Why the electrostatics must be grounded and how to ground correctly.
In some industrial processes like painting or printing, electrostatic charges might be helpful, but in most of the industrial processes, electrostatics can cause many problems and may lead to devastating accidents, especially in hazardous areas. An uncontrolled discharge can cause here an explosion and may affect lives of people and value of properties.
Safety measures should be taken to prevent the potential dangers from static electricity. A conductive object such as a truck, container, barrel, FIBC should be grounded through a direct earth connection. Alternatively, you can connect the object to another conductive, already grounded object.
