LIGHTNING PROTECTION SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS

Protection

Lightning Protection System

Even though lightning discharges have a very short duration (around 180-220 microseconds), within this small amount of time, it is capable of causing a massive damage and destruction to your machinery, infrastructure and tools. Each lightning discharge can contain from several thousand amps to more than 200,000 amps of electric current. This much electrical energy can light up 0.5 million 100-watt light bulbs. Moreover, on average, Singapore faces 171-186 lightning days each year. Think how much damage it could bring to your facility and your expensive setup. Not only will your lose productivity but also, it will cost a lot to repair and reinstall your machinery and setup.

We Offer Protection Against Lightning & Its Effects

We Offer Protection Against Lightning & Its Effects

Surge Protection

We know that massive surge events like a lightning can reach up to thousands of volts. This amount of electric volts can easily cause intermittent or immediate equipment failure, which will lead to a sudden drop in the productivity of your facility. That’s why, for lightning surges, we provide Surge Protective Devices that are designed to protect against the transient surge conditions.

But the lightning and other utility power anomalies is behind one-fifth of the total transient surges. The remaining four-fifth surge activities are caused by the internal machinery and equipment. However, these surges are not as big as lightning in magnitude. But they occur more frequently than lightning surges and possess a threat to your total setup because continuous exposure can damage sensitive electrical machines and their parts. That’s why we also offer Surge Protective Devices for these type of small but frequent surges.

Grounding Components

At T&K Worldwide Commerce Pte Ltd, we don’t only work to stop surges to influence your machines and setup, we also provide a solution to push the surge into the ground so that your setup is completely out of risks.

We offer a wide array of grounding products, suitable for industrial, commercial, and utility uses. Our products ensure reliable and high-quality connection. Apart from quality maintenance, we also ensure that the installing cost is minimum and once the solution is implemented, it doesn’t affect your general workflow. We also provide legislative advice on the installation and maintenance of your lightning protection setup.

Air Terminal

The Air Terminals are developed to provide complete protection to infrastructures against the physical damage from a direct lightning strikes. These air terminals are critically installed on your facility and then connected to the lightning conductor and grounding system. This setup ensures safety from lightning strikes of massive magnitude because this setup safely conducts the lightning current into the grounding system and dissipates it to the ground.

There are many technologies that are now available for the air terminals to allow a lightning protection systems to be designed for a proactive interception and regular shielding at the very early stages. However, T&K has also developed its own lightning protection air terminal, which is known as the direct strike protection system. This Multi-Pointed Air Terminal (MPAT) has a lot of advantages over regular lightning rods.

Comparison Chart of Traditional Rod Vs T&K’s proprietary lightning protection system, MPAT

Traditional Lightning Rod T&K’s Multi-Point Air Terminal or MPAT
Success Mode Termination of the lightning strikes are controlled and all strikes are securely discharged into the ground Due to corona discharge from several points on the MPAT, the lightning termination may occur in some other places.
Failure Mode With traditional lightning rods, the strikes may terminate at your protected facilities, machinery and even your working crew Any and all lightning strikes that are far beyond the system’s ability and engineering perimeter are safely gathered and discharged to the earth.
The durability of Protection Mechanism Lightning rods that use sharp tips to guide the current, usually end up ineffective after one use because the lightning strikes can melt down the tip. Our specially designed MPAT is designed with several points. This allows the system to maintain continuous effective protection from lightning even after a termination. That’s why it will handle multiple terminations without needing to be replaced.
EMP Issue With traditional lightning rods, EMP problem is a common issue when the lightning strike is intercepted on them. MPAT mitigate EMP risks as total lightning protection solution would be implemented
Considerations

Design Considerations

Design Considerations

At T&K Worldwide Commerce Pte Ltd, we developed a good management team so that the suggestions of each individual is considered for the final draft. For each design, we accommodate an engineer to oversee the entire project.

We consider the safety factors, sustainability, usability and feasibility to design each product.

Safety Factors

The very first thing that we consider while designing a custom product for our clients is the safety parameters. Our primary target for any service or product is to ensure their safety.

For our lightning protection devices, we ensure that by using our products, our clients can protect their infrastructures and machinery with no risks or potential threats involved. We also consider ensuring the maintenance of our products is safe and risk-free.

Sustainability

While designing and drafting our devices, we do not compromise with quality for cost or time. That’s why all our products for the lightning protection system are highly durable and eco-friendly. They do not rust or wear off over the course of time. We only use high-quality material and machinery to manufacture our products so that our clients can use them for a long time, without needing to replace or repair them.

Usability

The aim of our lightning protection system is to ensure minimal operational downtime, which is why we consider the usability of our products when designing a custom set for our clients. We ensure that our design can optimize the usefulness of our lightning protection devices by testing and experimenting with them in different conditions for several times.

Feasibility

Apart from quality construction, we also consider the possibilities of our setup to work in every situation while designing our products. For us, convince to use, install and deploy is as important as making the unit durable, eco-friendly and efficient.

Project References

We have successfully installed our lightning protection system on communication towers in several military campsites. Many, at least 7 military campsites that we installed are now free of any lightning or massive surge anomalies-related problems. Prior to our installation, our clients had suffered heavy losses as well as hours of downtime due to the adverse effects of direct or indirect lightning strikes.

The systems that we installed for last 2 years, haven’t broken down or showed any operation malfunction till date. We cannot show the images of those military towers installation because they are identified as sensitive or secure sites by the Defense Ministry. However, we can assure you that the cost of ownership of these equipment have been decreasing dramatically.
