Chemical company requiring ground monitoring with visual indication
Manufacturer of process control systems
Whilst conducting an informal site survey, Newson Gale utilized the OhmGuard® to check existing grounds and found several items which were not grounded or did not pass 10 Ohms due to a build up of paint or poor connection. This was situated in the press area where each press has eight (8) stations which require grounding for items that move in and out regularly. Newson Gale originally suggested three (3) Earth-Rite® MULTIPOINT systems per press, however CFC International chose to use one (1) Earth-Rite® MULTIPOINT with eight (8) VESX45-IP’s to ground and monitor the eight (8) ‘moveable’ items which included 55 gallon drums, pump carts and solvents drums. CFC International are not using the process control dry contacts at the moment. In addition to this, CFC International purchased an OhmGuard®, 10 Ohms to check the existing permanent grounds.CFC International Corporation, an ITW Company, is a worldwide specialty coated film company. They produce chemically complex coatings, films, foils and laminates. They also have a sister company in Michigan, who are also a customer of Newson Gale.
