Boom and Electrode Connection Maintenance

Smith-Root Staff March 04, 2020

To insure proper operation of your electrode arrays the inner surfaces of the brass quick-connect fittings must be conductive. During normal operation, dirt and corrosive material build-up on the inner surfaces restricting conductivity.

Using a soft cloth with mild soapy water or a brass cleaner, clean the male fitting connected to the boom and the female fitting connected to the array, wiping away any build up. Last, apply a lubricant such as petroleum jelly.
