Road Tanker / Tank Truck drivers must be educated to attach the grounding clamp and system to the designated earth point on the Road Tanker/Tank Truck as soon as they leave the cab and before they start any other operation or product transfer (do not attach hoses, lower legs, etc).
After the product transfer and all other activities have been completed the driver can remove the earthing clamp and put it back on the earthing system stowage point before driving off.
Occasionally this simple process of removing and stowing the clamp and cable by the driver fails to be completed and the Road Tanker / Tank Truck is driven off taking the grounding clamp, spiral cable/cable reel with it, causing extensive and expensive damage.
This type of incident also prevents any further use of this safety equipment until repaired.
Newson Gale have a new assembly to help mitigate this situation. The BAC Break Away Connector fits in line with the grounding clamp and cable. If the Road Tanker / Tank Truck is driven off prematurely, the grounding clamp and the male half of the Break Away Connector (BAC) assembly separates from the remaining cable thus mitigating further damage to the installation.
