Application Spotlight OhmGuard - Hose continuity tester

The metal components of hoses used in flammable product transfer operations have the potential to accumulate static electricity if they are not bonded to a grounded road tanker truck or vacuum truck. Examples of metal components that have a potential to accumulate hazardous levels of electrostatic charge are end couplings and metal wire helixes that run through the structure of the hose. If components like these become isolated they can accumulate static electricity and rapidly build up to a voltage capable of discharging a static spark into the potentially combustible atmosphere in which the driver and truck is operating.
