Get airborne (ultrasound) for electrical reliability • VIDEO

By Renée Francoeur

August 31, 2016 – Reduce arc flash AND create a safer inspection? That’s where airborne ultrasound comes in! WATCH THE RECORDING (above)*.

When apparatus such as switchgear, transformers, insulators or disconnects and splices fail, the results can be catastrophic. When left undetected, these conditions can become sources of an arc flash incident.

Arcing, tracking, corona? Nip them in the bud!

Ultrasound inspection may be performed on both open access and enclosed electrical equipment at all voltages, which is why CSA Z463 “Guideline on maintenance of electrical systems” suggests the technology for online testing.

Certified maintenance & reliability professional Sean Miller will show how airborne ultrasound can be used on open or enclosed systems to detect and analyze corona, tracking and arcing, and explain how airborne ultrasound and infrared thermography compliment each other and take your electrical maintenance and reliability program to the next level.
