Título Prevention of ignition hazards due to static electricity during the pressure-spraying of liquids
Título original Vermeidung von Zündgefahren infolge elektrostatischer Aufladungen beim Versprühen von Flüssigkeiten unter hohem Druck [en alemán]
Información bibliográfica 1983, No.7, p.370-374. Illus. 7 ref.
Resumen Spraying of liquids under high pressure results in a cloud of electrostatically charged droplets. The conditions under which discharges occur, and under which explosive vapour-air and gas-air mixtures ignite during cleaning operations inside containers, were studied. The liquids involved included water, xylene, and toluene. Safe container sizes, pressure levels and liquid flow-rates were established. The ignition risk increased when solid impurities were found in the liquids.
