Lowering operating costs with active grounding protection

To ground and monitor multiple pieces of equipment, such as loading and mixing stations for tanks or railway cars, a large number of conventional static ground systems would normally be required to provide adequate protection against incendive electrostatic sparks. In addition to these flammable liquid and gas applications, powder processing equipment, such as fluid-bed dryers and micronizers, typically require multiple grounding systems to adequately protect potentially explosive dust atmospheres. The Earth-Rite Multipoint II (photo) allows up to eight individual pieces of equipment to be monitored with a single system. It consists of a compact and well-organized monitoring and control unit with LED display. In addition, optional remote-indicator stations may be specified for the process environment. Since the remote indicator stations are supplied via the intrinsically safe circuits of the monitoring and control unit, no additional external power supply is needed. — Hoerbiger Safety Solutions, Vienna, Austria
