Rustrol® Gas GapTM Lightning Protector

Lightning being one of the most unpredictable and destructive forces in nature strikes the earth more than 90 million times a year. Electrically isolated structures, (i.e., pipelines) are potentially dangerous because they are prone to an electrical charge, resulting in equipment damage and creating a safety hazard to employees and the general public alike.

Millions of dollars are lost each year because of lightning damage. Protect your valued structures from lightning exposure with the ceramic sealed Rustrol® Gas GapTM Lightning Protector.

Typical installation for the Gas GapTM is across an isolating flange assembly or monolithic isolating joint; no special mounting box is required, unless installation is within NEC Hazardous (Classified) Locations (i.e., Class I, Div. 1; Class II, Div. 1, 2).
