Truck Grounding Systems
Make Sure Your Vehicles Are Grounded Before You Load Them!
Safety interlock can be tied into any combination of precautionary measures - pumps, warning lights, audible alarms, etc.
Proper grounding systems for trucks and railcars prevents accidents.
New technology in this product provides an out of the box solution to insure your truck or railcar is properly grounded before loading begins.
The Earth-Rite PLUS® provides positive verification of static ground connection on a wide range of industrial plant equipment, including tanker trucks, railcars, drums, containers and other conductive equipment.
Whenever flammable liquids or powders are transferred, or wherever there is a risk of conductive plant items becoming isolated from ground within hazardous locations, effective grounding and bonding is necessary to ensure safe dissipation of static electricity to prevent fires and explosions which can be ignited by static.
When connected to a tanker truck or other conductive equipment, the intrinsically safe monitoring circuit verifies a low resistance connection and dissipation path to ground. Good connection is confirmed by an indicator light and the interlock is released (switch contact), enabling the transfer/process to start.
The Earth-Rite PLUS is approved for safe use in hazardous locations, and conforms to the requirements of all major US and International static control codes of practice.

CIVACON™ Cane Probe
Cane probes are used to provide overall detection where a permanent sensor cannot be properly affixed to a tank or railcar. They provide a portable, flexible solution to meet a variety of overfill requirements for safe top loading. Cane probes utilize modern, instant-on optic principals. Adjusting the sensor position in the tank easily sets the sensing point. This is accomplished with a large adjustment knob on the cane probe clamp.
Plug and Cord Sets
CIVACON™ brand plugs and cords are used with junction boxes to connect the overfill detection monitor to the tank transport at the terminal. Basically, there are two types of systems: optic (blue, 6-pin) and thermistor (green, 8-pin).
8130 Series Optic Ground Verification Monitor
The 8130 Series Optic monitor is compatible with up to eight optic level sensors or onboard monitors to monitor the status of liquid within a tank. The 8130 provides automatic warning of product overflow at predetermined levels. The system uses the standard optic signal format to communicate with an onboard control monitor or straight optic system. The system also includes ground verification.
8460 Series Diagnostic Opti-Therm Monitor
The 8460 Opti-Therm Overfill Detection System recognizes the signal technology on the transport, verifies grounding, and communicates with the terminal automation system (T.A.S). The 8460SRC is a direct replacement chassis upgrading other systems with a simple drop-in technology.

My product was shipped the same day the PO was approved!
The entire process went well. Chris Hite had a quote to me within 30 minutes of consultation.The product was available and the purchase was complete and in route the same day. My product was shipped the same day the PO was approved! Operators await the installation and will breath a sigh of relief knowing that they are truly grounded when unloading potentially hazardous cargo.
Phyllis Sikes was right on it!
I would recommend this product because it prevents overfilling rail cars. Our salesperson was right on it! The product was delivered within 3 weeks as stated on the order acknowledgement.We were able to resume loading railcars at our facility.

The delivery extremely prompt and well within specified lead time
Greg Crawford was responsive. Always got him on the first call. Always got back to me when he said he would. I recommend this product. It is by far the best quality product we've used in all of the grounding units we've used on all our truck-loading skids . Nothing but positive feedback. We're extremely pleased and we'll definetly use SafeRack on the next skid.
