Need an Arc Flash Assessment? Don’t worry, Rozel is nearby. Our customers are located all over the country.
What is an arc flash study?
Everyone knows that electricity can shock you but in most industrial and commercial environments, electricity can also create a large explosion called an arc flash. Rozel determines how large an electrical arc flash could be, we help you identify what PPE to wear when working near the equipment and we train your employees to safely work around it. We also identify voltage which is critical when performing your shock risk assessment, as required by NFPA 70E.
A typical Arc Flach Evaluation consists of the following:
The characteristics of your electrical equipment determine the severity of hazards.
It all starts with the power entering your facility. Our workers collect utility information and details about your existing equipment. We obtain breaker part numbers, settings, fuse information, wire sizes, etc.
You hire us to do an arc flash survey, we do the data collection, you do your regular job.
One Line Drawings
During an Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, we create one line drawings for you!
The data we collect is entered in our software (we use EasyPower, SKM & ETAP). We must create one lines to do our job but then you can use them to troubleshoot in the future.
We can also create a formal drawing package for you, let us know if you’re interested.
Arc Flash & Shock Hazard Labeling
Our team applies the labels for you.
Labels will comply with the 2018 edition of NFPA 70E. Service equipment labels will include information to comply with 2017 NEC section 110.24 (available fault current). Voltage levels will also be included on these labels enabling you to perform both, a proper shock risk assessment and a proper flash risk assessment.
Arc Flash Mitigation / Arc Flash Reduction
After leaving your facility we keep working.
Our engineers examine your existing configuration and determine what can be completed to lower your hazards. Sometimes a simple breaker setting change is all that is required, other times you might need to replace fuses or breakers. We will prioritize recommendations to make it as easy as possible to determine your next step.
Ever wondered why a breaker trips when your motor starts? We look at that during an arc flash hazard evaluation too! Proper coordination ensures that breakers and fuses trip when you want them to. Your final report will outline any existing issues and have recommendations for fixing them.
Short Circuit Study
Your facility could have over 30,000 amps available from your utility. It’s an NEC requirement that all of your equipment is rated higher than what’s available at each location. Our engineers analyze this information and let you know how to fix any issues.
This is just another piece of information we include during your NFPA 70E Assessment. All of which help enable you to create a more complete NFPA 70E program and get your company in arc flash compliance.
Sometimes Rozel workers will open a majority of your panels during data collection. This is a great time for a deep discount on an IR scan. Learn more about our IR services by clicking on the button.
