Solutions to Optimize Your Operations
Protect Your Employees
Finding ways to protect your workers from dangerous incidents, like an arc flash, is paramount for your facility. Our arc flash and short circuit studies provide corrective actions for issues found on site. Once these steps are taken, your risk of arc flash is lowered and your equipment is safer to operate.
Our data collectors identify arc flash hazards and label them so your team and contract electricians know precisely what PPE they need to wear when working on energized equipment. We also conduct NFPA 70E training to inform your employees of the electrical hazards in the workplace.
Fix Code Violations
Did you know you could be operating with unidentified code violations that may lead to safety issues or unplanned downtime? While conducting your arc flash audit, our team keeps an eye out for apparent code violations that could lead to problems down the road.
Codes from NFPA and NEC were created to keep employees safe and your equipment running. Violations like working space, wire size, transformer protection, and underrated equipment may not be obvious to the everyday worker but can greatly affect your operations. Our experts will identify violations and help find solutions so you can operate your plant with peace of mind.
Enhance Equipment Reliability
Unreliable electrical equipment can lead to higher arc flash risk, short circuit failures, or a breaker tripping that kills power to your entire facility. Our short circuit analysis and protective device coordination ensure underrated electrical gear is identified and breakers are properly coordinated. We can also make breaker adjustments that keep the power distribution coordinated while lowering the arc flash hazard.
Our solutions help you avoid nuisance tripping and lead to a more reliable facility. You'll also find our reports have electrical distribution documentation that's helpful for future expansion projects.
Tailor the Study to Meet Your Needs
Each facility is different, so arc flash packages should be too. We offer three different power system study packages, from staying up to code to a long-term outlook. The Safety Package is our most popular option, but we'll work with you for the perfect fit.
