THE QUESTION IS: HOW MUCH ARE YOU WILLING TO SPEND ON MAINTENANCE AND SERVICES ON YOUR SWITCHGEAR?
There are no second thoughts on the fact that with appropriate and regular maintenance, life of Switchgear increases. Switchgear directly affects the safety, reliability, and flexibility of an Electrical System.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
AGE OF YOUR SWITCHGEAR: This is the number one factor to be considered!
If your switchgear is brand new, working in perfect condition, it would be a good idea to invest in a Service and Maintenance plan.
CPS offers 1 year, 2 year, and 5 year Preventive Maintenance packages specific to individual customers. http://www.coastalpowersystems.com/circuit-breaker-repair/
This option will provide:
- longer life
- better performance
- economic benefits in the long run.
On the other hand, if the Switchgear is too old and giving poor performance, it’s time to invest in newer technology.
CPS as an OEM for many major manufacturers specializes in Switchgear, Retrofits, Retrofills, Relays, and any other necessary components to keep your gear up and running. http://www.coastalpowersystems.com/switchgear-enclosures/
TYPE OF SWITCHGEAR: The Maintenance and Service of Switchgear can vary in procedures used, as well as, economic benefits. This is because of the large quantity of different types available. For example, a VCB (Vacuum Circuit Breaker) will be easier to maintain but more expensive than OCB (Oil Circuit Breaker)
APPLICATION: What determines the type of application is the frequency of maintenance required. For example the Switchgear installed in a mining operation will have to be serviced more frequently as compared to the one installed in a commercial complex. We are available 24/7 for any questions or information you may need (281)-445-9280
ENVIRONMENT CONDITIONS: Also, the physical environment conditions like temperature, humidity, dust, etc. Are big factors on deciding the type of services and how frequent maintenance should be considered.
ELECTRICAL CONDITIONS: Its important to take into account the Voltage Level and Quality of Power that is in operation. One needs to factor in the duration of operation of switchgear, peak load and off-peak load conditions, fluctuations and their frequency etc.
Based on these factors, you now have a better idea on how to make a suitable choice on the type, frequency and procedure to Service and Maintenance your Switchgear.
