THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT CONVEYORS
STATIC CHARGES CAN POTENTIALLY HARM EMPLOYEES, DAMAGE
SENSITIVE PRODUCTS, CAUSE FIRES, AND EVEN LEAD TO EXPLOSION.
Electrostatic dissipative (ESd) plastics are becoming increasingly utilized in conveyor systems because of
their anti-static properties. Conveyors are integral to many manufacturing and production processes, and
the use of ESd plastics can help minimize the risk of static discharge.
During the manufacturing process, electrostatic discharge can be generated from the interaction of
materials moving through a conveyor system. The presence of these charges is problematic because they
can cause harmful effects to the products, components being conveyed,
employees, and sensitive electronic controls.
Different ESd plastics can be used to meet specific production and product requirements. For example,
some ESd plastics have different levels of conductivity that can be adjusted to meet the specific production
requirements for a given product. Other ESd plastics are designed to be particularly resistant to chemical
or environmental factors that are common in specific manufacturing environments.
