Introducing to IMD 2012/13: Newson Gale

Hello again and welcome to our latest installment of Introducing, this week we are pleased to introduce Newson Gale to IMD 2012/13.

For 30 years Newson Gale has been protecting people and business assets from the dangers of static hazards which according to the Institute of Chemical Engineers cause at least two serious fires or explosions everyday worldwide. While their areas of expertise include chemical & petrochemical distribution and the manufacturing of paints & solvents they provide a vital service to the international milling industry in the handling and storage of combustible organic ingredients such as flour and sugar.

They have a plethora of locations worldwide for the purpose of distribution and also operate from their main offices in UK, the US and Germany. Newson Gale are probably best recognised for their advanced techniques in static grounding and spark protection and have developed several important products to achieve this.

The Earth-Rite FIBC system verifies the resistance and safe grounding of“Big-Bags” or “Super-Sacks” in combustible or flammable atmospheres. This advanced system ensures that resistance of the flexible container is within the correct parameters as specified by International Hazardous Area Static Control Codes of Practice according to Newson Gale. It is also capable of interlocking with filling/discharge machinery or control/alarm systems to prevent dangerous levels of accumulation of static electricity.

They are also responsible for the Earth-Rite Multipoint for specialized plant and equipment situated in combustible or flammable atmospheres, with several potentially isolated conductive components (such as dryers, filling and conveying systems and is also corrosion resistant and made of hygiene clean stainless steal.

Once again we are delighted to be welcoming such and important and prestigious enterprise to the International Milling. For more information on Newson Gale and its products please visit their profile page with IMD or visit www.newson-gale.co.uk.
