Movement of air through ducting can build up static electricity on the duct surface. Use anti-static or conductive duct with a continuous flow path from the duct to the blower to the grounding connection. We supply anti-static ducting, which when properly configured will limit the buildup of a static charge.
Certifications include ATEX, IECEx, INMETRO, UL and CSA.
