ELIMINATION OF EXPLOSION RISK

 

Nega-Stat® ELIMINATES THE POSSIBILTY OF ELECTROSTATIC INCENDIARY DISCHARGES IN INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

 

Filtration and also the transport of goods (like e.g.fine powders) on conveyor belts can be an area of high static risk. The pressure of filtartion or the rubbing of fine particles while transport can cause a liquid or powder highly charged. The liquid or powder being filtered or transported may not be incendiary and will not explode but the discharge from these materials if they will become statically charged may cause an explosion.

 

The introduction of Nega-Stat® threads into filter fabrics or conveyor belt fabrics in a selected grid - or stripe pattern will provide full antistatic protection.

 

Fine powders are stored and transported in PP bags called FIBC (Big Bags). When such fine powder are filled into a FIBC or emptied from an FIBC they become very highly charged. This charge can be as high as 500.000 Volts.

 

To ensure that the FIBC and the powder do not become charged the FIBC structure contains Nega-Stat® antistatic threads in a grid pattern and provides antistatic protection under grounded and not grounded conditions.
