Muilti purpose storage tank (for acetone, MEK, acetonitril,etc.) , filling from the top, in order to avoid static eletricity, we should apply a dip pipe or a J angle pipe?

Your intention should be to avoid free fall of hydrocarbon at high velocities in the tank which is the reason for static electricity generation.


Hope this clarifies your doubt.
