Basics of Static Electricity Webinar

Basics of Static Electricity Webinar

EXAIR's new Basics of Static Electricity Webinar will help you learn what causes static electricity. Static be a large disruptor of processes within manufacturing facilities. It can cause problems with maintaining product quality, keeping process speeds at optimum levels and the morale of personnel experiencing static shocks. Knowing how to identify a static charge, the series of events that are causing the charge, and various ways to eliminate the nuisance, are keys to keeping your facility on top of its game. Attend this Webinar to learn how to determine if static electricity is actually the issue and methods to test for it. Learn several methods used in industry to eliminate static charge. Register to watch our Webinar live on November 7th at 2 pm or on demand. https://exair.co/184_fweb
