Static Grounding System

April 18, 2013

For plants that include several potentially isolated conductive parts, the Earth-Rite Multipoint monitoring system provides protection against dangerous static electricity buildup in any and all of the various components. Typical applications include powder handling, filling/discharging equipment, fluid bed dryers, pipelines, conveyers, and ducting, among many others, especially where one or more parts of the assembly must be disconnected periodically. The Multipoint system may be used to provide individual status indications, or it can be linked to a “lock-out” control system, preventing operation of the equipment till proper grounding has been obtained. The intrinsically safe system ensures that all elements are connected together and safely grounded, providing up to eight interconnected channels from a single intrinsically safe supply.
