Newson Gale has published a white paper that provides detailed, practical guidelines to ensure safe transfer of flammable or combustible products to or from tanker trucks or similar mobile equipment. Titled “Achieving Safe Tanker Truck Loading / Unloading,” this free paper informs readers on how high-voltage electric charges can be generated when some liquids or powders come into contact with conductive objects. In addition, it contains the three most current guidelines that protect against this danger by ensuring that the feed system is securely grounded before and during the transfer process.
