The patent-pending Earth-Rite MGV from Newson Gale is a truck-mounted static ground verification system designed to improve safety during the transfer of flammable or combustible materials.

The system derives its power source from the vehicle battery and uses intrinsically safe monitoring techniques to verify a good bond to a valid ground point and, more importantly, to provide confirmation that the ground point to which it is attached represents a satisfactorily low resistance to true earth.

The Earth-Rite MGV — which is designed to be simple to install and operate — is designed for use in the global petrochemical industry and has been certified according to the requirements of IECEX, Atex, CSA/US and Nepsi.

The unit can also be used in all common gas, vapour or dust-explosive environments.

Key features

  • Bright flashing green LED cluster — this provides confirmation of positive bonding and grounding
  • Pair of changeover contacts — this provides connection to additional safety devices such as strobe lights or audible alarms
  • Heavy-duty stainless steel clamp with a universal clamping jaw — located at the ‘business end’ of the system, this can be connected to flat or rounded surfaces, including directly to ground rods

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
