The ATEX approved "Static Grounding Reels" have a selfretracting cable drum and an instant locking mechanism to prevent the cable from becoming tangled. The standard S-RL model includes a 7m (23ft.) polyurethane jacketed stainless steel cable. An ATEX approved, heavy duty grounding clamp (with replaceable stainless steel tips) is connected to the cable for a solid connection to the grounding surface. S-RL Reels are also available with 15m (49ft.) and 20m (65ft.) cable lengths.
The accumulation of static charges during the fueling transfer process can lead to costly explosions, fire and personnel injury. The ‘Self-testing Grounding Clamp’ with visible & audible alarms is designed to dissipate static accumulation and verify proper grounding. It is intrinsically safe for use in hazardous locations.
During fuelling, loading and unloading operations, the vehicles should always be grounded. The “Static Grounding Monitoring Systems” will automatically shut off the loading and unloading operation if the ground is broken at any time during the operation.
