Learning what causes static electricity in manufacturing facilities

Static electricity can be a major nuisance in manufacturing facilities. It can affect the finish/quality of the products being produced, impact the speed of the operation, and cause workers to experience uncomfortable shocks. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

There are steps that can be taken to eliminate or control static within a facility, and EXAIR can help. EXAIR's White Paper "Basics of Static Electricity" is designed to help readers learn about the causes of static electricity, the steps that can be taken to eliminate static, and the products available to help control it.
