Controlling Static Electricity on Interconnected Plant Assemblies

16 November 2020

This article from Newson Gale highlights international standards, challenges and considerations when specifying a static grounding system to mitigate against the risks of an electrostatic discharge.

In pharmaceutical operations, equipment like powder conveying systems, micronizers, blenders and sieve stacks all make up multiple component assemblies that can accumulate high levels of electrostatic charge should any of the components be isolated from true earth.

Interconnected plant assemblies, such as powder processing equipment, present more of a challenge compared to standard applications as there are many metal parts that can make up larger assemblies that are electrically isolated from each other.
