Articles on static electricity
Static electricity is an often overlooked factor in the industry. Despite the fact that we all are able to relate to the phenomenon through own experiences in the form of eg the shock we get when we get out of the car, taking a handle after walking over the hotel carpet or the crackle from a synthetic shirt that is pulled over his head. Do you remember the lesson in physics when the teacher rubbed a cat skin against an ebonit shaft or charging items or perhaps himself with a van de Graff generator? Well then you have "seen" the problem demonstrated.
In any business that processes or handles at least one component which is an insulator, there may be reason to bring up static electricity on the agenda. Insulators that we all come into contact with on a daily basis is eg paper, plastic, cardboard, textiles, glass, rubber, etc..
If you want to know more how static electricity can be used to enhance the productivity of a process? If so, the following articles written by Reinhold Rutks is recommended:
