Earth-Rite FIBC Static Grounding for Type C FIBC Bags

Applications:

  • monitoring the resistance of Type C FIBC bags ensuring that the conductive elements of the bag are capable of dissipating static charges in compliance with Cenelec CLC/TR: 50404.

Earth-Rite FIBC Technology:

  • LED indicators informing the operator if the FIBC bag to be protected from static discharges is correctly grounded,
  • when the system is not in use, or when it detects the resistance in the static dissipative loop is higher than 1 x 10^8 ohms, a red LED illuminates the indicator panel located in the SDP indicator station,
  • the system can be setup to physically prevent FIBC filling/emptying operations (interlock) if the bag is not grounded,
  • if the resistance of the bag rises above the recommended level of 1 x 10^8 ohms the process can be halted.
