The Lyncole XIT® Grounding System
XIT Straight Shaft
The first and original patented electrolytic grounding system.
The continuously advancing telecommunications, data center, computer, and electronics industries require the most advanced systems available. Ahead of its time, the UL-listed, self-moisturizing and maintenance-free XIT Grounding System provides low resistance in diverse climates around the world, without harmful effects on the environment. This system features:
- K2-10CS: 10′ Straight Shaft model
- K2-20CS: 20′ Straight Shaft model
For environments that do not allow Straight Shaft installation.
The Lyncole XIT Grounding System is available in an “L”-Shaped model for environments that don’t allow a Straight Shaft installation. The “L”-Shaped model has the same features and benefits of the Straight Shaft model.
- K2L-10CS: 10′ “L”-Shaped model with 10′ horizontal length and 3′ vertical riser
- K2L-20CS: 20′ “L”-Shaped model with 20′ horizontal length and 3′ vertical riser
XIT Deep Well
Fully submerged application.
The d4-11wW Deep Well electrode length is 11 feet. The top end of the electrode is an 8.5-inch long section made of a 2-inch diameter type K copper tube that is soldered to a reducer to join the lower 10-foot section made of a 4-inch diameter type K hard tube.
The K4-11DW is permanently capped on the top and bottom. This deep well electrode is not filled with Calsolyte salts, instead it has holes, allowing the tube to fill with water.
Why Lyncole XIT?
Lyncole XIT® Grounding Materials
Lynconite II Backfill Material
Improves ground system performance.
Lynconite II is used as a backfill to surround the XIT systems during installation. It is based on natural clay formed by volcanic action. Specially processed to be very electrically conductive, Lynconite II enhances the performance of the grounding system. It is mixed with water (14gals./bag) until a slurry is formed (similar to pancake batter) then pumped or poured around the electrode in the hole.
- Highly conductive
- Improves ground system performance
- Protects the copper-based XIT Rod
- Establishes an electrical bond between the XIT Rod and Earth
- Approved by The National Sanitation Foundation
Lyncole XIT Grounding Gravel
Lyncole’s Grounding Gravel™ is an alternative, and ground enhancement material, for use when installing Lyncole’s XIT™ Grounding systems. This pelletized form of Lynconite is particularly beneficial for installations involving standing water and can be beneficial for use at other times. Although used in many different applications, it is extremely beneficial for grounding applications.
Grounding Gravel™ is highly conductive which improves the ground system performance. It’s nearly neutral pH also promotes a long life of grounding electrodes and/or grids by protecting them from surrounding soil which may be very corrosive. This is one of the factors that allow Lyncole’s XIT™ grounding systems to be warranted for 30 years with a life expectancy of 50 years. Each 50 lb. bag provides approximately 1.0 cubic feet of backfill material.
- Easily Installed
- Provides Good Electrical Bond to Earth
- Very Conductive Electrically
- Very Protective of Copper
- Lowers Ground System Resistance
Ground Bars, Cover Boxes, & Other Products
XIT Spaced Ground Bars
As an essential component of our “one stop shop” in grounding, our NEMA Spaced Ground Bars are built just for you. We offer customized hole patterns and sizes, mounting brackets and insulators, all with quick turnaround based on US manufacturing.
Speciality bus bars are also available, with the same level of customization upon request. Bus bars can come in lengths in excess of 10 ft., with exothermically welded tails.
Cover Boxes & More
Protective covers for your XIT System.
These protective cover boxes are made with concrete, polyplastic, or Fiberlyte material and can be used for both indoor and outdoor protection for your XIT System. All cover boxes include a Fiberlyte, concrete, or cast iron vented lid to allow air to flow to the breather holes of the XIT System.
