Floating roof tanks are always at risk from fires caused by lightning strikes. The award winning Retractable Grounding Assembly reduces this risk by creating a low-impedance bond between the roof and shell. The RGA is cost effective, easy to install, and virtually maintenance free. The ATEX approved patented RGA substantially reduces the risk of tank fires by subduing sustained arcs during lightning events and other electrical phenomena. The RGA is able to do this better than other methods, because designers analyzed and found ways to overcome the weaknesses of other traditional devices for grounding floating roof tanks.
