Static Earthing

Static Earthing

Static earthing is especially important in processes dealing with volatile products, where a single spark could have disastrous consequences. The ALPTEC range of grounding clamps and cables, as well as the SparkSafe and ShovSafe ranges from ATC, can assist in securing your plant and personnel.

Under certain conditions, a person’s body can be electrostatically charged by friction and natural environmental conditions. The Personal Electrostatic Eliminating Alarm device is designed to prevent the accumulation and accidental discharge of static electricity from a person’s body while providing an audible and visible alarm.

ATC SparkSafe – Static Earthing

Static electricity is an ever-present and significant hazard for operations taking place in flammable, combustible or potentially explosive atmospheres. The uncontrolled build up and discharge of electrostatic must be avoided in these environments in order to prevent ignition to protect people, plant, processes and the environment.

Main advantages of SparkSafe®
· No sparks if dropped or subjected to great impact
· The clamp teeth will penetrate paint, rust, and dirt to get good contact with object
· Safe steel cable that not will break even when bent millions of times
· No sparks if attached to moderately charged objects
· Ergonomically designed for easy use even for small hands
· Wide opening for attaching to larger objects
· Suitable for use in cold temperatures – stays warmer to touch
· Corrosion resistant
· Lightweight

Available in 3m and 5m cable lengths

ShovSafe decontamination shovel. Made of electrically conductive plastic. Resistant to acids, bases and solvents. Does not cause sparks when used.
