Static Charge Dissipation in Pharmaceutical Silicone Sifter Sieves

Client Problem :

Fire hazard due to static charge collection on the edge of silicone sifter sieves used in the pharmaceutical industry.

Solution:

  • Specialized compound developed by formulation team at western rubbers
  • The new compound is a semi conductor which dissipates static collected on the edge of the sieves.
  • This compound has surface resistivity of 10^6 ohm/cm.
  • This compound is not only static charge dissipative, but also adheres to the stringent FDA standard of the pharmaceutical industry.

Result:

  • No incident of Fire hazard has been reported since in pharmaceutical industry.
  • Safety standard of plant and employees improved as static shocks are prevented.
