Kumwell Academy was established to serve Government and Private networking of Grounding and Lightning Protection System knowledge to create understanding which shall lead to innovation with designers, consultants, contractors, engineering institutions and various key customers and partners for safety to society.
Kumwell has moved forward to invest complete laboratory testing equipment according to 7 parts of IEC 62561:2012 Standard “Lightning Protection Component Series” (IEC 62561-1 Requirement for Connection components, IEC 62561-2 Requirement for Conductors and Earth Electrodes, IEC 62561-3 Requirement for Isolating Spark Gaps (ISG), IEC 62561-4 Requirement for Conductor Fasteners, IEC 62561-5 Requirement for Earth Electrode Inspection Housings and Electrode Seals Concrete Inspection Pit, IEC 62561-6 Requirement for Lightning Strike Counters, IEC 62561-7 Requirement for Earthing Enhancing Compounds). The testing equipment has composed of Environment Test (Humid Sulphurous Atmosphere Treatment and Salt Mist Treatment), Mechanical Test (Tensile and Compressive Machine), Electrical Test (Lightning Impulse High Current Machine and Contact Resistance Measurement Machine), SPD functional test cover all SPD application, AC power, communication, DC system which comply to IEC 61643-11, 21, 31. A list of some of the existing equipment is below: 60 kA Lightning Impulse current generator, 10/350 μμS and 8/20 use wave shape for LPS and SPD (Class I,II) testing, 20 kV/10 kA Combination wave impulse generator for SPD class III testing, 10/700 μS ring wave generator for communication SPD test, SO2 simulation environment chamber corrosion test, Salt spray simulation environment chamber test, Universal mechanical tensile test, Micro ohm contact resist 50Hz 2000 A power source to ensure Kumwell components shall be manufactured and delivered high standard and quality product.
Kumwell have ASEAN partners (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore) and international partners (China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Iran, United Arab Emirate, Qatar, Oman, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Syria, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, South America etc.). We get the international certified as UL Listed (UL 467 Ground Rod, Mould and Powder for Exothermic Welding, C-Clamp / UL 486 Copper Lug), Kema Quality from DEKRA (Lightning Protection Component Series), KERI (IEEE 837 Standard for Qualifying Permanent Connections Used in Substation Grounding), VDE (SPD class I and II VDE 0675-6-11) and Quality Management System Certification (ISO 9001:2015) from BUREAU VERITAS. And we get government awards from Prime Minister’s Export Award 2008 and 2012, ASEAN Outstanding Engineering Achievement Award, ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organization (CAFEO) 2010 and 2013, and Thailand Trusted Mark (TTM) 2012.
Kumwell also has created an awareness of our business and technology through many international exhibitions (Thailand, ASEAN, India, Pakistan, Iran, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia etc.) and international conferences (Asia-Pacific International Conference on Lightning (APL), International Conference on Lightning Protection (ICLP) etc.). With a strong determination as the Leader of Total Solution in Grounding & Lightning Protection System, Kumwell will move forward to protect you from the dangers of lightning strike from all directions.
