Newson Gale has announced that the self-testing Bond-Rite EZ portable static grounding and bonding assembly is now available equipped with a heavy duty stainless steel clamp.

The heavy duty clamp is fitted with a special jaw grip able to clamp onto virtually any surface, including field-installed grounding rods.

This robust clamping mechanism, combined with sharp tungsten carbide ’tooth contact points’, penetrates through even the heaviest build-up of paint, coatings, corrosion, or other insulating deposits.

The EZ clamp, like its general-application predecessor, is a self-contained, easy-to-use device that provides, and continuously verifies, a low-resistance bonding connection.

In service it signals the existence of a safe connection to ground – less than 10 ohms – through a flashing green LED indicator on the handle of the monitoring clamp.

There are numerous operations in industry, transportation and emergency response where it is necessary to establish a low-resistance bond or connection to a local ground point, especially where vehicles such as vacuum trucks or a variety of other mobile or portable equipment are employed.

The self-contained Bond-Rite EZ is available in a range of options, with 5m or 10m retractable Cen-Stat cables, or with portable cable reels with up to 100ft capacity.

The Bond-Rite EZ is Atex-certified as intrinsically safe and suitable for use in all flammable gas, vapour and combustible dust atmospheres.

It also carries the equivalent FM and CSA approvals for all hazardous locations.

The recently modified PCB now enables the battery to power the EZ for up to a year (based on typical cycle of 3hrs use per day over a five-day week).

The Ultralife battery has a shelf-life of 10 years.

For over 25 years, Newson Gale has been in the business of protecting people and assets from the hazards of static electricity.

Newson Gale serves industries where processes that generate significant amounts of static electricity have the potential to ignite flammable or explosive atmospheres.The major industries served are:

-chemical/petrochemical manufacturing and distribution.

-pharmaceutical/clean room processes.

-paints,coatings and solvents manufacturing and distribution.

-food and beverage production and distribution.

Newson Gale’s commitment to research and innovation has led to the creation of patented industry firsts that optimise the safety of people and protection of plant assets.

Our solutions are divided into three flexible product categories that are specified for customers depending on the level of safety required to protect people and plant assets from the flammable/explosive hazard.The three categories are described as:

Earth-Rite:continuous static dissipative monitoring with positive indication and interlock control outputs.

Bond-Rite:continuous static dissipative monitoring with positive indication.

Cen-Stat:mechanical earthing and bonding devices and hazardous area accessories.

Depending on the country specification,our equipment carries ATEX,FM,IECEx and SIL2 hazardous area approvals and are fully compliant with internationally recognised best practise standards for controlling static electricity
