ZANDZ single-use kit "ground rod + wire (with two taps)" type

Item numbers: ZZ-400-002-1425 / ZZ-400-002-1450 / ZZ-400-002-1725 / ZZ-400-002-1750

ZANDZ ready-made single-use kit is designed to connect ground rods and wires (with two taps) using the exothermic welding.

One kit is enough for a single connection.

The kit includes:

  • single-use ceramic crucible - 1 pc;
  • powder charge, two-component (main and starting charges) - 1 pc.
  • steel disc - 1 pc.

The charge (the thermite powder) is a powder mixture consisting of:

  • A metal having a large oxidation heat value, such as aluminum, which is very active when combined with oxygen resulting in the easy recovery of other metals from oxides under certain conditions;
  • A second metal oxide with a small formation heat value (e.g., copper or iron oxide).

When the thermite burns down it forms a molten metal, which fills the parts to be welded and forms a welded connection.

  • single-use ceramic crucible - 1 pc;
  • powder charge, two-component (main and starting charges) - 1 pc.
  • steel disc - 1 pc.
    • A metal having a large oxidation heat value, such as aluminum, which is very active when combined with oxygen resulting in the easy recovery of other metals from oxides under certain conditions;
    • A second metal oxide with a small formation heat value (e.g., copper or iron oxide).
    1. Place the crucible on the ground rod;
    2. Insert the wires to be welded into the side holes of the crucible;
    3. Put the steel disc at the bottom of the crucible;
    4. Pour the main charge (from cellophane packaging) into the crucible;
    5. Pour most of the starting charge (from the plastic flask) into the crucible as a second layer;
    6. Close the crucible lid;
    7. Pour the rest of the starting charge on the lid (in the upper hole part);
    8. Carefully ignite the charge with the special lighter;
    9. After the reaction is FULLY completed, break the ceramic crucible and clean the connection.
