About this exhibitor
For over 30 years, Newson Gale has been leading the way in hazardous area static grounding control, serving industries where processes generating static electricity have the potential to ignite flammable or combustible atmospheres. In many branches of industry, hazardous (explosive) atmospheres exist due to the presence of flammable liquid vapors, gases, dusts and fibers. No matter how the explosive atmosphere is classified, it is vital that all potential ignition sources are eliminated, and static electricity is perhaps the most insidious of them all. Static electricity is generated in industry by virtually all operations and processes involving movement – for example product transfer, mixing and size reduction. Fires and explosions can occur as a result of uncontrolled static discharge from plant, people and materials, and these commonly result in civilian injuries and fatalities, as well as significant financial losses in direct property damage and plant downtime. To help control these risks, Newson Gale offers a wide range of static grounding and bonding equipment for use in explosive atmospheres and other hazardous operating environments. Static ground indicating systems are available for applications using drums, IBC’s, road tankers, railcars, and process plant and equipment. Also available are static grounding and bonding clamps, cables, and reels; as well as test instruments, publications, and training materials.
