The ability to monitor operations and stop them if the generation and accumulation of electrostatic charge on a bag exceed recommended levels essentially eliminates the risk that an incendive spark will be discharged, which means no explosion and no fire.
Operators can compensate for normal wear-and-tear usage on Type C bags by ensuring that the bags maintain capacity for dissipating charges and that the ground connection between a bag and the designated point of plant earth grounding is functioning properly.
The Benefits of the Sam Carbis Solutions Group, LLC Type C FIBC Bag Grounding System
Allows operators in hazardous areas to display Best Practice compliance with the standards established by Cenelec CLC/TR: 50404.
Sam Carbis Solutions Group, LLC provides a resistance monitoring feature that, when used in combination with machine interlocking output contacts (x2), always ensures that bags are correctly clamped and grounded before any filling or emptying of materials can begin.
The Sam Carbis Solutions Group, LLC grounding system continuously monitors the bag's resistance during the entire fill/empty process to ensure that a safe path for the dissipation of electrostatic charges exists between the bag and the plant earth ground.
LED indicators pulse green to inform operators when a good ground connection is made, and red if a faulty connection occurs.
The Sam Carbis Solutions Group, LLC's FIBC enclosure and stainless steel clamp are appropriate for use in Zone 21, Zone 2, Class I, II, III, Div. 2.
Options are available for Zone 1 and Class I, II, III, Div. 1
