From Spark to Flame
Mitigating the Risk of Fires from Electrostatic Discharge

Electrostatic charging will occur when solids or liquids are in contact and move relative to other materials, or by induction.

This occurs in many industrial processes i.e., pneumatic conveying, pumping, dispensing operations, centrifuging, and mixing.

All operations are susceptible to charge generation, but if charges are allowed to accumulate and discharge in the presence of a flammable atmosphere, a fire and explosion may result.

Even electrostatic sparks that are far too small to be seen or felt can ignite industrial substances in the form of dust clouds, gases, or vapours.
