Burlington Electrical Testing


Infrared and Ultrasonic Inspection

neta

Burlington Electrical Testing Company has been providing infrared inspection services for the past 15 years using state of the art imaging systems and trained NETA certified technicians.

Burlington Electrical Testing Company uses FLIR Imaging System cameras utilizing the Irwin report writing software to expediously and efficiently produce a high quality report detailing all problems found, and can determine the level of severity and recommend repairs.

By using a NETA certified technician you can be assured that the Infrared Inspection is performed in a safe manner by a qualified technician who has the experience and training to identify problems and in some cases repair the problems before leaving the job site.

Infrared thermography can be applied in any situation where a problem or condition can reveal itself by means of a thermal difference. When inspecting the condition of electrical distribution equipment BET can “see” heat with an infrared camera. For example, sliding and bolted connections can become resistive through loosening, corrosion, etc.

Although the process sounds simple as pointing a camera, it often is not, due to the nature of heat transfer. Solid training and the BET technician’s experience is the key to the successful application of Infrared Scanning.

Infrared Thermography Scanning can:

  • Significantly reduce unscheduled power outages
  • Detect problems quickly, without interrupting service
  • Assess priorities for corrective action
  • Minimize preventive maintenance and troubleshooting time
  • Comply with insurance company requirements
  • Check for defective equipment while still under manufacturer warranty

Electrical Systems Applications:

  • Power Generation Inspections including Exciters, 4160 Connections, Motor Control Centers and Bus Ducts
  • Substation Electrical inspections including Switchgear, Breakers, Transformers and Capacitor Banks
  • Overhead Electrical Distribution Inspections
  • Electrical Motor Inspections
  • Battery Load Testing

 

NFPA 70E 2015
ARC FLASH HAZARDS

Is your site NFPA 2015 compliant? Is your staff "qualified" or "unqualified" to work on electrical equipment?

Burlington Electrical Testing conducts onsite Arc Flash Hazard Awareness training which provides an understanding of the federal laws (OSHA), potential dangers, as well as the accepted safety practices when personnel are to be exposed to electrical hazards.

This includes defining an arc flash and its effects on the human body, complying with Arc Flash labeling, and the selection and use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

The Arc Flash Hazard Awareness class is to be part of your overall electrical safety program; therefore, your staff will require a working knowledge of the electrical equipment at their facility, along with the tools, test equipment and available PPE.

The one day class is presented by an instructor certified by NFPA, and the NJACT / NECA to instruct Electrical Safety Related Work Practices based on NFPA70E 2015. Curriculum follows the accompanying Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices text modules and will focus on:

1. Electrical Safety Culture
2. Electrical Hazard Awareness
3. OSHA and NFPA 70E concepts
4. Electrical Safety Program
5. The Control of Hazardous Energy
6. Arc Flash Hazard Analysis
7. Personal Protective Equipment
8. Existing Electrical Equipment
