Written by Laurence Britton, who has over 20 years' experience in the fields of static ignition and process fire and explosion hazards research, this resource addresses an area not extensively covered in process safety standards or literature: understanding and reducing potential hazards associated with static electricity. The book covers the nature of static electricity, characteristics and effective energies of different static resources, techniques for evaluating static electricity hazards, general bonding, grounding, and other techniques used to control static or prevent ignition, gases and liquids, powders and hybrid mixtures.The inception voltage for corona is reduced with reduced pressure and reduced radius of curvature of the electrode. Fine wires typically produce significant corona currents at about I kV in atmospheric air. While increased gas density usuallyanbsp;...
