Electrostatic Grounding

GROUNDING CONTROL DEVICE EKX-FIBC

DO YOU FILL OR EMPTY BIG BAGS? Then you should remember that many dusts in conjunction with air
have a
high risk of explosion. Flours, sugars or aluminum dusts are well known as an explosion hazard.
But even the dust of products such as
fertilizers, rubber, tobacco, spices and many other substances
can cause explosions. Therefore, when processing such products, conductive big bags must be used.
Grounding is required for these types of big bags to prevent ignition due to
electrostatic charges.

 

FUNCTIONAL PRINCIPLE
The Grounding Control Device EKX-FIBC provides and monitors a safe grounding connection
between the big bag and the designated ground point via two active clamps. Additionally, the
digital measuring technology prevents misuse or bypassing of the device by means of automatic
object recognition
. A filling release via the electronic control outputs and the highly visible LED
indicator is only given if the connected Big Bag is properly recognized and safely grounded via both
clamps. In case of an interruption of the ground connection, the control outputs lock and the
optical
LED indicator
changes from green to red.

 

HANDLING
The EKX-FIBC can be used in gas and dust explosive atmospheres up to Zone 1/21. The main unit can
be mounted at a distance of
up to 20m to the workplace. The cable quick couplings at the optional
external measuring module and the
plain text diagnostic display in the main unit allow easy initial
installation, handling and maintenance
.
