The Earth-Rite Mobile Ground Verification system (MGV) patented technology allows personnel to receive an automatic confirmation of a positive electrostatic earth connection when manning trucks that collect and transfer flammable or combustible products.
Vacuum trucks and bulk chemical road tankers are susceptible to a dangerous build-up of static discharge, which can become a hidden source of ignition. To prevent this, it is recommended that operators fully earth their vehicles prior to carrying out a task.
The Earth-Rite MGV is designed to enable operators to establish safe earthing of their vehicle in accordance with the recommended practices in the API standard 2219 “Safe Operation of Vacuum Trucks in Petroleum Service.”
Typical grounding applications include:
- Cleaning and material recovery operations
- Transporting chemicals
- Transporting flammable product
- Hazmat recovery operations
