Inspect Your Critical Electrical Equipment
How does your facility inspect your most critical electrical system assets like main switchgear, medium voltage switchgear, or other arc flash level “Dangerous” equipment if you cannot access the equipment while energized?
Most facilities we work with run into this scenario:
“We have been using infrared inspections to help us keep an eye on our critical equipment for years now. Since we last had our arc flash risk assessment performed, we can no longer access that equipment to inspect it with infrared thermography. Now how do we inspect our critical electrical equipment?”
In this case, the only two options are; (1) installing infrared windows during a scheduled shutdown or (2) performing an electrical airborne ultrasound inspection on that equipment.
Both options work and ideally both will be implemented together. However, when facilities don’t have the budget to install IR windows, we help them by performing electrical airborne ultrasound inspections on their equipment.
What is an Electrical Airborne Ultrasound Inspection?
An electrical airborne ultrasound inspection is a non-contact test method of inspecting critical electrical system equipment that cannot be opened safely to detect electrical corona, arcing, or tracking which can ultimately lead to equipment failure or an arc flash event.
