"Safely grounded" since 1963. TIMM is synonymous with the highest safety, latest technology and "Made in Germany" quality in explosion protection and, since 2017, renewable energies. Our monitored grounding systems protect people, the environment and plant facilities worldwide when loading and unloading flammable liquids and bulk materials. TIMM has grounding solutions for tanker trucks and wagons, bulk transporters, containers, IBCs and big bags. Our overfill prevention controller for bottom loading has been awarded the Tank Storage Award. TIMM is the world market leader with the monitored SEK-3 marine grounding system for equipotential bonding. TIMM's specially developed intelligent explosion protection concept (IEPC) enables easy commissioning and maintenance of the devices while complying with the highest safety standards. With IntelliLock, we provide increased security, control and transparency for access to wind turbines.

DO YOU FILL OR EMPTY TANK TRUCKS, SILO TRUCKS OR RAILWAY WAGONS? During loading and unloading inflammable liquids or solids an explosive gas and dust atmosphere may arise – a single spark can be sufficient to initiate an explosion. To prevent this, the occurring electrostatic charges must be discharged safely. TIMM’s Grounding Control Devices ensure static electricity is discharged to the ground by a grounding cable and continuously monitor the grounding quality. If there is an interruption of the grounding connection, the filling process will be interrupted immediately.


The danger of electrostatic charges must always be observed when loading, unloading or handling bulk solids or inflammable liquids in the petrochemical, chemical, gas, as well as in the food and feed industry. For application with containers, IBCs, barrels or trays, the EKX-4 (2-pole) is the Grounding Control Device to choose. APPLICATION AREAS: EKX-4 (2-pole) is mounted stationary, close to the loading/unloading gantry. It is used in gas and dust hazardous areas of zone 1 and 21 for objects to be grounded, that cannot be detected by the standard 1-pole Grounding Control Device EKX-4 such as containers, IBCs or barrels. Further areas of application are the grounding of materials handled with trays on conveyors in automated industrial processes.


- For use during loading and unloading of tank trucks, silo trucks and rail tank cars - Controlled derivation of the static electricity - Use in gas and dust hazardous areas of zone 1 (equipment category II 2 G) and 21 (II 2 D) - Immediate interruption of the loading operation when unsafe grounding connection consists - EAC Ex approval according to the currently relevant TR-CU 012/2011 regulation


DO YOU FILL OR EMPTY BIG BAGS? Please remember that many dusts in conjunction with air have a high risk of explosion. Flours, sugars or aluminum dusts are well known as an explosion hazard. But even the dust of products such as fertilizers, rubber, tobacco, spices and many other substances can cause explosions. Therefore, when processing such products, conductive big bags must be used. Grounding is required for these types of big bags to prevent ignition due to electrostatic charges. PRODUCT BENEFITS * For all FIBC type C according to IEC 61340-4-4 (10^7 Ω and 10^8 Ω) * Tamper-proof through digital measurement technology and automatic object recognition * Simultaneous monitoring of two big bags * Relay and NAMUR control outputs * Autodiagnosis system for permanent self-monitoring of all safety-related functions * Easy handling thanks to cable quick couplings and the integrated plain text display * Mounting the main unit at a distance of up to 20m from the workplace poss
