Ground Rod
Ground Rod is important for grounding system. Ground Rod has the ability
to bring electricity to the ground for protect your life and property.
Ground Rod shall be meet up to international standard UL 467 or IEC 62561-2.
Process
Kumwell ground rods are made by special process, molecular bonding purity
electrolytic coating of copper 99.9 % deposited over a layer of nickel onto high tensile
and low carbon steel cores to ensure a perfect and even bonding between
the steel and copper. Kumwell ground rods has a copper layer whose minimum
thickness is 254 micron met IEC 62561-2 and UL standard can resistance a severe
corrosion to acidic and high concession of salt environment for long lifetime up to 40 years
Standard size diameters being commonly used are 1/2″, 3/4″, 5/8″ and 1″.
Standard lengths being commonly used are 4′ to 10′.
Thread type ground rods are available for extensible
the length of ground rods by coupling In addition,
Kumwell has another ground rod type such as solid copper
and stainless steel (316L).

Standard Test and Inspection
Kumwell ground rod test and inspection follow by
international standard UL 467 and IEC 62561-2
Thickness Inspection
The copper layer whose minimum thickness is
254 microns at any point.
Adherence of Coating Test
The separation can’t be appearing when ground rod
was coating from the steel core.
Bending Strength Test
There shall be not crack of the coating. The application of force shall be
such that the rod is permanently bent through a 90 angle.
Environment Test
Kumwell ground rod shall be subjected to an environment test followed by
a humid sulphurous atmosphere test and salt mist treatment.
After test, ground rod must be in good visual appearance and have no rough edges
or burrs throughout their length.
Tensile Strength Tests
Tensile strength value is require not less than 450 N/mm2
