A Shocking Danger: Static Electricity and Hose Assemblies

30/07/2018

Most of us are familiar with the shock associated with static electricity. Children have amused themselves for centuries by shuffling their feet across a carpet and touching a doorknob or playmate for a quick zap. As entertaining as these events may be, static electricity commands respect. In an industrial hose, static electricity can cause volatile products to explode or even burn through the side of a hose.
