The pharmaceutical industry is also an industry prone to electrostatic safety accidents.
Grinding of raw materials, dust removal, container filling, and movement of combustible powders and solvents are significant sources of static electricity.
1. Grounding Assemblies

2. Self-testing Grounding Clamp with Visible & Audible Alarms
The accumulation of static charges during the fueling transfer process can lead to costly explosions, fire and personnel injury. The ‘Self-testing Grounding Clamp’ with visible & audible alarms is designed to dissipate static accumulation and verify proper grounding. It is intrinsically safe for use in hazardous locations.
The ATEX approved "Static Grounding Reels" have a selfretracting cable drum and an instant locking mechanism to prevent the cable from becoming tangled.
The standard S-RL model includes a 7m (23ft.) polyurethane jacketed stainless steel cable. An ATEX approved, heavy duty grounding clamp (with replaceable stainless steel tips) is connected to the cable for a solid connection to the grounding surface. S-RL Reels are also available with 15m (49ft.) and 20m (65ft.) cable lengths.
