Precision and reliability is what the Earth-Rite® RTR provides to HAZLOC safety professionals and engineers who are tasked with protecting personnel and plant assets from the ignition hazards of static electricity during tank truck loading and unloading operations.
The loading and unloading of tank trucks with large quantities of chemicals and powders generates static electricity which, if left to accumulate on a tank truck, could discharge electrostatic sparks with energies far in excess of the minimum ignition energies of a vast range of combustible gases, vapours and dusts. The ignition of such atmospheres by static electricity can be prevented by ensuring the tank truck is grounded.
Grounding ensures there can be no build of static electricity on the tank and chassis of the tank truck and the most reliable way of grounding your tank trucks is to specify an Earth-Rite RTR. With over 3,000 units in the field the 2nd generation Earth-Rite RTR is the most reliable and precise method of grounding tank trucks today.
