The ground monitoring device ensures that tank containers, drums, road tankers, rail cars and IBCs are correctly electrostatically grounded during the loading of flammable liquids. The device provides a conductive connection to the ground and monitors in parallel the quality of the electrostatic grounding. This guarantees that the electrostatic charge remains at a safe level and that no explosion hazard is generated by uncontrolled energy discharge.
