Earth Rod Seal Kits

Description

Earth Rod Seal Kits

The unique design of the Earth Rod Seal Kits prevents ground water from entering the earth pit and reduces pressure on the cover and inner chamber. Waterproofing is achieved by enclosing an upper section of copper-bonded earth rod in a plastic (UPVC) pipe with a total of four seals: on both ends of the earth rod and each end sealing around the rod itself, and between the rod and the chamber. The lower seal is further protected by utilizing a layer of bitumen resin to prevent against O-ring seepage.

The water-sealed Earth Rod Seal Kits, part of the ERITECH® line of products from ERICO®, may be installed in two separate sections (upper and lower) or as a prefabricated, pre-assembled and sealed unit. The prefabricated unit is simple to install because there is no tightening necessary of the seal on site.

Available in single- or double-flange versions, the Earth Rod Seal Kits has been load and pressure tested. Load test results demonstrate a safe working load rating of 6,000 kg and pressure test results show it withstands 80 psi for a continuous period of 96 hours with no leakage.

Features

  • Available in single- or double-flange versions
  • Unique design prevents ground water seepage and reduces pressure to the seal and inspection pit
  • Offers maximum protection with four seals (top and bottom flanges have a pair of rod seals)
  • Coupling easily screws onto the base of the earth pit, saving installation time
  • Load and pressure tested

Applications

Prevent ground water from entering the earth pit and reduce pressure on the cover and inner chamber.
