Arc Flash Study

Arc Flash is a dangerous condition associated with the release of energy caused by an electric arc and the main causes of Arc Flash will be thoroughly scrutinized by our dedicated team of experts caused by the following reasons:

  • Dust accumulation
  • Corrosion, Dirt contamination or Dielectric Breakdown
  • Faulty equipment
  • Poor maintenance
  • Tool dropped into an equipment
  • Careless removal or replacement cover and device
  • Entry of foreign bodies
  • Misalignment of moving contacts

The objective of our team at Samarth Safety is to prevent you from the following major Hazards of Arc Flash and giving you all-round solutions for it:

  • Severe burns
  • Blindness
  • Blast injuries
  • Shrapnel wounds
  • Lung blast injuries
  • Ruptured eardrums
  • Pressure wave injuries

The Scope of Arc Flash Studies under our surveillance at Samarth Safety will prevent you from:

  • The risk of personal injury as a result of exposure to incident energy from an electrical arc flash.
  • The incident energy evolved, safe flash protection boundary and PPE requirements as a function of location and work activity.
  • Further to provide designers and facility operators to apply in determining the arc-flash hazard distance and the incident energy to which employees could be exposed during their work on or near electrical equipment.

Our dedicated team of experts will conduct the Survey Methodology which includes:

  • Collect the system Installation and equipment data
  • Determine the power system’s modes of operation
  • Determine the bolted fault currents
  • Determine the arc fault currents
  • From the protective device characteristics, Find the Arcing Duration
  • Record the system voltages and equipment classes for each bus or arc hazard location
  • Determine the working distance
  • Determine the incident energy
  • Determine Flash protection boundary for all equipment.
  • Protective device coordination evaluation for bolted fault as well as arcing fault
  • Generate Arc Flash Hazard labels

Samarth Safety assures you quality and will provide you in this study with:

  • Arc flash labels
  • Incident energy values
  • What Arc Flash PPE electricians need
  • Working distance
  • Arc flash boundary & limits of approach
  • Shock hazards and the necessary equipment to prevent those hazards
  • An easy to read report with everything management and engineering will want to see
  • Recommendations on how to improve your numbers
  • Your Ideal Support Model

Further to this, The Samarth Safety’s experts’ team holds expertise in the field of engineering, design, and consulting services in this particular field of power system and Arc flash survey. The study is conducted according to the latest standards & norms followed around the globe with the help of the latest available technology and software.
