Answer / kumarabharathi
Earthing Resistance can be maintained by adding
water,charcoal & salt per month,Not only by adding those
three, Its rusted bolt& Nuts must be renewed by new one for
every three month,this maintenance should be varied depand
upon the climatic conditions, such as in rainy season.Earth
pit must be fenced with cement.

Answer / pks
by pouring the water inside the earth pits...
by checking values of earthing resistance within six months
intervals for each individual pit...

Answer / ashish patil
by pouring water ,charkol and salt is used but it is old
method.use pouring of Bentonite powder by using water.
Also to reduce earth resistance by parralel resistance to
earth mesh.it cen achived upto 2ohm.

Answer / nagarjuna
earthing resistance is maintained below 2 ohms.we should
add salt and water where we r grounding the equipment.

Answer / rajendra soni
monthly check of earthing resistance by good earth
by pouring water ,charkol and salt when ever you find that
earthing is increasing
|Is This Answer Correct ?||9 Yes||5 No|
Better to use stainless steel bolts nuts and washers since
GI ones tend to deteriorate and get corroded after a long
time and it becomes difficult to open the bonding,
connection for taking measurements.
Simple method is pour lot of salt and water around the
earth electrode and surely you will get a very good value
of earth resistance instantly.

Is a contactor (or master relay) required between incoming lines and a VFD? The question goes to safety. If a contactor were used before the VFD and an e-stop engaged then the motor will coast to a stop (i.e. VFD loses power) instead of stopping much faster if the VFD braking fucntion were used. It would make more sense to keep power on the VFD.
