New plant efficiently mixes and packages conductive cement
An electrical engineering firm's new plant brings its conductive cement production in-house, eliminating quality-control problems and reducing costs.
If a 6-foot-tall golfer swinging a seven iron can be hit by lightning, imagine the risk that lightning strikes pose to steel communications towers, electrical power plants, and other large structures. SAE Inc., an electrical engineering firm in Barrie, Ontario, provides engineered grounding systems to protect industrial and municipal buildings, electrical utilities, pipelines, military installations, and similar facilities from lightning strikes. The firm also engineers systems for the oil and gas industry, including grounding, alternating current (AC) mitigation, and cathodic protection systems. The systems significantly reduce costly damage from lightning strikes, AC induction, corrosion, and electrical phenomena.
