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.
