Laboratory & JCI Electrostatic Instruments

Process Safety Laboratory and JCI Electrostatics Measurement Instrumentation

Process Safety Laboratory Instruments

Chilworth Global has supplied apparatus to industry and academic institutions since 1986. The instruments we supply, for measuring electrostatic, explosion and thermal stability properties, have a proven track record in industry - and their performance and reliability is validated by their use in our own laboratories.
For more info, visit our PS Laboratory Instruments pages and read our instrument brochure.

JCI Electrostatic Measurement and Consulting

Chilworth Global also design, develop and manufacture high quality instruments for electrostatic measurements under the JCI brand. Our highly acclaimed electrostatic charge decay analyser, the JCI 155v6 has recently been updated and we believe currently outperforms all others on the market today. JCI also offer consultancy and testing services and formal calibration of electrostatic measuring instruments to BS 7506: Part 2: 1996.

Ask the Experts

Finding the right instrument to provide relevant and appropriate test data for your process safety and eletrostatic needs is not always straightforward. Chilworth offers a free consultation to prospective buyers with one of our resident experts to ensure you purchase a cost effective solution to your equipment needs.


We also recognise that people developing their own process safety laboratory or electrostatics facilities may benefit from our knowledge and assistance. We can therefore provide training in instrument use to suit individual client requirements. This training can either be provided in our fully equipped process safety test laboratories or at our client's site.

Test Standards

All instrumentation is manufactured to comply with relevant national and international standards including BS, IEC, ASTM, VDI, DIN, UN and European Commission Packaging and Labelling standards, to name a few. In fact our consultant engineers frequently contribute to various standards committees, with an understanding of industry's needs gained from their consultancy activities.

Custom Manufacture

Chilworth also specialise in the custom manufacture of non-standard apparatus to either meet a client's specific in-house test requirements or to meet other bespoke test standards not covered by our normal instrument range.

Reliable and Dependable

We offer a complete international instrument supply service, supported by detailed documentation, efficient after-sales support and comprehensive equipment warranties to guarantee peace-of-mind in your purchase.
