Elec­tri­cal – Haz­ardous ar­eas

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - EDITORIAL | CONTENTS -

Most com­mer­cial fires are the re­sult of an elec­tri­cal fault such as faulty wiring, over­loaded switch­boards, or just poor elec­tri­cal de­sign in the first place. A fire can be dev­as­tat­ing for a busi­ness in­clud­ing the loss of the busi­ness, jobs, in­come, wa­ter, or stock dam­age and at best in­ter­rup­tion.

Clark­son Elec­tri­cal owns an IR Ther­mal Imager. It works us­ing In­frared Tech­nol­ogy and mea­sur­ing tem­per­a­ture dif­fer­en­tials off your Elec­tri­cal Sys­tem and op­er­ates over a -10 to 300-de­gree range. Our Ther­mal Imager is used to:

• Iden­tify “hot spots” in your Elec­tri­cal Sys­tem

• For­mu­late pre­ven­ta­tive main­te­nance pro­grams

• Process Mon­i­tor­ing

• Re­search and De­vel­op­ment

• Heat­ing and Ven­ti­la­tion (HVAC) trou­ble shoot­ing

• On­go­ing Mon­i­tor­ing

• In­dus­trial / Com­mer­cial Elec­tri­cal – The main switch and ter­mi­nal – Dis­tri­bu­tion Boards – Ter­mi­nal Cham­ber – Con­trac­tor, over­loads and con­trol re­lays – Re­port made for each, com­plete with com­ments and rec­om­mended ac­tion. The most com­mon ap­pli­ca­tions are in the In­dus­trial and Com­mer­cial ar­eas to eval­u­ate the main Switch­board, Ter­mi­nals, Dis­tri­bu­tion Boards, Con­tac­tors, Over­loads, and Con­trol Re­lays.

Data Log­ging

Clark­son Elec­tri­cal has a Data Log­ging Ma­chine (Elite pro) which can be tem­po­rary con­nected to your elec­tri­cal sys­tem to mea­sure kwh, volt­age, cur­rent, watts, volt-amps-re­ac­tive, power fac­tor and har­mon­ics.

This en­ables us to:

• Iden­tify types of energy use for your busi­ness

• Iden­tify pat­terns and to­tal Elec­tri­cal Con­sump­tion

• Com­pile a re­port with com­ments and rec­om­mended ac­tion

• Po­ten­tially lower your elec­tri­cal up­grade costs

• Quote on elec­tri­cal ser­vice or in­stal­la­tion where ap­pro­pri­ate

• Test your Elec­tri­cal Sys­tem

• Com­pile a re­port with com­ments and rec­om­mended ac­tion

• Pro­vide quo­ta­tion for re­pair or re­place­ment if nec­es­sary The Ther­mal Imager can also be used in con­junc­tion with a Data Log­ger to get a com­plete pic­ture of your elec­tri­cal sys­tem and energy us­age.
