Approved and reliable grounding clamps are characterised by high clamping forces, and penetrate through the existing insulating layers such as dirt, grease and paint. This establishes an effective metal-to-metal connection and guarantees secure grounding.
The best grounding clamp is useless if it’s not available at the right moment. Unfortunately grounding clamps and associated cables are often abused for other purposes in practice, and are then no longer available for their actual task. Therefore, regularly check whether your employees have access to intact grounding rollers, cables and brackets.
Traditional grounding clamps often represent a source of danger themselves, because a spark can develop during connection. The SparkSafe® grounding clamp from REMBE®, however, is made of conductive plastic which has a sufficiently low resistance, in order to ensure the safe dissipation of electrostatic charge. At the same time, the internal resistance for high energy discharges, which represents potential ignition sources, is too high.
The SparkSafe® grounding clamp is equipped with metal teeth that penetrate through insulating layers such as dirt, grease, paint and rust. With its 2.5 meter or 5 meter long spiral cable and its large opening width of 30 mm it can ground SparkSafe® spark-free a broad variety of containers.
