Earth-Rite RTR

The Earth-Rite RTR system utilises patented “Tri-mode” technology to establish three key inputs that must be in place before the loading/unloading operation can commence.

Mode 1 | Road Tanker Recognition

In accordance with recommendations of IEC 60079-32, the Earth-Rite RTR determines if the grounding clamp is connected to the main body of the road tanker.

Earth-Rite Accessories

Strobe Light

These compact yet powerful are an Ex Strobe-Lightsoptional extra for use with the Earth-RitePLUS®™ or Earth-Rite RTR Static Ground Interlock System when used in outdoor locations such as Road Tanker and Rail Car loading stations in Tank Farms and Storage and Distribution Terminals.

The Ex Strobe-Light can also be linked to any other Newson Gale Earth-Rite system in applications where process control interlocking is not possible or practical.

In these situations, the Ex Strobe-Light can be used to highlight a "safe ground""no-ground" or condition, to alert supervisors during flammable product transfer operations.

Ex Strode Lights

Sun Hood

Designed for operating environments subject to intense sunlight, the ERII Sun Shield prevents direct sunlight hitting the indicators on the Earth-Rite RTR and Earth-Rite PLUS static grounding systems.

The Sun Shield casts a shadow over the indicators during peak sun light hours so that operators can easily view the ground status indicators.

The shield is constructed from stainless steel and can be fitted to any installation in a matter of minutes.

Product Code: ER2/SH

SWGKP1 – Portable Surface Wire Grounding Kit

The grounding kit consists of 4xSS Electrodes, 3x SS Grounding Wires, Fasteners & Canvas Carry Bag (GRK)

A quick and easy to use grounding kit which may be swiftly deployed in emergency or combustible material transfer operations where pre-existing designated grounding points are not available or accessible.

OhmGuard Hose Testing Clamp – OGC15/BOX, OGC10/BOX

The OhmGuard® electrical hose continuity tester is designed to test hoses used on vacuum trucks and tanker trucks prior to the transfer of flammable or combustible products.

Typical Applications:
  • Testing vacuum truck hoses prior to spill cleanup or material recovery operations.
  • Testing bulk tanker truck hoses prior to the delivery of flammable products (e.g. solvents) to storage tank farms.
  • General resistance testing of chemical and petrochemical compatible hoses.
  • Electrical resistance testing of plant equipment.
  • Spot testing of bonding assemblies and conductors in the field.
