Hi All

 

Maintenance person working in a tank farm area here.

 

Circulating lubricating oils, especially through a filter/strainer, would cause static electricity build-up in them. Suppose we were to perform a recirculation with the product itself(lube oil) in order to clean out the tank, will this pose any risk to the user due to sudden static electricity discharge?

 

Are there any means to measure/quantify the amount of static electricity built up in the running fluid? (like a voltmeter of some sort?)

 

Cheers
