Multiple Static Grounding System
The Earth-Rite® MULTIPOINT II is a unique multiple static grounding system that can monitor the simultaneous grounding of up to eight (8) individual pieces of equipment at risk of discharging electrostatic sparks.
To ground and monitor multiple items of equipment at points like multi drum loading stations and mixing stations, tote loading stations and railcar loading racks, a large number of conventional static grounding systems would be required to provide protection against incendive electrostatic sparks. In addition to flammable liquid and gas operations, powder processing equipment that typically includes interconnected pipes, fluid bed dryers, hoppers and micronizers would require multiple grounding systems. With the Earth-Rite® MULTIPOINT II up to eight individual items of potentially isolated equipment can be ground monitored simultaneously with a single static grounding system.
Earth-Rite® MULTIPOINT II applications include:
- multiple railcar loading points
- multiple drum / tote loading points
- powder conveying equipment
- fluid bed dryers
- silo / container filling and emptying
- hoppers and dust collectors
- powder micronizing, pulverising and grinding equipment
The Earth-Rite MULTIPOINT II is an ATEX / IECEx / cCSAus certified static grounding system that identifies when equipment exceeds ground resistance levels outlined in codes of practice including NFPA 77 and IEC 60079-32-1. The system consists of a hazardous area monitoring unit that contains eight pairs of red and green LED indicators that verify when the equipment at risk of static charge accumulation has a resistance of 10 ohms or less to the plant’s designated true earth grounding point.
Up to 8 monitored connections
Potentially isolated points as part of one complete circuit.
