Static Grounding and Grounding and Bonding

From the Newson Gale Knowledge Center:

Definition of Grounding and Bonding and Static Grounding

1. What is Grounding and Bonding

Grounding & Bonding is a combination of Grounding and Bonding techniques. Bonding is the process of connecting two or more conductive objects together by means of a conductor so that they are at the same electrical potential, but not necessarily at the same potential as the earth. On the other hand, Grounding describes the process of bonding one or more conductive objects to the ground, so that all objects are at zero (0) electrical potential.

2. What is Static Grounding

Static Grounding is the process of bonding one or more conductive objects to the ground, so that all objects are at zero (0) electrical potential, to prevent static build up. In order to secure hazardous areas Static Grounding Systems use explosion protection and intrinsically safe techniques to monitor acceptable resistance to ground and provide verification and interlocks.

  1. The reason test and tagging of equipment is required is to identify anything that might cause an electrical fault in the workplace that might eventually be the cause of a fire.
