The Most Advance Weapon in the War to Stop Copper Theft - Copperweld Copper-Clad Steel (CCS)
Welcome to the forefront of copper theft prevention. At ARB, we understand the paramount importance of safeguarding personnel and valuable equipment against hazardous voltages and potential gradients. Whether you’re involved in electric utility plants, telecommunications stations, military installations, or general industry, we offer a groundbreaking solution Copperweld Copper-Clad Steel (CCS).
Copperweld Copper-Clad Steel (CCS) has revolutionized earthing applications by providing a reliable system to dissipate surge currents into the earth, reducing the risk of equipment damage and ensuring the safety of personnel. The innovative technology combines the strength of steel with the conductivity of copper, creating a powerful and anti-theft solution that surpasses traditional solid copper conductors.
The value of solid copper has made it an attractive target for thieves, with copper materials being stolen at every stage of operations, from installation to transportation and storage. Pole earthing wires and exposed copper above ground level are particularly vulnerable. The consequences of copper theft are severe, as the removal or damage of copper wires can lead to unforeseen fault currents, endangering both equipment and personnel and causing disruptions for the general public. Replacing stolen copper earthing material is a costly proposition for utility companies.
