Newson Gale have developed a new static grounding system for the use in ATEX Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22!
If static electricity 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 equipment prevents the build-up of electrostatic charges, and thus also prevents the potential danger.
Combining visual indication, interlocking capabilities, and two intrinsically safe monitoring circuits, the Earth-Rite® Dual Grounding System (DGS) system is our latest solution for simultaneous grounding operations in hazardous area industries.
The Earth-Rite DGS grounding system allows engineers, operators and HSE professionals to comply with international standards, guidance and recommended practices, as each ground monitoring channel ensures a resistance of 10 Ohms or less throughout the duration of the process as outlined in IEC TS 60079-32-1, NFPA 77 and API RP 2003.
