Even small weaknesses within a stray current management system can result in catastrophic damage. It is absolutely vital that effective stray current controls are in place to protect surrounding conductive elements from corrosion to prevent costly remedial works, which often includes breaking out embedded track to detect and rectify.

Without effective earthing / grounding systems there is a very real potential for people and assets to be at risk of harm from fault electrical current. The FM Sudafix Group has an unparalleled reputation when it comes to specifying, designing, installing, testing and commissioning railway earthing / grounding systems.

Whether a main contractor on a railway project requires an earthing / grounding system, a lightning protection system, a stray current control system, a surge protection system (SPD), a bonding / coupling system, or a voltage limiting device deployment (VLD), the JMI technical team (part of the FM Sudafix Group) will be able to provide an effective system design, which will capture the interface with other construction disciplines.

Electricity becomes unmanageable when conductive elements within close proximity to one another possess different potential resistances, which can result in sparking or current flashover. Bonding / coupling is therefore an integral aspect of creating equipotential zones within a railway system to avoid this.
