Is your plant currently planning a Fall Outage? If so, don’t overlook including your electrical bus duct system in your plant’s outage maintenance plan. Routine preventative maintenance is not only a cost-effective way to extend the life of your electrical assets, it’s a critical task in minimizing the risk of a forced outage. EBI’s case studies have shown bus duct failures commonly occur due to cracked insulators, water intrusion, debris, dust/dirt build up, lack of proper silver plating, and loose/missing/inappropriate hardware. These issues can be detected and corrected with a proper inspection and maintenance plan. In this Project Spotlight we look back on a Spring Outage maintenance project that included offline cryogenic cleaning, inspection and many system enhancements to combat an underlying condensation issue our team discovered while onsite. There’s no substitute for experience. For more than 46 years, our thorough electrical asset life extension services have helped ensure the safe and efficient operation of our clients’ isolated phase, non-seg, segregated, and cable bus duct systems. If you are planning an upcoming outage, take advantage of scheduling a webinar with members of our technical team to discuss how we can put our expertise to work for you to guarantee you’re getting the most out of your critical electrical assets.
