Earth-Rite hazardous area static grounding systems from Newson Gale incorporate safety features that ensure static electricity does not pose an ignition risk.

Earth-Rite systems help to prevent fires and explosions occurring from electrostatic incendive spark discharges during transfer, processing and handling of flammable or combustible liquids, gases and powders.

The upgraded and enhanced Earth-Rite RTR and Earth-Rite Plus advance static grounding technology, providing users with a range of operational, safety and maintenance related benefits.

The Earth-Rite Plus may be used to prove good low-resistance static grounding and bonding connections for all conductive (metal) items, including drums, vessels, IBCs, mobile tanks and railcars, in line with Cenelec and NFPA guidelines (less than 10Ohms resistance to ground).

For dedicated operations involving Road Tanker Trucks, the Earth-Rite RTR provides additional failsafe static ground verification and Road Tanker Recognition.

Both systems are certified to IECEx and ATEX standards for installation and use in all common hazardous areas, including the highest gas group approvals (EEx d (ia) IIC T6).

Power supply units may be selected from 220/240 or 110/120V AC and are suitable for operating temperatures from -40 to 55C.

The Earth-Rite Plus and Earth-Rite RTR have been assessed for functional safety and received a SIL 2 rating according to IEC 61508.

Permissive condition (verified safe static grounding prior to product transfer) results in a high-visibility local indication via pulsing green multi-cluster LEDs, as well as a pair of voltage-free contacts to enable control of pump and valves in addition to outputs to control systems or alarm devices.

All units are compact, easy to install and maintain, and are shipped complete with an installation manual, an optional installer’s kit containing cable glands, wiring and onboard diagnostic ’self checking’ electronics for setup and commission.

The Intrinsically Safe Ground Connection Junction Box, together with Quick Connect feature on the cable and clamp, enhances safety and simplifies ongoing maintenance in hazardous areas.

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
