Conductive concrete, a cementitious and carbonaceous material, is supplied by CUBIS Systems and provides an environmentally safe long term solution to many grounding problems.
Conductive concrete grounding electrodes are easily installed by spreading the dry powder in a strip over and around a conductor in a horizontal trench. When the trench is refilled Conductive concrete absorbs moisture from the surrounding soil and hardens to become part of the grounding electrode.
The surface area of the electrode is thus dramatically increased and resistance to ground is substantially reduced.
SAN-EARTH installed in dry powder form, is both convenient and effective. It makes ideal contact with the ground possible over large effective areas and has qualities far superior to more traditional grounding techniques.
Electrolytic Corrosion Resistance
SAN-EARTH significantly extends the life of grounding systems. In normal conditions, an electrolytic reaction occurs when any metal buried in the ground is exposed to a positive electric current, resulting in serious corrosion of the metal.
Covering the metal with SAN-EARTH creates conduction between the metal and SAN-EARTH reducing the electrolytic reaction and preventing the metal from corroding.
Cost Efficient Grounding & Easy to Install
No water is required when grounding with SAN-EARTH. Once installed, it absorbs moisture from the surrounding soil and hardens. Common obstacles such as rocks or stumps will not interfere with grounding and need not be removed.
Because SAN-EARTH is granular and not liquid in nature, trouble free installation is possible even when the site is sloped.
SAN-EARTH provides completely pollution free grounding because it is composed of very safe inert chemical matter. It will neither melt into the soil nor change into an electrolyte.
Reduces opportunity for theft
Traditional grounding systems are prone to theft due to the scrap value of copper. By using SAN-EARTH, the grounding system is safe from threat of theft or sabotage.
Cubis SAN-EARTH is commonly used for the following applications:

Cubis SAN-EARTH is suitable for installation in almost any environment. The first aid in the grounding of electric power transmission was in the lines of mountainous areas where construction is difficult and soil resitivities tend to be high. Cubis SAN-EARTH can be installed straight out of the bag without water and in vertical or horizontal trenches.
