Electrostat-Ex 2014

Many industrial processes involving flammable materials such as solvents and powders need to control electrostatic charging and electrostatic discharges as part of the overall strategy for avoiding fire and explosion hazards. Shocks to personnel are also a nearly ubiquitous nuisance in many industrial, office, retail and other situations. And yet to many, including those with responsibility for its control, the whole area of static electricity remains a mystery! Following on from last year’s successful event, Electrostat-Ex 2014 will continue to focus on these phenomena, introducing additional aspects of the new IEC standard document IEC/TS 60079-32-1: Explosive Atmospheres – Part 32-1: Electrostatic hazards, Guidance not previously covered, and covering other national and international standards, including NFPA and JNIOSH standards.
