Retrofitting of Low Voltage Circuit Breakers

neta

BET services all manufacturers’ breakers including ABB, Allis Chalmers, BBC, Cutler Hammer, Federal Pacific, General Electric (GE), ITE, Siemens, Square D, and Westinghouse.

Targeting facilities that have large power requirements and cannot easily shutdown for maintenance, Low Voltage Circuit Breakers can continuously and reliably handle heavy electrical loads for long periods of time. Therefore, these low voltage circuit breakers can be removed from an energized switchboard and be replaced or reinstalled without shutting off power.

Although older low voltage circuit breakers may be in good mechanical condition, the first generation overcurrent devices used on them may be obsolete, even unreliable, like oil dashpot devices. Older breakers can be repaired, reconditioned, remanufactured, or retrofitted.

BET can replace such out-dated components with state-of-the-art overcurrent devices that provide much more reliable and sophisticated protection.

 

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
