Reduce fire risks by preventing sparks from static electricity
Use antistatic wires to prevent sparks from static electricity generated by movement and flow of flammable liquids. During waste collection operations, use one antistatic wire to bond from a safety container to a receiving vessel such as a funnel, then properly ground by attaching a second antistatic wire to the drum and then to an earth ground. Standard wire lengths are 3-foot (1-M) and 10-foot (3-M); for longer reach, use several wires with ¼-in (6-mm) terminal ends. Custom length assemblies are available in 3-foot (1-M) increments.
