Grounding Solutions for Electrostatic Discharge

In addition to bearing protection, Helwig Carbon’s versatile grounding kits can also be used to reduce electrostatic buildup on a variety of applications. Excess charges of static electricity are neutralized by finding a path to ground. If no alternate path is provided, an electrostatic discharge can cause problems such as damaged product, ignition source, employee discomfort, and expensive downtime. Helwig’s BPK products can prevent unwanted electrostatic discharge by providing the least resistive path to ground; this will effectively neutralize the excess static electricity buildup. A few applications where Helwig has provided grounding solutions to prevent electrostatic buildup include:

  • Welding
  • Industrial/Commercial Laundry
  • Packaging Industry
  • Large-scale Printing
  • Conveyor Systems
  • Bulk Powder Handling
  • Radio Interference
  • Protecting other drive components such as gears and pulleys
  • Protecting encoders
