Electro-Static Precipitator Grounding Tool Set
Electrostatic Precipitator Grounding Tool Set

Electro-Static Precipitator Grounding Tool Set - Simple Safety Procedures
By design, this tool set provides a reliable means of drain­ing off static charges that remain on collector plates after electrostatic-precipitator pollution-control equipment is de­energized for servicing.
With the electrical system of the precipitator de-energized, first secure the tool's grounding clamp to a known ground. Then use the insulated handle to bring the Copper hook in contact with the precipitator collector plates. The Contact hook hangs from the collector plates (with the grounding clamp still attached to ground) while service is performed on the precipitator.
When maintenance is completed, use the insulated handle to remove the contact hook from the collector plates. Then remove the ground clamp before re-energizing the precipitator.
Pre-assembled for Ready Use:
Epoxiglas® handle (42" x 1-1/4") meets OSHA electrical requirements, gives operator sufficient added reach needed to make contacts. Contact hook of 98%-conductive Copper is double­bolted to handle. T-handle Aluminum grounding clamp with serrated flat-face jaw assures proper bonding. Jaws open to 1 Yz" for attachment to grounded structural angles, flats or rods. Extra-flexible (1638 strands) Copper grounding cable, 7 ft., with clear jacket fitted with Copper terminal at each end gives high current-carrying capability.

Grounding Ferrules
Grounding Ferrules

Selection criteria
Shrouded ferrules overlap onto the grounding cable jacket for stress relief to the terminal. Two crimps secure the ferrule against the bare strands and one crimp applies on the jacket.
Unshrouded ferrules are available with shrink tubing that overlaps the bare cable conductor and jacket for stress relief.
Available either factory-installed in pairs on any cable length specified or as separate individual units, the ferrules install simply with a hydraulic crimping tool. Complete illustrated installation instructions come with the ferrules and include a table for the crimping die sizes to use.

Copper Grounding Cable
Copper Grounding Cable

Copper Grounding Cable is available in black, yellow and clear, is extra-flexible for handling ease yet strong and tough for long wear. Jacketing is smooth, abrasion, weather and oil resistant in accordance with applicable ASTM Specifications, marked with AWG size approximately every 4 feet.
Yellow and black jackets are T-prene rubber compound with -20°F recommended low temperature. Clear jackets (which allow visual inspection of strand conditions) are ultraviolet-inhibited Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC). Recommended low temperature for PVC-jacketed cable is 0ºF.
Extra-flexible cables, because of their extra-fine strands, re­quire termination ferrules when used with ground clamps.

Either aluminum or copper ferrules may be used with copper cable.

Temporary Ground Rod
Temporary Ground Rod

The Chance Screw Ground Rod provides a temporary ground where a system ground is not available. When installed, the 6' spiraled ground rod develops less resistance than straight ground rods. However, actual effectiveness depends upon soil properties. The reusable Ground Rod is copper clad. The helix (spiral) and handle are bronze. For truck-grounding applications, see kit below.

Truck Safety Barricade
Truck Safety Barricade

This kit keeps workers and onlookers away from the truck when the truck is being used in proximity to energized conductors. Six rods, made of bright orange Epoxirod®, provide a 6-foot air space around the entire perimeter of the truck. The safety barricade also includes six pieces of 3-inch long steel tubing (to be welded to truck by the customer) to hold the barricade rods, 150 feet of yellow rope and a canvas storage bag. The entire kit requires less storage than traffic cones and can be quickly installed and removed at each job site.

Grounding Simulator Set
Grounding Simulator Kit

To demonstrate the principles for temporary grounding practices, this portable instructional aid provides a work­ing model of a three-phase system circuit. Powered by a step-down transformer, the kit simply plugs into a 110-volt 60-cycle household source. A special light/bell unit simulates a line worker involved in maintenance on a de-energized line. Insulated wires with an alligator clip at each end serve as grounding cable and clamp sets (10 included). A miniature grounding cluster bar is included for pole mounting.

Durable and accurate
Built to last, the poles are aluminum pipe material. Crossarms are wood. Electrically correct, the aluminum poles effect the conductivity which should be assumed for actual poles. Leads from the poles and the neutral connect to the ground side on the source (transformer).

Operation
To quickly test any proposed configuration, just depress the transformer foot switch to energize a fault on the system. If the light glows and the bell sounds on the "worker," this indicates the grounding system in place fails to provide protection. Or, if no such signals occur, the scheme of grounding connections does create a protective zone of equalized potential at the worksite.
To answer a multitude of "what-if' questions from the various personnel concerned with grounding practices, the kit transformer rapidly recycles while you rig the grounding leads for the next test. A "ready" light comes on as soon as the transformer is reset.

Equi-Mat Personal Protective Ground Grid
Equi-Mat Personal Protective Ground Grid

EQUI-MAT® Personal Protective Ground Grid
Complies with OSHA 1910.269 for equipotential requirements near vehicles, under­ground gear, overhead switches and in substations
• U.S. Patent No. 6,477,027
Portable, lightweight, high performance
The EQUI-MAT® Personal Protective Ground Grid provides an easy way to help establish an equipotential zone for a lineworker to stand on during various energized and de­energized work practices. Properly applied, it accomplishes compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administra­tion (OSHA) 1910.269:
"Equipotential Zone. Temporary protective grounds SHALL be placed at such locations and arranged in such a manner as to prevent each employee from being exposed to hazardous differences in electrical potential."
The EQUI-MAT® Personal Protective Ground Grid easily can be taken anywhere needed, is simple to use, maintain and store. It consists of a high-ampacity tinned-copper-braid cable sewn in a grid pattern onto a vinyl/polyester fabric. Cable terminals permit connecting the mat's grid in series with an electrical ground and the subject system component or vehicle. Simply rinsing with water comprises all the care the mat requires. The mat may be folded and stored in a tool bag to help keep it clean and protected. Complete instructions are included with each unit.
Easy to use, versatile to many applications
• Pad mounted Transformers and Switches
Complies with OSHA 1910.269 for protecting workers operating and maintaining padmounted transformers and switchgear. The proper use of EQUI-MAT Personal Protective Ground Grid in these applications creates an equipotential zone just as a cluster bar (chain binder) does in overhead grounding practices.
• Mechanical Equipment (Vehicles, etc.) Grounding
It also helps provide compliance with OSHA 1910.269 for protecting workers around mechanical equipment which could become energized, such as utility vehicles and portable generators. For proper application, EQUI- MAT Personal Protective Ground Grids are attached to the vehicle (for example) at locations where workers could contact the vehicle. This extends the area of equipotential around the vehicle.
• Overhead Distribution and Transmission Switches EQUI-MAT Personal Protective Ground Grid can help eliminate step and touch potential. Connect it to the handle of an overhead switch and stand on it when opening or closing the switch.
• Line Apparatus Work: Similar uses for installing, maintaining or operating regulators, reclosers, capacitor banks.
• Suspect Substation Grids: If station ground mat integrity is questionable, apply the EQUI-MAT Personal Protective Ground Grid.
Simple to join multiples for larger areas Cascading (or joining together) two or more mats is easy with the connecting tab and hardware furnished with each mat. So connected in series, the conductive grids become one. Whenever a larger area is needed, simply place lug connector tabs of two adjacent mats on the supplied bolt or threaded shank of a ball stud and secure with supplied washer and nut.
