Flange Fink® Test Station
The Flange Fink® cathodic protection test station is a special version of the widely used 5 to 11 lead BigFink® or the 2 to 3 lead LittleFink® test station. Both models are designed to be easily mounted on a pipe flange or vault wall. The FlangeFink® test stations provide all the convenience, ruggedness and safety of both standard Fink® test stations. The FlangeFink® test stations are made of high impact strength, non-conductive Lexan®. Both may be used to house resistance bonding hardware or as a terminal for test leads to read:
- Underground structure-to-soil potentials.
- Cathodic protection anode currents.
- The resistive integrity of insulation flanges and joints.
- The integrity of insulation between all types of underground metallic structures, such as between a carrier and its casing.
- Stray currents on all types of underground structures.
- Lexan® polycarbonate.
- May be readily mounted on all types of flanges, vault walls and other types of supports.
- Self contained shield protects enclosed area from infestation by insects.
- High-impact strength – molded of Lexan®, one of the world’s toughest plastics which is used to make football helmets, military helmet liners, crash helmets, snow mobile bodies, aircraft windows, etc.
- Has four times the impact strength of aluminum.
- One-half the weight of aluminum.
- Will not rust, corrode, shock, shatter peel, add weight or absorb heat.
- Has dimensional and electrical stability from -60 degrees F. to +250 degrees F.
- Stable under ultraviolet attack.
- Terminals completely accessible from both sides of terminal board.
- Maintenance free – eliminates painting – comes in a variety of colors.
- Non-metallic Lexan® drastically reduces shock hazard.
- Accessories Include: Nickel plated copper bonding straps, calibrated shunts, lightning arrestors, etc.
