Understanding and Treating an Industrial Static Problem

Most people have encountered examples of static electricity from an early age.  Perhaps you have been shocked when grabbing a door handle or touching noses when you kiss someone.  Maybe you have seen sparks in your cat’s hair while petting him.  In school, you might have experimented by rubbing a balloon on your head and then watching your hair stand up as you lifted the balloon.  All of these examples follow the same principles of the generation and discharge of static electricity.
