NFPA 70B / Electrical Maintenance

NFPA 70B

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.

Energized Electrical Testing & Maintenance

NFPA 70B

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:

  • Infrared Thermography
  • Ultrasonic Testing
  • Voltage and Ampere Diagnostics
  • Power Factor Testing
  • Proper Torquing
  • Power Quality Analysis
  • Surge Protection Analysis
  • Repairs and upgrades of electrical distribution systems
