What Works: Arc flash On The Run In Pompano BeachI prefer articles that provide some detail about what was done to solve a particular problem. Today's online issue of Plant Services Magazine has a fairly good article that does this. It describes how Micro Typing Systems, Inc. addressed arc flash problems in their facility. The opening sentence of the article describes the problem:
"Aging equipment, an outdated electrical distribution system, and a facility originally designed for other purposes contributed to elevated arc flash incident energy values throughout the 20,000 sq. ft. facility of Pompano Beach, Fla.-based Micro Typing Systems, Inc. "
The goes on to describe what they did to reduce arc flash incident energy levels and ensure both their staff and contractors were properly protected from arc flash.
