Newson Gale offer certified static grounding protection for hazardous applications within the food and beverage industry mitigating the risk of fires and explosions.
The handling and storage of combustible organic ingredients like flour or sugar, and flammable products like ethanol, generate dangerously high levels of static electricity.
According to a report published by Dust Safety Science, food products made up 46% of fires and explosions recorded in 2020. As more attention is paid to potential dust cloud explosion hazards and flammable hazards by government regulators, (ATEX & OSHA) the food and beverage industry is increasingly turning its attention to managing the risks associated with static electricity in potentially flammable and explosive atmospheres.
