Application Spotlight Earth-Rite® FIBC Static grounding protection for Type C FIBC located in potentially flammable/combustible gas or dust atmospheres

Type C bags are designed to dissipate static electricity through static dissipative threads that are interwoven through the bag’s material. Grounding tabs located on the bags are points where grounding systems can be connected to ensure static electricity does not accumulate on the bag. To ensure bags destined for use in hazardous areas will not accumulate static electricity to hazardous levels there are several standards that provide guidance on the key parameters to which Type C bags must comply.
