Static electricity is a frequent source of ignition. An electrostatic charge can be generated while handling conductive liquids or powders. This in turn can lead to the electrical charging of conductive objects such as barrels, filling pipes, tanker trucks, FIBCs (Big Bags), etc.
When combustible products are loaded/off-loaded from a tanker truck there is a risk of an explosion occurring due to ignition caused by a static discharge from the truck itself. To prevent this occurring the truck must be connected to earth and fully discharged before loading can proceed.
A resistive system (StuvEx S604) recognises the low conductive resistance of the object and of fixed installations. It is meant for general use with barrels, carts, railway wagons, metal objects.
A conductive system (StuvEx S804) recognises the conductivity of an FIBC (Big Bag) type C, and reacts only to this application
