Safe Spark Gap/Explosion Proof Spark Gap
A spark gap consists of an arrangement of two conducting electrodes separated by a gap filled with a gas, designed to allow an electric spark to pass between the conductors. Normally, the two circuits on either side of the spark gap are isolated. When the potential difference between the conductors exceeds the breakdown voltage of the gas within the gap, a spark forms, ionizing the gas and drastically reducing its electrical resistance.
The spark gap is available for bridging insulating flanges in cathodically protected pipe sections in hazardous and safe areas in case of surge and lightning currents. Spark gaps are manufactured in two types of conventional and explosion proof with different current ranges.
