24 years of experience in Static Grounding operations.
Handling and storage of flammable organic components, such as flour or sugar, and flammable products, such as ethanol, may cause potential dust cloud explosion and flammable hazards. Now, the food and beverage industry is paying more and more attention to the management of electrostatic related risks in potentially flammable and explosive environments.
The "Static Grounding Monitoring System" functions as a part of an Overfill Protection & Earthing System. These provide a visual green light indicating a confirmed grounding condition of road tanker vehicles during the transfer of flammable and combustible materials. A red light indicates the absence of dependable grounding. An interlock circuit inside the control panel will prevent pumps and equipment from starting until a satisfactory ground is established. The interlock circuit will also shut off pumps and equipment if the ground is lost during the pumping operation.
Electrostatic Monitoring Eliminator (SD-A for short) is an electrostatic safety device designed to reduce electrostatic accidents and increase operational safety. It will detect electrostatic hazards in the specific area (such as the area around fuel dispensers in gas stations) and initiativly provides audible voice warning to ensure the safety of operation.
The "Static Grounding Reels with Alarm" have a self-retracting cable drum and an instant locking mechanism to prevent the cable from becoming tangled.
The standard SA-YL model includes a 7m (23ft.) polyurethane jacketed stainless steel cable. The heavy duty grounding clamp (with replaceable stainless steel tips) is connected to the cable for a solid connection to the grounding surface. SA-YL Reels are also available with 15m (49ft.) and 20m (65ft.) cable lengths.
