LIGHTNING PROTECTION  – EARLY STREAMER EMISSION AIR TERMINAL LIGHTNING PROTECTION

There is no question about the hazards posed by lightning strikes and their associated effects.  Fires, injury, possible loss of life, damage and destruction of property, and the significant downtime due to equipment damage, all make lightning a serious threat.

BUILDING PERFECTION

However the result of research in recent years has led to a significant breakthrough in the knowledge and understanding of the lightning phenomenon. This research has helped to develop better protection and prevention devices to assure protection from these events.

Until recently people thought that the installation of a lightning conductor provided a building with sufficient protection against lightning.  This traditional method sought to collect and divert the energy of the lightning strike into the ground.  While this may avoid some of the worst effects of a direct strike, it has some serious drawbacks.

OLD VS NEW TECHNOLOGY

None of the traditional systems are 100% effective, and all suffer from the secondary effects related to the close proximity of the electrostatic and electromagnetic fields. These are very dangerous to flammables, explosives, and electronics.

The EARLY STREAMER EMISSION AIR TERMINAL

Has proven to be effective as a system guaranteed to prevent lightning from striking the protected area. In chemical plants, oil and petroleum facilities, data centers, and manufacturing facilities we have demonstrated that damage from lightning is completely preventable.
