Premium Industrial Electrical Services

Keeping your industrial electrical system maintained goes a long way in protecting your business, which is why electrical safety inspections are so important.

Some industrial facilities may have electrical systems, wiring and equipment that is out of date. During an industrial electrical inspection, our professionals will be able to determine what technologies need updates to get up to code and provide solutions for modern standards.

.

A periodic industrial electrical inspection will:

  • Reveal any overloaded electrical circuits or equipment.
  • Identify any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards.
  • Highlight any lack of grounding or bonding.
  • Testing of safety related circuits and devices.

Protecting Your Investment By Doing Preventative Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is a systematic industrial electrical inspection of equipment, systems, and operational processes in order to determine potential problems. Correcting issues before an electrical failure happens can eliminate downtime, keep workers safe, and protect expensive assets.

Our qualified technicians are properly trained and perform appropriate maintenance and testing on industrial equipment, systems and processes.

Some of the things that our technicians cover during a preventative maintenance program include:

  • Creating accurate and complete reports 
  • Wire termination torque inspections
  • Thermalgraphic imaging inspections
  • Adhering to proper electrical codes and standards
  • Making informed decisions about issues, and communicating appropriate remedies
  • Using expertise for modern technology solutions

Electrical preventive maintenance is a cost-effective way to prolong the life of equipment, avoid costly repairs, and potential serious injury of employees. These programs can also improve the efficiency of industrial processes, reduce energy consumption, and lower expenses.

Does Downtime Hurt Your Bottom Line?

Unneeded downtime doesn’t only affect operations, but it can cause a disruption to other jobs by pulling resources to fix the problem. By taking advantage of planned maintenance schedules, problems can be corrected by qualified and unrushed technicians.

In order to target the appropriate electrical systems, technicians utilize a number of industrial electrical inspections.

1. Industrial Ground Testing Services

Grounding of electrical equipment protects personnel and equipment from overloads, faults, and lightning storms. By providing a solid reference to earth, your system is provided with a safe means of voltage stability.

Industrial ground testing services to verify the integrity of the grounding system are essential for the safety of workforces, assets and overall operation. Monitoring electrical systems and fixing trouble areas can help avoid disaster, downtime and injury.

2. Thermal Imaging

Infrared industrial electrical inspections find hot spots caused by defects in connections and components, overloaded electrical circuits. Infrared thermal imaging is used to find areas of excess heat so that problems can be corrected before a component fails, creates safety hazards, or causes industrial operations to stop.

Thermal imaging is the best non-invasive and safest diagnostic tools available for finding hot connections in the early stages of degeneration. Thermal imaging helps to find and prevent problems before they cause damage to personnel, equipment and facility systems.

3. Maintenance Contracts and Programs

Electrical Elite has trained personnel to provide preventative maintenance and service contracts on equipment and electrical systems for industrial facilities. Since industrial equipment is costly to repair, preventing large-scale breakdowns with simple maintenance schedules can eliminate downtime and save businesses money.

4. Efficient Energy Management Systems

According to Natural Resource Canada, industrial energy systems such as combustion, process heating, combined heat and power, compressed air, motors, pumps and fans, account for approximately 80% of all energy used by industry. On average, 30% to 40% of that energy is lost.

Energy-efficient management systems can help reduce and recover this lost energy, thereby lowering production costs as well as their need for fossil fuels. These programs also aid in mitigating the threat of global warming by reducing the GHGs emitted by industrial processes.

Industrial Fire Alarm and Life Safety Systems

The requirement to commission integrated fire protection and life safety systems of industrial buildings was originally placed into the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) in 2010.

Although the standards are outlined in the code, having fully trained and experienced technicians and partners for commissioning is necessary for implementing proper systems.

Industrial Fire Alarm and Life Safety System Service

While electrical designers show fire alarm, life safety systems and appropriate interlocks in their design, electrical contractors install and interconnect these systems to ensure that the safety and performance requirements of applicable codes are not compromised. At Electrical Elite, our technicians work alongside commissioning agencies to install, test and maintain safety systems in accordance with designers and building codes.

Installation of Emergency Lights, Smoke Detectors, and Fire Alarms

At Electrical Elite, we’re able to offer comprehensive life safety systems that include emergency lighting and fire alarms systems.  A properly functioning life safety system is critical to protect your property and assets, but more importantly, to protect people’s lives.

Regular Testing of Fire Alarm and Life Safety Systems

Industrial building owners are responsible for verifying that fire protection and life safety systems are functioning according to the intent of their design. With Electrical Elite, our technicians and partners offer comprehensive service capabilities, that will ensure your fire alarm and life safety systems are in proper working condition and in full compliance with provincial and national standards. .

Offering 24/7 Emergency Electrical Service

Ignoring electrical issues may not only violate building codes, but it could result in fines or shutdowns. While some electrical issues might not seem like a big deal, any inconsistency with your industrial electrical system can indicate a serious safety concern.

At Electrical Elite, we understand the inconvenience, danger, and lost productivity that can result from an electrical emergency. That’s why we offer 24-hour emergency electrical services performed by our experienced, licensed technicians.

Examples of emergency industrial service situations include:

  • Internal floods and leaks around electrical equipment.
  • Arcing and smoking originating from electrical panel boxes or equipment.
  • Flickering, buzzing or dimmed lights.
  • Tripping breakers or electric shocks.
  • Odd smells from electrical devices, such as outlets and switches.
