Earth-Rite® - Newson Gale
Static earth monitoring & interlock systems
If static electricity can build up on process equipment, the energy content of a "static discharge" can be the cause of fire and/or explosions in ATEX environments. Static grounding of objects and parts prevents the build-up of electrostatic charges, and thus also prevents the potential danger.
The Earth-Rite earth control systems continuously monitor the connection between object and earth, and process are interlocked in case of a faulty earthing, so that no further charge build-up can take place.
The Earth-Rite range is developed in compliance with the international “Best Practice” IEC60079-32, NFPA77, API RP 2003 and other world-wide technical standards and codes of practice.
