ELECTROSTATIC CHARGE GENERATION CAUSED BY TANK CLEANING MACHINE AND DANGER OF EXPLOSION

A discharge from an unearthed object to earth is suspected as a possible source of an incentive spark in tank. Example of possible unearthed conductor is a slug of water produced by the washing process. Tests of the possibility of creating water slugs show that the very high capacity fixed washing machine is able to produce dangerous water slugs, on the other hand, with the portable type of washing machine no such water slugs can be detected. Order from NSFI as No. 15011.
