Chemical & Petrochemical

The chemical and petrochemical sector relies on the efficient transportation, handling and processing of many hazardous and highly flammable chemical products.

Supply chain activities like the transfer of chemicals to and from tank trucks and railcars; filling, mixing and blending in drums or IBCs, and minor operations like dispensing solvents from safety cans generate hazardous levels of static electricity. The most effective static control solution of eliminating the risk of fires and explosions caused by static electricity is to use modern fit for purpose static control equipment.
