exothermic welding

Our patented (UltraShot®) technology utilizes a copper container which becomes part of the connection. The electronic ignition system fires instantly and uses an 18 volt Milwaukee® lithium ion battery. Approximately 1,100 - 1,500 connections can be made before the battery needs a recharge. The 6’ ignition cord allows the user to maintain a safe distance from the connection. Molds used in the UltraShot process have been proven to last several times longer than ones being used in the conventional process.

 

GRounding busbars

Today’s sensitive electronic environments require specialized bonding and grounding techniques. Understanding high frequency, equipotential ground planes and signal reference subsystems are imperative when protecting sophisticated electronic systems; grounding busbars play an important role.

 

lightning protection & grounding conductors

Using custom high speed drawing, plating and cabling equipment, conductors are manufactured at the Harger facility in North Carolina. A wide variety of lightning conductors and bare or tinned copper grounding conductors sized #10 through 250 MCM are produced daily.

Lightning protection equipment

Innovative, installer-friendly components make Harger the leading provider of lightning protection equipment. These products are also backed by the foremost lightning protection design department in the world today.
