Application of Static Grounding System in rail car loading & unloading operations.
rail car loading and unloading operations, electrostatic build-up products are
transferred from storage tanks to tank cars through a loading system. As the
product travels through the conveyor system to the railcar, the molecules in
the product are charged with static electricity. If the railcar is not directly
grounded, it can build up static charge on its surface, which will cause the
railcar's voltage to rise sharply in a short period of time, causing a static
