The Risk

All electrical equipment begins a normal process of deterioration immediately after installation. Unchecked, this deterioration can cause malfunction or electrical failure. A hostile environment, overload, or severe duty accelerates this deterioration.

Deterioration is only one cause of malfunction and failure. These hazards can also follow load changes or additions, circuit alterations, improperly set or selected protective devices, or changing voltage conditions.

Whatever the cause, the end results are the same: compromised safety, lost production, abnormally high usage, and costly repairs. Think about your facility: the equipment, the people, and the investment in raw materials and processes. Can you afford the risk?

The Problematic Solution

Fortunately, there's an easy way to eliminate these hazards: effective preventative maintenance. Unfortunately, effective preventative maintenance isn't that easy. While the value of preventative maintenance is undisputed, few companies possess the necessary expertise and resources to plan and implement an effective program:

  • Most maintenance teams are trained in problem solving ... not routine inspection and prevention.
  • Few maintenance teams have the tools, knowledge, or time to perform comprehensive inspection, testing, and analysis.
  • Even with the necessary staff and resources, implementing an effective in-house preventative maintenance program is often not feasible or cost-effective.

The True Solution

Electrex Industrial Solutions, southeastern Michigan's premier commercial and industrial electrical service company for 60 years, provides comprehensive and cost-effective Preventative Maintenance Service Programs. Customers from small shops to major industrial facilities depend on us to monitor and maintain their primary service, welding service, and general electric service. They understand the value and peace of mind that results from our electrical expertise and experience working for them.

The Approach

Round-the-clock production or one shift; multi-week, hundred-thousand dollar batches or costly, precision, single parts; regulatory demands for controlled environments or cavernous facilities hosting a multitude of manufacturing. Your unique processes require a particular approach. Thus, our electrical maintenance professionals work with you to design a program that keeps your vital processes uninterrupted, and your personnel and facility investment safe.

Depending on your particular needs, our service experts will make regularly scheduled visits to your facility to inspect and maintain your electrical systems and equipment including switchgear, panel boards, and capacitors. The service includes:

  • Visual inspection for loose connections, cooling oil leaks, corrosion, and physical damage.
  • Measurement or evaluation of critical parameters such as temperature, humidity, and ventilation.
  • Testing of services, disconnects, and floating power correction capacitors for proper loading.
  • Infrared thermographic scans to non-evasively identify dangerous hot spots.
  • Cleaning of dust and debris from inside all services and switchgear.
  • Lubrication of moving parts.
  • Tightening of loose connections.
  • Evaluation of compliance to code.
  • Review of electric bills to identify energy over-use and rate codes relevant to usage.
  • Analysis of inspection, testing findings and review.
  • Recommendations for problem resolution or system enhancement.

Infrared Thermographic Inspection is Critical

Infrared thermographic inspection is a critical component of our PMSP. Our certified infrared thermographers use the latest infrared technology to capture and interpret thermographs of electrical equipment. Infrared images (thermo graphs) expose once-invisible problems. Dangerous trends and unsafe conditions are detected before they can cause serious damage. With our expertise in thermography, we make accurate assessments of infrared images revealing hot spots and offer recommendations for the prompt resolution of problems. Problems that could lead to service disruptions, expensive equipment failures, or even fire, are averted. Infrared thermography gives us an edge in problem detection and safeguards your facility, equipment, and workforce.

Fundamental to the preventative maintenance service program, we tailor to your requirements a comprehensive checklist. Developed through years of experience, these documents guide our skilled electrical maintenance professionals through a comprehensive evaluation, assuring that no maintenance or inspection detail is overlooked.

Our Comprehensive Preventative Maintenance Service Program offers the following services:

  1. Visual inspection to look for worn or damaged electrical equipment
  2. Inspect equipment for loose connections, burnt wires, discolored copper, aluminum bars, as well as, foreign matter and debris.
  3. Test power quality, check for proper amperage readings, as well as, overload conditions on all electrical components.
  4. Check for "Hot Spots" which can cause fire and equipment failure using advanced infrared technology by a certified Electrex Thermographer.
  5. Inspect high-voltage terminations and equipment. Inspect transformers for oil leaks and provide oil analysis.
  6. Check and test power correction capacitors for proper operation.
  7. Verify that electrical components satisfy manufacturer specifications.
  8. Inspect for safety and National Electric Code (N.E.C.) violations.
  9. Analyze your electrical bills for money saving options.
  10. Provide a detailed, illustrated, written report.

The Results

Safety, protection of personnel and equipment, risk minimization, maximized energy efficiency, insurance company rebates ... the benefits of the Electrex Industrial Solutions Preventative Maintenance Service Program are undeniable.

The actual savings our service will provide for you is incalculable ... how do you quantify peace of mind?
