Electrostatic Discharge

News ·

Explosive atmospheres can occur in many industrial areas. Especially, however, where flammable liquids or fine granular combustible bulk materials are used. Proper grounding techniques are essential to prevent electrostatic charging. Regulations and recommendations for the avoidance of dangerous electrostatic potentials and for safe discharge can be found in DIN EN IEC 60079 and the Technical Regulations for Hazardous Substances: TRGS 727. However, grounding in pipelines can be impaired by insulating components such as gaskets and seals or lubricants. Our envelope gaskets for electrostatic discharge are designed for safe grounding of high-energy electrostatic potentials. They minimize the risk of ignition hazards caused by uncontrolled discharges.
