Premiere of EKX-FIBC at POWTECH

Premiere of EKX-FIBC at POWTECH

Experience the new TIMM Grounding Control Device EKX-FIBC for safe grounding of big bags at POWTECH from April 9-11.

Handling bulk materials often produces explosive dust atmospheres and electrostatic charges. To prevent an explosion, these charges must be dissipated safely. Permanent electronic monitoring of the discharging connection additionally increases the safety level.

For flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBC type C), TIMM will present its new Grounding Control Device EKX-FIBC with its innovative 2-clamp measuring principle and variable system architecture. The main advantages of the new measuring technology are reliable object recognition of the FIBC and security against manipulation enabled by measurement via two clamps.

The fill release will only occur if the connected FIBC is properly recognized and grounded. In the event of a safety risk, the filling process is interrupted immediately and a safe condition is established.

In addition to the EKX-FIBC, we will present intelligent solutions for electrostatic grounding of silo trains, tankers and IBCs at POWTECH.
