    I work at a cannery so the static becomes a problem with us as well. The static bars are probably a good solution. We tend to have problems with our labeling centers. The cans are conveyed on plastic belts but somehow the cans gain the static charge. For a quick solution, we took wire we use to ground welders to discharge the static charge. I think this wire is #4 AWG finely stranded MTW. On a single filing point we cut a small amount of insulation away to create a brush affect on top of the cans. Then the other end we connected it to a grounding point.
