Preventative Maintenance

Minimizing downtime is essential to keeping profits up and costs down. Proactive preventative maintenance of your electrical distribution and control systems can help to maximize equipment’s lifespans and minimize costly production downtime.

Infrared Scanning

High & Low Voltage

Machinery Upkeep

Health And Safety

Infrared Imaging Scans

Electrical Infrared thermograph imaging inspections are done proactively to spot problems before they happen and do not require any facility downtime.

High & Low Voltage Coverage

Testing and maintenance of your high voltage transformers is critical to ensuring the long term health and reliability.

Machinery Maintenance

We can design a customer preventative maintenance program designed around your specific equipment at either the single plant or corporate level.

INFRARED THERMOGRAPH INSPECTIONS​

spot problems before they happen

Infrared scanning spots problems before they happen by checking equipment for temperature ranges that exceed manufacturer recommendations. This allows maintenance to happen in a prioritized and planned way to reduce unwanted downtime.  These reports are also frequently request by insurance providers.

  • We do it while your plant is running; there is no production downtime or shut down needed. We recommend doing the scan during a peak production period such as summer time when the AC units are running.
  •  We can provide an electrician to open all the equipment for scanning; all our electricians and technicians have the proper Arc Flash training and safety gear (PPE) to conduct the scan safely
  • Everything is confidential; we do not release the data to anyone unless requested by you.
  • Equipment Control Panels: we can scan your production equipment control panels as well and spot issues on critical electrical parts like contactors, transformers, and terminals so an inexpensive part bring your production down
  • We scan all critical power distribution including your main incoming service, capacitor banks, transformers, MCC cabinets, circuit panels, and more.

High and Low Voltage Maintenance

Electrical Systems Maintenance

Every facility is different and with unique needs. We work with you to design a preventative maintenance programs including:

  • High Voltage Transformer Testing : oil and gas tests on high voltage transformers including standard ASTM tests, DGA, Water and power factor
  • High Voltage Transformer Maintenance: inspecting and cleaning, confirming torque, operation of all devices, TTR testing, resistance testing, and more
  • We handle coordination with the local utility for shut off of your substation when repairs or annual maintenance is required
  • Low resistance of critical circuit breakers prevents long term damage & minimizes energy waste and is usually applied to circuit breakers. 
  • Wire Insulation (Megger) testing and reporting spots wire deterioration on new or existing systems. 
  • General maintenance: insulation testing of primary low voltage cabling, cleaning, re-torquing checks, mechanically operating of switches, visual checks and more

Electrical Systems Maintenance

Every facility is different and with unique needs. We work with you to design a preventative maintenance programs including:

  • High Voltage Transformer Testing: We preform oil and gas tests on high voltage transformers including standard ASTM tests, DGA, Water and power factor
  • High Voltage Transformer Maintenance: We provide annual maintenance programs for your substation including inspecting and cleaning, confirming torque, operation of all devices, TTR testing, resistance testing, and more
  • We handle coordination with the local utility for shut off of your substation when repairs or annual maintenance is required
  • Low resistance of critical circuit breakers prevents long term damage & minimizes energy waste and is usually applied to circuit breakers. This test will indicate any restriction in current flow that might restrict a machine from generating its full power. Periodic testing can assess the internal condition of equipment and through trending can point to potential future failure.
  • Wire Insulation (Megger) testing and reporting spots wire deterioration on new or existing systems. This is usually done as part of a larger preventative maintenance package but can be done as needed such as testing of underground wiring you may be unsure about.
  • General maintenance: insulation testing of primary low voltage cabling, cleaning, re-torquing checks, mechanically operating of switches, visual checks and more

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE Programs

Equipment MAINTENANCE

Preventative maintenance on production equipment can greatly increase the long term reliability and effectiveness of the machinery. We work on your scheduled down time days including evenings and weekends so you never have to worry about lost production. 

  • Low Voltage Signal Monitoring
  • Harmonics and Power Logging Studies
  • PLC, HMI, and Other Control System Audits 
  • Cleaning
  • Infrared Scans
  • Profibus Predictive Scanning & Diagnosis
  • Temperature and Humidity Logging

Equipment MAINTENANCE

Preventative maintenance on production equipment can greatly increase the long term reliability and effectiveness of the machinery. We work on your scheduled down time days including evenings and weekends so you never have to worry about lost production. Some of the services that we offer include:

  • Low Voltage Signal Monitoring: Intermittent and nuisance issues can be difficult to pinpoint. Our testing instruments can log multiple signals at one time to help isolate where an issue could be coming from.
  • Harmonics and Power Logging Studies: Noise issues can be hard to diagnose and having the proper instruments is critical to isolating the issue.
  • PLC, HMI, and Other Control System Audits including backing up of programs and electrical documentation (e.g. schematics).
  • Cleaning: Control cabinet cleaning and tightening of connections.
  • Infrared Scans: Reporting & Analysis of Control Cabinets and LV Equipment. Our infrared cameras can pick up temperature issues in control cabinets such as over heating transformers, circuit breakers, and even loose connections.
  • Profibus Predictive Scanning & Diagnosis: We have the testing instruments to monitor and report on the health of a network and pin point connection deterioration. This allows manufactures to plan production downtime and take proactive steps to stop problems before they happen. We can also diagnose in emergency situations.
  • Temperature and Humidity Logging: Humidity can lead to condensation which can damage electrical instruments and excessive heat can cause components to fail. We can log data in any electrical cabinet and help stop issues before they happen.

health and safety

Safety is our number one priority. We are committed to ensuring the health and safety of every employee and to preforming all operations in a safe and effective manner. The safety of every employee is an integral component of our business practice and we recognize that accident prevention and quality of working life is an essential part of our business operations.
