NFPA 70B / Electrical Maintenance
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.
