Industries are becoming increasingly more dependent on automata and electronic equipment, which is very sensitive to overvoltages of atmospheric origin caused by electrical storms. A failure in this equipment can interrupt entire lines of work.
Monitoring the industry earthing provides valuable information for anticipating situations of degradation or malfunction. On another side, earthing requires a correct design and execution, based on a geoelectrical study.
In addition, the safety of personnel employed in factories must be assured, taking care that the effects of lightning do not reach the machinery they use. In some industries, such as chemicals and petroleum, significant environmental damage can be caused in the event of an accident.
Lightning protection for infrastructures and power lines reduces economic and personal damage, avoiding unnecessary downtime in production lines, degradation of machinery and data loss or corruption, as well as more serious damages such as fires or electric shock.
The comprehensive protection against the effects of lightning for industries is a profitable decision, in any case.
