Grounding Solutions Developed for the Nuclear Industry

Originally developed to meet inspectors requirements for the nuclear industry, the
BURNDY HYGROUND irreversible compression grounding system is a safe, costeffective and efficient method that delivers performance excellence and long-term life
expectancy. Employing well-proven design principles and technologies, HYGROUND
connections can be visually inspected, ensuring the correct combination of connector,
installation die and tooling was used during installation.
In addition, we know each of your projects is uniquenot every job requires
the same tools. The Grounding Superstore is home to three versatile grounding
systems: mechanical, compression and exothermic. No matter the option you
choose, youll know youre getting quality products that meet and exceed standard
performance guidelines. BURNDY has a Made in the USA solution for virtually
every grounding application.


An installation tool must deliver the correct amount of force and

the crimp die profile must be the correct design for the specific
connection. With BURNDY crimping tools and gauges, you get a
closed-loop quality system for the installed connections.
