WHY DO YOU NEED AN ELECTRICAL PREVENTION MAINTENANCE PLAN?
An ignored electrical system can create an array of electrical risks like invisible aging of electrical parts, bad circuit breaker or faulty electrical wiring. The hazard ranges from damage of public electrical apparatus to serious property destruction and electrical fires, which leads to the destruction of your business space thus exposing you and your workers to danger.
Five Reasons to Perform Electrical Preventive Maintenance
Keep away from electrical shorts that can lead to fires: electrical short circuits can happen when wires are overwhelmed with current, wires are uncovered, and an imbalance of load occurs. This may lead to extreme heat buildup, arcing or explosions.
Spot components operating in contradiction to their specifications: wires, bearings, motors, and transformers can be fixed before they start malfunctioning. Projector maintenance technologies like laser alignment vibration analyses, infrared thermography and a general maintenance like the application of lubricant at intervals, can help prevent failure.
Prolong the functional lifecycle of assets: badly maintained assets need more energy to do the same amount of work. This leads to excessive wear and tear and a shortening of the assets useful lifecycle.
Avoid unplanned downtime: unexpected downtime can completely shut down the whole construction process, and this automatically means that a loss would be regarded.
How Often Should Electrical PM be done?
Electrical systems ought to have a detailed inspection by licensed professionals every 3-5 years. Single assets should be inspected according to the directions provided by the manufacturer or based on the industrial training available in that particular environment.
Sample Electrical PM Items:
Checking panel boards
Examining work orders as well as new installs for compliance and uniformity
Inspecting PLCs for effectiveness
Inspection of heating and cooling units
Making sure lock-out tags are in place
NEC code compliance
