Static Grounding Clamps & Cables, Key Factors Too Often Overlooked

November 22, 2011
This newly released white paper from Newson Gale, Inc. describes the too-often ignored critical role played by grounding & bonding clamps and cables in a reliable static electricity control system for hazardous locations. Drawing upon static control failure incidents data collected in the United States, the UK and continental Europe, the paper notes that the incidence of static electric system failure is far more common than one might expect, and that the root cause of many of these failures can the traced to the clamps and cables, either as a matter of incorrect selection or of neglected maintenance.
