Arc Flash Studies
Keeping your employees, equipment, and facility safe is absolutely vital in the industrial manufacturing world. This means ensuring that your electrical equipment is safe from short circuits and electrical faults as they can result in an arc flash. An arc flash not only poses serious risks for your facility, but it puts your employees in danger. With an arc flash study, FZ will ensure that you have the right PPE and safety precautions in place for your facility.
Reasons to Complete an Arc Flash Study
Ensure Compliance: Arc flash studies must be renewed every 5 years under OSHA and NFPA 70E. Additionally, numerous electrical codes may apply to your business, depending on its nature, operational needs, and location.
Keep your Team Safe: An arc flash study will help reduce or define hazards in your facility. It also creates a solid basis for qualifying onsite employees and indicating the right amount of PPE for them to wear while servicing equipment.
Protect your Business: Protect equipment and facility against loss of property, financial loss, and downtime with an arc flash study.
IR Thermography Reports
- An IR thermography report will detect the infrared energy of your electrical equipment and display an image of how heat is distributed
- The resulting report outlines your equipment’s electrical overloads, failures, and hazards as well as hot spots and poor connections
- A report will determine if troubleshooting or maintenance are needed for your electrical distribution system
- A study requires completion by a qualified specialist
Power Quality Study
Power systems are prone to fluctuations such as dips, swells, and outages, that when left unchecked can result in equipment damage and failure. A power quality study monitors these changes and provides you with actionable next steps you can take to mitigate potential issues. During a study, FZ will analyze and identify the power fluctuations and harmonic distortions occurring in your equipment. By pinpointing these issues and their causes, we’ll help improve the safety and efficiency of your plant floor.
How it Works
Our expert technicians start by hooking up a meter to your equipment. From there, we’re able to identity power anomalies and provide you with a report on how to remedy any issues that arise in the reading. In the end, you’ll have a deeper understanding of your power systems and an actionable plan on how to resolve any power quality issues.
