Application of static elimination rod in plastic industry
In many production processes in the plastics industry, the classic damage is huge, it may affect the quality of the product, and may cause fire and blasting. In the working environment, all fire and blasting events caused by static electricity follow the same procedure, that is: charge separation occurs first, then charge accumulation, if the charge cannot escape, electrostatic discharge will occur, when combustibles are burned, it may May cause fire and explosion hazard.
Static damage control methods can be divided into five categories: grounding, humidification, speed limit, antistatic materials, static elimination rods. In the process of industrial production, due to the different working environment, procedures and materials, the prevention and control methods of electrostatic damage will also be different. In the selection process, we must consider the process environment, conditions and constraints, as well as capital, management system and human quality and other factors. There is no control method for electrostatic damage that can be applied to all industrial processes or situations. Sometimes two or more electrostatic damage control methods are used at the same time.
In most industrial processes, static electricity builds up, making people uncomfortable, causing harm to human bodies, and even causing fires and explosions. The onset of these electrostatic damages necessitates the following development process. First of all, static electricity is generated by friction, induction or conduction, and then charges of different polarities are accumulated on equipment, personnel or products. These charges are constantly accumulated enough to cause discharge. The energy released by static electricity is enough to ignite the surrounding flammable substances. , Causing fire or blasting. Understanding the various stages of static electricity damage helps to identify the causes of static electricity damage and formulate corresponding control measures, thereby improving the safety of the process site and operators, and effectively reducing static electricity damage and production losses.
