Newson Gale Static Discharge Grounding Reels are used to ground static charges on equipment during the transfer and storage of combustible fuel and other flammable liquids.
VESM19 and VESM21 features
The VESM19 reel is a spring operated retractable 30 mtr. (100 ft.) reel that features a latching mechanism to lock the reel in position when the grounding clamp and cable is payed out to the required length.
The VESM21 reel is a spring operated retractable 30 mtr. (100 ft.) reel that does not include a latching mechanism, enabling the cable to move freely when it is being payed out or retracted. The non-latching mechanism of the VESM21 is especially useful for grounding floating roofs on storage tanks.
The cable is made of stainless steel (SS 304) and is protected by a clear nylon coating.
Depending on the object to be grounded, the reels will be connected to objects requiring grounding protection with ATEX & FM approved X90 or X45 static grounding clamps. Where the VESM21 is permanently connected to objects an eyelet may be specified.
