Prevent an explosion at your worksite!

Prevent an explosion at your worksite!

Electrostatic discharges destroy filter elements, damage valves and sensors and can even cause explosions in the hydraulic tank. Valve pistons will stick, shafts become jammed in their bearings and the changing interval for filter elements will be unusually short if there are excessive amounts of ageing products in the operating medium.

How to prevent this? In this White Paper you will find out how to ensure your system operates without the risk of electrostatic discharge.
