• buildup of static
  • The manufacturer of the gas pump very plainly and simply explained that if I get out of my car to put fuel in the tank, I should not get back in the car with fuel pumping until I touched the front frame of the car and discharged any potential buildup of static electricity. (ehstoday.com)
  • Removing or preventing a buildup of static charge can be as simple as opening a window or using a humidifier to increase the moisture content of the air, making the atmosphere more conductive. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the industrial settings such as paint or flour plants as well as in hospitals, antistatic safety boots are sometimes used to prevent a buildup of static charge due to contact with the floor. (wikipedia.org)
  • generate static electricity
  • But last year, a group of researchers at Northwestern University found that two sheets of the same polymer, like Teflon, can generate static electricity, also called contact electrification (pdf). (discovermagazine.com)
  • Other unsafe processes that may generate static electricity include pneumatic transport of solids, a release of pressurized gas with solids, industrial vacuum cleaners and spray painting operations The term inerting is often loosely used for any application involving an inert gas, not conforming with the technical definitions in NFPA standards.

  • surfaces
  • In this case cotton fibers are sticking on the surface of stationary rubber due to static electricity and over the period it starts accumulate on its surfaces which is the problem for us. (physicsforums.com)
  • Grzybowski and his team created static electricity between several materials and then scanned the charged surfaces with a Kelvin probe force microscope . (discovermagazine.com)
  • A static electric charge can be created whenever two surfaces contact and separate, and at least one of the surfaces has a high resistance to electric current (and is therefore an electrical insulator). (wikipedia.org)
  • Dust accumulation grows exponentially, since the accumulated dust creates new static surfaces and physical bloccades for new dust to cling to. (wikipedia.org)
  • In an advertising campaign for Microsoft's MSN 8 Internet service, on October 24, 2002, hundreds of decals of the MSN butterfly logo were affixed to surfaces in New York City and the New York Times reported that it was static cling that held them there, however it's more likely that the decals used are of the type held by surface tension against smooth surfaces like glass windows.

  • creates
  • In the prime universe, the doomsday machine creates numerous static lightning storms along the eastern seaboard. (wikipedia.org)
  • build
  • As a manufacturer, we constantly have been asked by companies, contractors, military and consultants, "How do you properly handle the potential problem of static electricity build-up … when you are ventilating a tank or manhole? (ehstoday.com)
  • He explained that every ventilation system in their hospital was grounded and they had to be tested to assure it had a good ground so that no static electricity was able to build up on their fans and blowers. (ehstoday.com)
  • energy
  • How above Explosive energy converted to electrical power like the wait of nuclear power covered to electrical energy then rebuilt to atomic state by rebuilding the nuclear atom This article provides information on the following six methods of producing electricity. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Characteristics of "static" electricity include: 1) The number of of positive and negative electric charges within a material may not be equal, 2) voltage is high and current is low, 3) electrical forces (attraction and repulsion) can reach across great distances, and 4) electric fields (as opposed to magnetic fields) become very important. (compadre.org)
  • important
  • One reason is that the operation of the versorium is simple to understand and the device is suitable for building by even young students, but can still be used to illustrate many important concepts in electricity. (wikipedia.org)
  • This process is crucially important in the operation of a variety of electronic devices and can be used for electricity generation (such as thermionic converters and electrodynamic tethers) or cooling. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • Certain substances can reduce static cling and are often included in fabric softener and dryer sheets. (wikipedia.org)
  • work
  • These documents provide requirements and actual procedures for safe entry and work in confined spaces and, more specifically, they address the issues with regard to controlling static electricity. (ehstoday.com)
