Poly Chemical Tank Grounding
Poly Chemical Tank Lightning and Static Protection
Poly chemical tanks are insulators that often store a flammable product. Static charge can build within these tanks during the process of filling and dispensing. This accumulated static charge can discharge when a technician is servicing the poly tank if adequate bonding and grounding measures are not taken. Fires and explosions inside and above the tanks can cause loss of tank and product and possibly loss of human life.
Poly Chemical Tanks and its support structure require appropriate static neutralization devices and adequate bonding and grounding to avoid risk of static discharge. We install our Static Lasso inside the poly tank. It is vertically oriented from top to bottom with a bonding plate at the top of the tank. Conductor bonds the Static Lasso to the metallic stand and both are grounded at the base of the poly tank.
