Required for Coordination Analysis Required for Arc Flash Analysis Required for Interrupting Rating Analysis
Site Assessment and Electrical System Data Gathering
Accurate, up-to-date information on the facility electrical system is absolutely essential to the arc flash hazard analysis Transformer Data - KVA, Voltages, Impedance Conductor Sizes and Lengths Fuse and Circuit Breaker Data Electric Utility - Available Capacity (minimum & maximum) Develop Accurate One-Line Diagrams Utilize data from Phase I to evaluate the power system, complete an Arc Flash Analysis using IEEE 1584 and NFPA 70E.
Protective Device Coordination Analysis
Determine “Total Clearing Time” at Given Fault Currents Required for Arc Flash Analysis
Interrupting Rating Analysis
Determine if protective devices have adequate interrupting capacity for the available short-circuit current
Arc Flash Hazard Analysis
Calculate Incident Energy (generally at 18” or 24”) Calculate Flash Boundary Determine Hazard/Risk Category Specify PPE Requirements
Recommend Solutions to Problems and Identify Opportunities
Coordination Problems Inadequate Interrupting Ratings Potentially Dangerous Arc Flash Energy Opportunities to Reduce Hazard/Risk Category Level
Electrically Safe Work Practices Program
Determine Policies on Electrically Safe Work Conditions Develop an Electrically Energized Work Permit Establish PPE Requirements Inside Shock Boundaries Determine PPE Clothing Policy
Appropriate PPE Requirements
Flame-Resistant Clothing Based on Hazard/Risk Voltage Rated Gloves Voltage Rated Tools
Apply Warning Labels to Specified Equipment Include Incident Energy, Hazard/Risk Category, Boundaries, and PPE

With increasing demands for cost reduction to remain competitive, many companies are expanding maintenance programs to include predictive and proactive technologies. One such technology is Infrared Thermography (Thermal Imaging). Used as a condition monitoring technique, thermal imaging enables users to identify potential areas of equipment failure and limit downtime. Decker Electric has the equipment and certified personnel to perform regular inspections that include scanning systems associated with critical assets - those whose failure would threaten people, property, or product. That way, you’ll have baseline images for comparison, which will help you determine whether or not a hot spot is unusual and requires repair as well as verify that repairs are successful. Our customers have realized a significant reduction in issues revealed by our Thermal Imaging Process. We can also scan roofs, steam traps, valves, gear boxes, drive couplings, drive shaft universals, belts, PLC cabinets, DCS cabinets, and motors.
