Why Electrical Engineers Should Use Exothermically Welded Connections

Posted by Mike Gassman on Mar 7, 2017 9:40:37 AM
Engineers depend on electrical connectors for a variety of projects. Grounding and bonding provide the foundation for all electrical protection systems. No matter the project, it’s of the utmost importance that the electrical grounding and bonding connections perform consistently over the life of a facility. Increasing resistance over time and connection failure due to transients are not acceptable.  

Electrical engineers can reduce the risk of grounding and bonding system failures with exothermic connections. Exothermic connections, which are produced in a purpose-designed graphite mold, prevent increased electrical resistance, help to reduce corrosion, and eliminate the loosening of connections due to vibration. 

So, what makes exothermically welded connections more effective than traditional methods like mechanical connections?
