Self-Testing Grounding Clamp With Visual Indication
The Bond-Rite® CLAMP, patented exclusively by Newson Gale, is the only self-testing grounding clamp that provides operators with visual verification that potentially charged equipment is connected to a verified static grounding point.
The Bond-Rite CLAMP contains a bright green LED which pulses continuously when it detects that the resistance between the equipment to be grounded and the site’s verified earth ground (e.g. copper tape) is 10 ohms or less.
Once connected the Bond-Rite CLAMP continuously monitors the resistance of the circuit between the equipment and the verified ground point (e.g. wall-mounted bus bar).
The pulsing green LED provides process operators with a continuous visual reference point that enables them to monitor the ground status of equipment at risk of accumulating static electricity and discharging static sparks.
The Bond-Rite CLAMP is an ideal solution for applications and installations where interlocks with the process are not possible.
- Filling and dispensing to/from metal containers, including drums, waste drums, mixing vessels.
- Grounding equipment used in mixing and blending operations.
Highly visible LED
Housed in grounding clamp ensures operators know when low resistance connection is achieved with potentially charged equipment.
Tungsten carbide tips
Bite through product deposit build up, rust & drum coatings to ensure proper bonding connections are made.
Stainless steel grounding clamps
Designed to withstand use in tough chemical processing and industrial environments.
Provides personnel with the flexibility of removing the clamp from zoned / classified areas for battery replacement.
10 ohms loop resistance
Monitoring compliant with international Recommended Practice*.
*IEC 60079-32, “Explosive atmospheres: electrostatic hazards, guidance”.
*NFPA 77, “Recommended Practice on Static Electricity”.
Mounted stowage pin provides operators with location to return the clamp when the process is complete.
