How to avoid the generation of static electricity?

How is static electricity generated? What is the reason to avoid the generation of static electricity? Let's take a look at the specific explanations of the professionals of Lianfeng Electrostatic Generator below.

Any substance is composed of atoms, and the basic structure of atoms is protons, neutrons and electrons.

The proton is defined as positive, the neutron is not charged, and the electron is negatively charged. Under normal conditions, the number of protons of an atom is the same as the number of electrons, and it is positively and negatively balanced, so it shows an uncharged phenomenon.

In some cases, static electricity can also be generated without friction, such as induction of electrostatic electrification, thermoelectric and piezoelectric electrification, Helmholtz layer, and jet electrification. Any two objects of different materials can be separated by contact, and static electricity can be generated. The common method of generating static electricity is to generate electricity by friction.

The better the insulation of the material, the easier it is to generate static electricity. Because air is also made up of atoms, it can be said that static electricity can be generated at any time and anywhere in people's lives.

So how do you avoid static electricity?

1, inhibit the electrification method. Mainly from the root cause of static electricity, reduce the possibility of frictional electrification. For example, increase the air temperature, use materials that are not easy to electrify.

2, shielding method. The equipotential housing is used to enclose the protected object so that the internal objects also have equal potential and are not affected by external electrostatic discharge.

3, grounding method. The surface of the antistatic object is equipotential with the ground through a ground connection, so that the electrostatic charge generated by friction or induction is discharged to the earth through the electrostatic ground.
