Arc Flash University, Session 3: Infrared Windows and Infrared Inspection: Utilizing Infrared Windows to Mitigate Causes of Arc Flash
Thursday, December 20, 2012 at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT/11 a.m. PT
This presentation will give Health and Safety Directors, Electrical Supervisors and Electricians, Engineers, Maintenance Supervisors, and Thermographers alike a basic understanding of Arc Flash, the dangers associated with it, standards governing risk mitigation, training and prescribed PPE, the importance of an Infrared inspection Predictive Maintenance (PdM) program, technology to reduce the probability of an Arc Flash event, and the techniques to implement this technology. Many industries ranging from Petroleum and Chemical production and refining to Industrial/Manufacturing facilities, Offshore/Upstream, Commercial high rise buildings and hospitals adopted the Infrared Window as a viable way to reduce the probability of an Arc Flash event.
OEM window manufactures continue to provide advancement and development in Infrared Window technology. Coverage, size, placement and use are critical components to the implementation of a comprehensive installation project. Many
industries realize the far-reaching benefits of an Infrared inspection program combined with the use of the Infrared Window, and as a result the work place has and will continue to become a safer environment for those performing Infrared inspection as part of a proactive, cost saving PdM program.
