Why you must add industrial salt and charcoal during earthing
Hi guys. I’m going to be giving a brief explanation of why it is needed to add industrial salt and charcoal during earthing.
Firstly, let’s discuss briefly on earthing.
What is earthing
Simply put, it is the connection of all appliances and pieces of equipment in a building to the general mass of the earth.
Its job is to carry excess current or surge due to short circuit current to the general mass of the earth.
Earthing is carried out with earthing rod or/and earthing mat. These rods and mats are conductors which pulls current through them.
Why add charcoal and salt
They help to reduce the earth resistance in order to allow for the passage of very high current in the time of surge.
Charcoal is used to retain the moisture for a long duration because it is an adsorbent and salt is added to increase the conductivity both these products help to pass the leakage current through earth wire as early as possible to remove the chances of shock.
How salt and charcoal work to improve earthing resistance
Whether it’s a surge due to overcurrent or lightning, it’s paramount to pour industrial salt and charcoal
