Application area

Deep groundbeds Mendeleevets-MG are used to be installed in boreholes in such places where the upper layers of the soil with the capacity more than 5 m have electrical resistivity more than 100 Ohm∙m and in areas with dense building or with limited access for anodic field.

Technical details

The block of the deep groundbed consists of two sections, both of them have two silicon iron electrodes interconnected electrically. So each groundbed block includes four electrodes.

Current distribution is provided through two connecting cables (one cable for each section). Connecting cables don’t have any discontinuities along the length and they are drawn outside to the surface to be attached to the anodic cable line. Connecting cables are set in the factory. The length of each cable is determined by the depth of installation in the borehole.

Transportation of the block is realized in the folded way (see photo above). While installation the sections unfold and take coaxial position (see illustration).

The design provided for connection of blocks into the chain, that allows to raise current loading and to reduce transitional resistance. Maximum quantity of the deep groundbed blocks which can be installed into one borehole is 4 pieces.

Gas that is formed while working of deep groundbed is drawn outside to the surface through the gas outlet tube. The gas outlet tube has perforation along all the height of the chain and is delivered for the the concrete order on the basis of one tube for one chain of groundbeds installed in the borehole. The length of the gas outlet tube is equal to the depth of the borehole.

The hollow space around the anode should be filled with a coke-mineral activator (KMA) produced by Chemservice in order to reduce spreading resistance of anodic current and to slow down anodic dissolution.
