Newson Gale - Hazardex 2018 Exhibitor Profile - Table Top
02 January 2018
For over 30 years Newson Gale has been leading the way in hazardous area static grounding control, serving industries where processes generating static electricity have the potential to ignite flammable or combustible atmospheres.
In many branches of industry, hazardous (explosive) atmospheres exist due to the presence of flammable liquid vapours, gases, dusts and fibres.
No matter how the explosive atmosphere is classified, it is vital that all potential ignition sources are eliminated, and Static Electricity is perhaps the most insidious of them all.
Static Electricity is generated in industry by virtually all operations and processes involving movement - for example product transfer, mixing and size reduction. Fires and explosions can occur owing to uncontrolled static discharge from plant, people and materials, and these commonly result in civilian injuries and fatalities, as well as significant financial losses in direct property damage and plant downtime.
To help control these risks, Newson Gale offers a wide range of static grounding and bonding equipment which is purpose made to provide optimum safety in explosive atmospheres and other hazardous operating environments.
The Newson Gale® range prevents static charge accumulation by using practical and innovative design, and ensures effective static control on three levels: -
•Earth-Rite® series of static ground indicators and interlock systems
•Bond-Rite® series of self-testing static grounding clamp units
•Cen-Stat™ series of static grounding and bonding clamps, cables, reels and test instruments
Newson Gale also supplies an innovative range of static mobile earthing solutions including a patented truck mounted static earthing system, an easy to use hose electrical continuity tester and additional accessories essential to providing the appropriate layers of static earthing protection in situations where trucks and tankers are operating in remote locations.
Newson Gale has a wealth of experience gained in controlling static electricity in explosive atmospheres. Since January 4, 2016, the company has been part of the HOERBIGER Group.
