For over 30 Years, Newson Gale has been in the business of protecting people and assets from static hazards serving industries where processes that generate significant amounts of static electricity have the potential to ignite flammable or explosive atmospheres.
Static electricity continues to be one of the industry’s most significant sources of igniting flammable and explosive gas and dust atmospheres. Statistics from leading organisations such as The Institute of Chemical Engineers and NFPA indicate that at least two serious fires or explosions are caused everyday by uncontrolled static electrical discharges in industrial operations worldwide.
Published data shows that ignitions from static discharges rank as highly as over pressure faults in petrochemical handling and is second only to mechanical sparks for dust explosions.
