Static Earthing for Hazardous Areas

Application Handbook By Newson Gale

Newson Gale’s new Static Grounding & Bonding Applications Handbook identifies the processes at risk of discharging incendive electrostatic sparks into hazardous areas and explosive atmospheres. The Handbook highlights some of the processes that can be susceptible to static charge accumulation

Newson Gale manufacture the most extensive range of static earthing and bonding clamps with ATEX certification for use in Zone 1/21 & Zone 2/22 potentially explosive gas and dust hazardous areas.

Thorne & Derrick together with Newson Gale will identify the dangers of static electricity and discuss how to correctly specify and install the most appropriate Static Earthing & Bonding Solutions to mitigate the hazard.
