Static Earthing & Fluid Level Monitoring

Static Earthing, Static Grounding, and Bonding Solutions

Ignition hazards of static electricity are well known. Static earthing clamps and systems are used to handle flammable liquids, where a single spark could have disastrous consequences if discharged in a hazardous atmosphere. Static charge buildup can occur when handling and storing flammable liquids. To avoid the buildup of static electricity, the ALPTEC range of grounding clamps and cables, as well as the SparkSafe and ShovSafe ranges from ATC, can assist in securing your plant and personnel when filling or emptying portable metal containers, drums, and vessels and for protecting the plant by earthing road tankers. If you store and handle flammable liquids and there is a potential for ignition of a flammable or combustible atmosphere due to electrostatic discharge, we have the equipment to protect your plant.

We have products that perform the grounding but also can monitor the resistance to earth with battery-operated indicating clamps for hazardous areas or dedicated earthing systems for road tanker earthing and where relays are used to stop the transfer process of flammable liquids.

Under certain conditions, a person’s body can be electrostatically charged by friction and natural environmental conditions. The Personal Electrostatic Eliminating Alarm device is designed to prevent the accumulation and accidental discharge of static electricity from a person’s body while providing an audible and visible alarm.

ATC – Exolutions SparkSafe – Static Earthing Clamps

Static electricity is an ever-present and significant hazard for operations taking place in flammable, combustible, or potentially explosive atmospheres. The uncontrolled build-up and electrostatic discharge must be avoided in these environments in order to prevent ignition to protect people, plants, processes, and the environment.

Main advantages of SparkSafe®
· No sparks if dropped or subjected to great impact
· The clamp teeth will penetrate paint, rust, and dirt to get good contact with the object
· Safe steel cable that not will break even when bent millions of times
· No sparks if attached to moderately charged objects
· Ergonomically designed for easy use even for small hands
· Wide opening for attaching to larger objects
· Suitable for use in cold temperatures – stays warmer to touch
· Corrosion resistant
· Lightweight
