Static Earthing Verification

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 process equipment and other objects prevents the build-up of electrostatic charges, and thus also prevents the potential danger.

 

Newson Gale ground control systems continuously monitor if static grounding loops have low enough resistance to eliminate static electricity, report this to the user, and possibly stop processes in case of a faulty earthing, so that no further build-up of static charge can take place.

ATHEX offers a comprehensive package of ground control systems for electrostatic grounding.


Earth-Rite® | Visual status indication & verification + interlock

Ground control systems are able to detect faulty connections between object an earth. In this situation a safe static discharge can't be guaranteed, and the process must be stopped using an Earth-Rite grounding system to avoid further building up of static charge on the object.


Bond-Rite® | Visual status indication & verification

If it's undesirable, or there is no possibility to interrupt processes, the Bond-Rite grounding devices offer an ideal solution. These earthing control systems check whether a safe disposal of static electricity can be guaranteed by detecting faulty connections between object and verified earth. If this is not the case, the user will be alerted.
