De-energised electrical testing is the final step in Eccentricity’s Preventative Maintenance Program, and is again incredibly important to the safety and welfare of any business’ electrical equipment. Although it is believed by some that thermography and energised testing show all faults, this is not always the case - which is why Eccentricity have included de-energised electrical testing as a compulsory component in our Program. Give us a call for further information.
Following the completion of both thermography and energized testing, it is important to also schedule time to shutdown power and perform de-energised maintenance on various pieces of equipment. Thermography and energised testing alone will not pick up every potential fault that may arise in your electrical equipment but, by shutting the power off Eccentricity can clean, inspect and service equipment to ensure its safety and reliability.
By including de-energized electrical testing and verification methods in our Preventative Maintenance Program, Eccentricity can verify the condition of your assets which gives you an accurate overview of the condition of your entire system.
Some inspections and testing include:
· Switchgear inspection and testing (Ring Main Units & Switchboards).
· Circuit breaker servicing and testing.
· Relay circuit protection verification.
· Cable termination inspections.
· Power transformer testing and dissolved gas analysis.
· Switchroom/substation inspections and cleaning.
· CT & VT verification testing.
· Earth grid verification testing.
· RCD (Safety Switch) verification testing.
And so much more - if there is a specific component you would like to know more about, or would like something else included, give Eccentricity a call and we can discuss your maintenance needs today.
The de-energized component of maintenance can be the most critical in a PReventative Maintenance Program, as it always picks up abnormalities that thermography and energized testing alone can not.
Additionally, the lifespan of your electrical equipment can be maintained by regular servicing and cleaning performed during de-energised maintenance, as well as being a great opportunity to perform rectification works on problems that have been detected previously by thermography and energized testing.
When you fail to schedule maintenance, your equipment will schedule it for you, usually at an inconvenient time. If you require assistance to manage your electrical assets, give Eccentricity a ring to see how we can help.
