The anti-static set for Burkle pumps is essential when decanting flammable liquids. Without a properly earthed system static charge can build up, which can result in fire or even explosion.
Connect the Burkle anti static set correctly following the instructions below
Setup 1 – decanting into a conductive container
If you are pumping flammable liquids into a conductive container, use the black wire to connect the bulk container to earth (e.g. via a water pipe) and use the red wire to connect the two containers together.
Setup 2 – decanting into a non-conductive container
If the receiving container is not conductive, use the black wire to connect the bulk container to earth (e.g. via a water pipe) and use the bare copper wire to connect the bulk container to the decanted liquid.
