Steel lightning conductor MS-37.0 Purpose of steel lightning conductors of type MS. MC-37.0 lightning rods were developed in 1991 by the North-Western branch of the Energosetproekt Institute. Working drawings of the project are contained in the energy series 3.407.9-172. The purpose of the MS-37.0 lightning rods is lightning protection of large areas of oil and gas, energy industries, social and sports complexes and transport hubs. In contrast to the configuration of steel searchlight masts of the same height (37.04 m) PMS-29.3 and PMS-29.3 A, the MS-37.0 lightning rod kit does not include the TS-39 service platform (TS-39A at PMS- 29.3 A) with a guard TS-43 (TS-43A at PMS-29.3 A) and a ladder (TS-40, TS-41, TS-42). Designation of steel lightning rod MS-37.0. MS - steel lightning conductor; 37.0 - distance in meters from the ground zero point to the upper point of the TS-5 lightning conductor. Complete set of lightning conductor MS-37.0. MC type lightning rods consist of a metal stand, which is a spatial structure of trusses, which consists of several parts for the convenience of transportation to the object. A TS-5 five-meter lightning conductor is installed in the upper part of the MC, the lower part of which is secured with a TS-4 cable rack. Steel structures MS-37.0 are supplied complete with galvanized hardware: bolts, washers, grovers and nuts with a total weight of 13.39 kg. The components of the MC-37.0 lightning rods are similar to similar structures for intermediate metal supports of power lines, which allows to unify components due to their versatility. The total height of the MS-37.0 lightning conductor is 37.04 meters. Anticorrosive coating of metal structures of lightning rods MS-37.0. MC type lightning rods have several types of anticorrosion coating to choose from: Primer.
