Earth-Rite - Model PLUS - Static Grounding Protection for Process Plant & Equipment
Precision and reliability is what the Earth-Rite PLUS provides to HAZMAT professionals and engineers who are tasked with protecting personnel and plant assets from the ignition hazards of static electricity during tank car, LACT & skid unit and tote loading/unloading operations. Conductive metal objects like tank cars, LACT units, skids, totes and IBCs that come into contact with electrostatically charged liquids can accumulate hazardous levels of electrostatic charge that could discharge static sparks with energies far in excess of the minimum ignition energies of a vast range of combustible gases and vapors. The ignition of combustible atmospheres by static electricity can be prevented by ensuring that such objects are grounded.
Interlock stops operation
if the equipment connection or ground connection becomes faulty immediately halting the source of the static charge generation.
Attention grabbing LED indicators
Simple and attention grabbing GO/NO-GO traffic light style LED Indicators show system status.
Complies with International Safety Standards
Complies with International Safety Standards by confirming safe, low resistance static dissipation path (10 Ohms or less) from equipment to designated grounding point.
Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Earthing clamp
suits all common tankers, drums, conductive plant items.
