Title Electrostatic charge - Dangers and preventive measures
Original title Elektrostatische Aufladungen - Gefahren und Bekämpfungsmassnahmen [in German]
Bibliographic information Verlag Tribüne, Am Treptower Park 28-30, DDR-1193 Berlin, 1985. 49p. Illus. 28 ref.
Abstract Principles and characteristics: mechanism of static electricity generation in various environments (solids, liquids, granular substances), types of discharge, ways of preventing the building up of hazardous levels of static electricity (earthing, relative humidity, additives, field separation, ionisation, humidification). Practical problems and solutions: coating of containers, glue production, cleaning of tankers, loading of tank cars, transfer of liquids likely to accumulate an electrostatic charge, emptying of bulk material, interference due to static electricity in microelectronics and in the optical industry.
