Electrostatic fire (during chemical production process) explosion hazard and protection
Industrial static electricity is static electricity generated and accumulated on materials, devices, human bodies, equipment and structures during industrial production, storage and transportation.
 It has a great impact on production safety and product quality. In the chemical production process, friction, flow, loading and unloading, spraying, stirring, scouring and other operating procedures that are prone to electrostatic accumulation are common. At the same time, chemical production has the characteristics of flammable and explosive production. Compared with open flames, electrostatic sparks are more significant. Therefore, understanding the principle of industrial static electricity generation and analyzing its fire hazard characteristics is of great significance for exploring and mastering the prevention of static electricity fire and explosion.
