Simple Solution for Grounding Containers with Coated Surfaces

Published on 2004-06-03. Author : SpecialChem

International Safety Standards dictate that static grounding and bonding clamps are required wherever mobile or portable conductive plant items such as drums, containers and vessels are used in hazardous areas. However, these types of mobile plant often have coated surfaces and this problem is compounded in use due to build up of insulating layers such as paint, resins, product build-up, or other contamination. These conditions can easily impair the effectiveness of the static-grounding clamp and insulate the plant item, but it is virtually impossible to know this just from visual inspection.

To overcome this situation, the Bond-Rite REMOTE EP (mains powered) combines the benefits of a purpose designed grounding clamp with wall mounted monitoring electronics and feedback via visual indication (flashing green LED). The Bond-Rite continuously tests it's own connection and verifies a suitably low resistance static dissipation path (< 10="" ohms).="" up="" to="" four="" monitoring="" units="" can="" be="" driven="" from="" a="" single="" power="" supply,="" providing="" an="" economical="" and="" simple="" to="" install="" solution="" in="" applications="" where="" multiple="" plant="" items="" must="" be="" earthed.="" it="" is="" also="" perfectly="" suited="" for="" applications="" where="" the="" earthing="" clamp/connector="" needs="" to="" be="" attached="" to="" plant/drums/containers="" for="" prolonged="" periods="" of="">

The Bond-Rite REMOTE EP will be on show at SURFEX 2004, 23rd & 24th June at G-Mex, Manchester - STAND R16.
