Newson Gale’s ATEX certified 2 pole static earthing clamps are approved and certified for use within ATEX zones and North American classified areas. In order to meet and exceed these requirements the earthing clamps must be capable of passing a range of stringent tests.
Testing Standards required for ATEX certification & FM Global approval:
ensures the continuity from the tip throughout the clamp is less than 1 ohm.
ensures the clamp is capable of establishing and maintaining low resistance electrical contact with equipment.
ensures the clamp is capable of maintaining positive contact when attached to vibrating equipment.
ensures no mechanical sparking sources are present in the clamp.
The powerful combination of sharpened tungsten carbide tips supported by a positive spring mechanism ensures coatings, product deposits or corrosion does not prevent the clamp from connecting directly to the equipment to be grounded.
Our Atex certified 2 pole clamps are designed to be easy to grip and open aiding operators engaged in making repetitive daily grounding connections.
Additional value is provided by the corrosion resistant and mechanically robust stainless steel construction which helps reduce long term replacement costs that are typical of lower quality earthing clamps.
