This guide covers the measurement of volume resistivity of powders. Calculations outlined in the guide can be used in assessing the risk of static discharge and subsequent deflagration presented by a powder handling process.
Used to help determine risk of static discharge which may ignite ignition sensitive powders. Users are safety professionals who determine risk in industries which handle materials in a powder form.
conductance; conductive; static dispative; insulating; non-conductive
