Earthing metal containers in a hazardous atmosphere 24 January 2023

Without suitable earthing provisions on site, electrostatic charges can accumulate on metal containers, such as drums and hazardous area suitable Ex IBCs during the handling of flammable liquids in Ex/HAZLOC. Once such handling operations begin, these metal containers can quickly generate enough voltage for an electrostatic discharge to occur. Ensure your plant is safely grounded....
