Exothermic Weld Joint: Fortifying Supremacy with JAM Welding Substation’s take part in electricity generation, transmission and distribution. It generally transforms voltages from high to low or low to high. The electricity flows through various substations between the power station and the user at different voltage levels. Therefore, these substations need to protect by providing it a good earthing termination. The effectiveness of good earthing depends upon joints and connections. A favorable connection leads to increase the life of earthing while a bad connection shortens its normal life.

Conventional earthing uses mechanical jointing methods like clamping, bolting, brazing etc. The several difficulties that occur with this process are loosening, corrosion, ageing etc. This result into the damage of heavy equipments because if the dissipation of excess current is not done completely into the earth it will burn the equipments. The replacement of these methods is to take a one-time solution i.e. Exothermic Weld Joint.

Exothermic process is helpful to conjugate two or additional conductors permanently by making use of exothermic reaction. The JAM WELD powder is used for performing the reaction as it will get melt when inflames. A superior quality graphite mold is made specifically according to the dimensions of conductors. A metal disk shall require containing the reaction at the upper retort by placing it on the bottom of the mold cavity. Let the action perform for 2-3 minutes after kindling the JAM WELD powder.

Mechanical Jointing versus Exothermic Weld Joint  The clamping, bolting are made by pressing or tightening, hence it will get loosen over the time while exothermic contacts are permanently made by utilizing melting process, hence there is no chance of loosening.  In conventional jointing processes, conductivity is lower while exothermic joint offers higher conductivity than the conductors.  The loose connections are inadequate to withstand in repeated fault currents in mechanical jointing techniques while exothermic contact can tolerate repeated flow of current without degradation.  Its temperature bearing capacity is low up to 250 degree Celsius while exothermic can bear temperature up to 1083 degree Celsius.  Poor Connections reduces the life of entire earthing system while absolute connections enhance the life.
