Abstract (en)

A pallet for carrying liquid containers has a metal basket (3) supported on the pallet via a conducting base plate (2) and is earthed via metal clip (10) fastened to the side of the pallet. The metal clip is C-shaped with the upper flange secured to the pallet via suitable fasteners and with the lower flange secured under a support block (15). This ensures that the basket is safely earthed without fire risk via static discharge.

Abstract (de)

Bei einem Palettenbehälter für Transport und Lagerung von Flüssigkeiten ist ein Kunststoffbehälter auf einer Palette (1) in einem Gitterkorb (3) aus Metall angeordnet und der Gitterkorb (3) über die Palette (1) geerdet (9,18), um etwa entstehende elektrostatische Ladungen in den Boden, im Falle gestapelter Palettenbehälter in den Gitterkorb des nächstunteren Palettenbehälters, abzuleiten. Die Palette (1) besteht aus einem nichtleitenden Material, und an der Palette (1) ist eine der Erdung dienende elektrisch leitende Verbindung (9) zu einem an der Unterseite der Palette (1) vorgesehenen Kontakt (18) zur Bodenberührung und einem bei Stapelung des Palettenbehälters wirksamen Kontakt (20) zur Berührung des darunter befindlichen Gitterkorbes (3) eingerichtet. Dabei weist der Gitterkorb (3) selbst keinen Boden auf, und die Oberfläche der Palette (1) ist mindestens gitterförmig leitend gemacht, vorzugsweise mit einem leitenden Auftrag oder mit einem leitenden Belag (2) versehen, und ebenfalls mit der Einrichtung zur leitenden Verbindung (9;21;29;34;36) leitend verbunden. <IMAGE>
