An Arc Flash is a very serious and dangerous condition that transpires when electrical energy is released into the air as it passes through a gap between two electrodes. The resulting explosion can produce a tremendous amount of energy and heat that could lead to very severe injuries or even death.
It is estimated that 53% of injuries and fatalities reported amongst electricians are the result of an arc flash. Causes can include:
- Deteriorating equipment
- Improper installations
- Dust, corrosion and debris
- An accidental or improper connection of tools
Limiting risk today means protecting your valuable assets tomorrow
Our team of highly skilled and qualified electrical engineers will conduct a detailed and thorough power system analysis to determine the potential of an arc fault occurrence and how to minimize or eliminate this risk.
Not only will you be protecting your equipment and employees, you will also reduce the risk of lengthy downtime and messy legal battles.
Taking away the guesswork
The report delivered after analysis is used to calculate incident energy and outline the potential risks, procedures and limits identified by the NFPA, IEEE and ANSI. The use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and labels required to identify potential hazards related to your electrical equipment will also be recommended.
