Grounding Systems / Ground Monitoring Device Series 8146/5075 and 8125/5071
The ground monitoring device ensures that tank containers, drums, road tankers, rail cars, IBCs and helicopters are correctly electrostatically grounded during the loading of flammable liquids. The device provides a conductive connection to the ground and monitors in parallel the quality of the electrostatic grounding.
This guarantees that the electrostatic charge remains at a safe level and that no explosion hazard is generated by uncontrolled energy discharge.
The following recommendation requires grounding during loading and recommends interrupting loading in case of incorrect grounding:
