What causes static electricity during abrasive blasting? What risk does it pose, and how can it be controlled?

Selected Answers

From Jonathan Rausch of That's private on January 4, 2020:
Dry air/low dew point is a cause. A proper ground should help.

From rahul choyyappurath of cape east on February 23, 2019:
Continuous vibration on carbon-impregnated hose causes static electricity.  It will affect the blaster and may cause severe injury to the person or nearby equipment. The best way to avoid static electricity is to ground the blasting hose.
