About The Webinar
Are you responsible for industrial premises that handle flammable materials? Do you design new process plants or maintain existing ones? Do you work in hazardous areas?
Electrostatic hazards are often given the blame as the cause of an accident when it is unclear what in fact was the ignition source. Yet, the processes leading to the generation of electrostatic charge, accumulation, and discharge are well understood, and hence, electrostatic hazards as a possibility for causing ignition of flammable gas, vapor, or dust clouds can be prevented.
In this session, Dr. Kees van Wingerden explained how to analyze static problems and how to apply effective solutions.
