For any person working in the oil and gas industry who is responsible for the safety of employees, colleagues, plant equipment and property, one of the most potentially confusing aspects in providing a safe operating environment is trying to determine if operations have the potential to discharge electrostatic sparks into flammable or combustible atmospheres.
Because static ignition hazards occur at the atomic level, it is naturally difficult to visualize how, and why, static electricity is a hazard in locations where flammable and combustible products are regularly processed. There are so many variables that play a role in electrostatic hazards, it is almost impossible to predict the net e
