The most common Furse earth rods sold are Copperbonded steel core, due to cost, strength and corrosion resistance. Solid copper and Stainless Steel rods are also available, providing excellent corrosion resistance but are lower strength and more expensive.

ABB Furse earth electrode materials

Copper Bond earth rods are made by molecularly bonding 99.9% pure electrolytic copper onto a low carbon steel core. Furse rods are not of the sheathed type. They are highly resistant to corrosion, and because the steel used has a very high tensile strength, they can be driven by power hammers to great depths. The counter-bored couplings are made from high copper content alloy; commercial brass is not used, ensuring excellent corrosion resistance and high strength.

Solid Copper earth rods offer higher resistance to corrosion. They are ideally used in applications where soil conditions are very aggressive, such as soils with high salt content.

Stainless Steel rods are used to overcome many of the problems caused by galvanic corrosion which can take place between dissimilar metals buried nearby. Furse stainless steel earth rods are highly resistant to corrosion.

Diameter of rod

The diameter of the rod does not lower earth resistance dramatically. If you double the rod diameter, the resistance value will only decrease by 9.5% (which means increasing the weight and the cost of the rod by approximately 400%). Use the most economical rod that soil conditions will allow, make savings by not buying over-dimensioned rods.
