of Lightning Protection System (LPS) :-
Use air terminals in the form of vertical air rods for directing and receiving the lightning strikes for transmission to the earth. Choose the right air terminal based on equipment building or geographical area.
Air Terminal Base
Choose the correct air terminal base. This will ensure that the vertical air rods are both solidly fixed to the fabric of the structure and have a low resistance connection to the conductor network.
Air Terminal Network
The air termination network is the point of connection for a lightning strike. It typically consists of a meshed conductor arrangement covering the roof of the structure.
First choose the material required, i.e. copper or aluminium then choose the type of conductor required, i.e. tape, solid circular or stranded.
Conductor Fixing Saddle
Select the correct system of fixings for each part of the conductor system. Fixings are available for a wide range of modern construction materials.
Earth Terminal Network
The means of dissipating the current to the general mass of earth.
Choose an earth electrode to suit the ground conditions in the locality of the structure. Electrodes are available in the form of readymade electrodes or rods and plates.
