On its website, MATCOR, Inc. includes what it calls the pipeline industry's first engineered AC mitigation grounding system, combining what is described as superior AC grounding performance with greater ease of installation and lower overall cost. The product is intended for use in pipeline AC mitigation applications. Placed parallel to pipelines in high-voltage AC transmission corridors, the MITIGATOR [TM] is said to provide an easily installed, cost-effective drain for induced AC current being picked up along the pipeline. Some advantages listed include a complete integrated grounding system with a copper conductor in a fabric tube machine-packed with corrosion inhibiting backfill designed for grounding systems; 433% more surface area than bare 2/0 copper cable; significantly lower system impedance; and a 19 strand #2 bare copper cable for enhanced flexibility and ease of installation. 800-523-6692, matcosales@,
