Welded Wire Mesh Grounding

6109 Views 10 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  someonespecial
Working on a job that has welded wire mesh instead of rebar in every concrete pad for switchgear and transformers, etc. The wire only has a diameter of .192" inches. It has to be bonded to the ground ring (4/0) and I'm trying to figure out what type of lug or crimp to use.

Having trouble finding something that matches that wire range. Any suggestion appreciated

I see these split-bolts are rated:
"For use with copper conductor types: Solid, Compact,
Compressed, Concentric"
....I don't see where it says for steel mesh/rebar.

Am I reading it wrong?
I would think if the OP could use a split bolt it would have to be one made out of brass with the spacer or the connection would fail.
