Static charges in the malt handling systems

​Q: Are static charges generated during Malt transfer through conveyor i.e. Bucket or pneumatic?  If yes how do you deal with it in a safe manner?

A: The transfer of grain in pneumatic systems generates static electricity which can discharge and potentially cause and explosion. This dangerous situation can be addressed by grounding the grain transfer equipment and interconnecting spouting. Ideally to a common central grounding system.
