TEGG System Analysis and Maintenance
Aschinger is a selected contractor of TEGG, an international alliance of electrical contractors protecting commercial and industrial facilities from electrical system failures and resulting business interruptions and property damage. TEGG contractors use system analysis tools such as infrared thermographic scanning.
The analysis we prepare addresses such issues as business interruption and personal safety risks; power quality; utility costs; surge suppression; and manufacturers’ recommended maintenance for specific pieces of equipment.
Aschinger can design a TEGG-guaranteed maintenance program for your facility.
Under a TEGG program, if we certify that an electrical component is in proper working order and it subsequently fails, it will be replaced free of charge.
Aschinger’s enrollment as a TEGG contractor requires an investment in state-of-the-art testing infrared, thermographic, and ultrasound equipment. It also requires a commitment to a program of TEGG-administered instruction and testing associated with electrical preventive maintenance programs. These include:
Voltage and Ampere Diagnostics
Power Factor Testing
Power Quality Analysis
Surge Protection Analysis
Repairs and upgrades of electrical distribution systems

Arc flash is a sudden, violent explosion that occurs when an electrical current leaps across a gap in damaged or worn equipment, or to nearby items or people. The results are often violent and when a human is in close proximity to the arc flash, serious injury and even death can occur.
With arc flash, what you don’t know CAN kill you. Arc flash incidents can impact both experienced maintenance personnel and to an employee or customer who is in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Aschinger identifies arc flash risks by reviewing:
Electrical maintenance procedures and frequencies
De-energized and energized maintenance procedures
Trending of maintenance data
Personal protective equipment requirements
A program is outlined that is specifically designed for your facility. Aschinger identifies and catalogs arc flash risks and recommends corrective measures.
Aschinger then can train your employees on procedures for working around and maintaining equipment that presents a risk. We can also recommend, source, and fit personal protective equipment to be used when servicing equipment that presents an arc flash risk.
Regardless of how safe your electrical gear was when it was originally installed, time and site conditions can compromise that safety. Even following manufacturers’ standards for equipment maintenance may miss potentially hazardous conditions.
The result can be arc flash or arc blast events and/or shock or electrocution risks. The National Fire Protection Association’s Standard 70B for recommended practices for preventative electrical maintenance, while not superseding manufacturers’ directives, seeks to minimize these risks.
Using visual inspection and infrared analysis Aschinger identifies risks, makes recommendations and performs the necessary maintenance to keep your facility safe.
An added benefit in older facilities is that Aschinger’s analysis process provides you with single-line diagrams and inventories of equipment that are not always readily available in once place.
The National Fire Protection Association’s standard 70E for electrical safety in the workplace has created an awareness of the hazards posed by workplace injuries and fatalities to shock, electrocution, arc flash and arc blast.
Aschinger has taken a proactive role in helping our customers identify and understand the hazards in their facility. We develop site-specific programs that include
Hazard identification and risk assessment,
Sourcing and fitting PPE,
Establishing safe workplace protocols, and
