The EarthRite RTR ensures that it has a connection to the general mass of the earth. This is a critical input as a connection to earth is the only means by which the static electricity can be transferred from the road tanker, preventing the accumulation of static electricity. The IECEx ATEX SIL 2 cCSAus certified EarthRite RTR is the most advanced system for protecting personnel and plant assets from static hazards Jan 14, 2013 Road tanker earthing system for static control Newson Gale Accuracy and dependability is the thing that the EarthRite RTR gives to HAZLOC well being experts and designers who are tasked with shielding work force and plant resources from the ignition dangers of electricity produced via friction amid tank truck stacking and emptying operations.
The EarthRite RTR utilises patented" TriMode" technology to establish three key inputs that must be in place before the loadingunloading operation can commence. MODE 1 Road Tanker Recognition In accordance with the recommendations of IEC, the EarthRite RTR determines if the grounding clamp is connected to a road tanker. The EarthRite RTR is the most advanced system for protecting personnel and plant assets from static hazards during road tanker loading and offloading operations.
The EarthRite RTR ensures that it has a connection to the general mass of the earth. This is a critical input as a connection to earth is the only means by which the static electricity can be transferred from the road tanker, preventing the accumulation of static electricity. The EarthRite RTR performs three critical functions which ensure the fire and explosion risk of an ignition caused by static electricity is eliminated.
The first function the RTR performs is in determining if the driver or operator has made a secure connection to the body of the tank truck. The strobe light is mounted in an elevated position and when the equipment is correctly grounded, flashes continuously informing personnel that a transfer process is underway and is protected from the static hazard.
The strobe light can be used in conjunction with the EarthRite RTR, EarthRite PLUS and EarthRite TELLUS. EarthRite MGV Vacuum trucks and tank trucks, RTR permits product transfer Page 2 of 10 Technical Specification Removing the need for taking manual resistance readings or interacting with complex system interfaces the operator activates the system by simply The EarthRite RTR TriMode is a unique system specifically designed for road tanker trucks.
In addition to a ground continuity check, the system carries out a tanker verification check, confirming that the dual circuit ground clamp has been applied to the tanker truck and not any other conductive Feb 06, 2012 The upgraded and enhanced features of the new EarthRite RTR and EarthRite PLUS models herald the first wave of a radical advancement in static grounding technology designed to provide the user with multiple benefits in operation, safety and maintenance. The EarthRite RTR achieves this by monitoring the resistance between the RTR clamps connection to the tank truck and the RTRs connection to the verified
