Application Information

  • Chemical ground rods can be ordered as individual components or as a complete kit. Kits include the chemical electrode (pre-filled with electrolytic salts), Bentonite, GEM backfill, and an access well. To order the chemical electrode only, add "B" to the end of the part number.
  • ERICO chemical ground electrodes are most effective when installed as part of a total system that includes high conductivity backfill materials, access/inspection wells, and permanent, reliable CADWELD® connections. They may be installed either vertically or horizontally.
  • ERITECH® chemical ground electrodes provide a low impedance ground in locations of high soil resistivity and dry soil conditions. Used in conjunction with a Bentonite backfill and ERICO’s unique GEM® material, the ERITECH chemical ground electrode system provides a method to improve soil resistivity directly surrounding the electrode, and can replace multiple conventional ground rods. It maintains a low ground resistance, maintenance-free installation that dissipates lightning energy and other dangerous electrical fault currents, even in sandy or rocky soil conditions. The chemical ground electrode is useful for providing an effective earth in poor soil conditions where space for electrodes is limited. Market applications include telecommunications, power generation and distribution, commercial and industrial, manufacturing, transportation (rail and aviation), lightning protection, recreational facilities, and defense.


  • 2-1/8" Outside Diameter, Type K copper pipe, 0.083" wall contains natural electrolytic salts that permeate into the surrounding soil, improving electrode to soil connection
  • Access segment on horizontal chemical ground rods is 32" deep
  • Available in continuous sections up to 10 feet in length; longer rods can be field assembled using 5- or 10-foot extensions
  • Contains natural electrolytic salts, which permeate into the surrounding soil to condition the soil and increase its conductivity
  • Easy connection to ground electrode conductor using the factory provided pigtail (up or down orientation)
  • L-shaped rods are available for horizontal installation applications where it is impractical to auger deep vertical holes
  • Low impedance to effectively dissipate lightning and electrical fault currents
  • Optional factory attached radial strips are available to reduce impedance to high-frequency lightning energy and to control the direction of the dissipation
  • Over 70 configurations available
  • Provides decades of reliable services due to rugged construction, and high quality metals with a 30-year minimum service life
