The transferring of flammable or combustible liquids from one vessel to another is a common practice in today’s workplace. Whether you transfer these liquids from a 55-gallon drum or a safety can, transfer them from a safety can to a cup, or to any other containment vessel for use on the job, dangers exist. It is important to understand that all flammable and combustible liquids have flash points. A Flash Point is defined as; The lowest temperature at which the vapor of a combustible liquid can be made to ignite momentarily in the air. Common flammable liquids have flash points below 100F (37.8C) and combustible liquids have flash points above 100F (37.8C). When transferring these dangerous liquids most operators understand that hot surfaces and open flames must not be present at the liquid transfer site. However, what many employers and employees alike do not realize is that with liquid transfer, Static Electricity will also cause flammable and combustible liquids to ignite and explode.
