All refueling machines and refueling islands under the canopy, tank areas where oil products are stored, business rooms and ancillary facilities, power distribution rooms, or generator rooms are flammable and explosive areas, and fire and smoking bans must be strictly implemented.
In terms of anti-static, oil tanks, oil pipelines, and tanker equipment should be grounded and bridged. It is strictly forbidden to use plastic buckets to fill light oil products. The sampler’s lifting rope must be made of pure cotton and added with special static conductive thin wires. When unloading oil from a tank truck, a special grounding device must be used and good grounding must be maintained.
