The Effect of Temperature and Relative Humidity on the Accumulation of Electrostatic Charges on Fabrics and Primary Explosives
EXPLOSIVES RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ESTABLISHMENT WALTHAM ABBEY (UNITED KINGDOM)
Pagination or Media Count:
The generation and accumulation of electrostatic charges on explosive powders and fabrics constitutes a potential hazard situation, especially in the handling and manufacture of primary explosives. The report reviews the relationship between relative humidity, temperature and the development of electrostatic charges and proposes standards of temperature and relative humidity appropriate for working with these materials.
