Industrial electrical equipment is always on the move, toiling day in and day out to enhance productivity. In the wake of rampant work maximization, old faithful devices without proper maintenance guidelines are headed towards wear and tear. We are not just highlighting existing components, but the newly installed ones too. Electrical components and control panels bearing the excessive workload, tend to be expensive. In order to max out productivity without scratching the protection on your electrical main distribution panels, we have pieced together a few essential maintenance tips that can help you make the most of your industrial equipment.
- Internal cooling
Studies say more than 55% of electrical equipment damage we come across is due to the fluctuating temperature within the components. Electricals working round the clock tend to generate a lot of heat, which needs an immediate outlet. Installing a cooling fan inside the cabinet with filters to push out the heat can help keep your electrical control panel box cool, calm, and running without interruption.
- Remove junk
why plague your electrical panels with unnecessary debris and old, dilapidated accessory parts? Electrical components are fragile to dirt, dust, and debris and hence, as a part of the maintenance process, servicing organizations are breaking down cleanliness guidelines for all industrial electrical fittings. From cleaning the nooks and crannies with compressed air to cleaning our unnecessary papers, used parts, and debris to avoid fire or short circuit – every minute detail matters.
Electrical control panels can range high and low, big and small, and simple and complex, based on your industrial needs. However, regardless of size, type, and working module, all electrical panels risk wear and tear through the course of usage and that’s why professional inspections on a periodic basis have become crucial these days. You don’t want to incur extra investment because of an overlooked loose wire or a brittle component. Electrical panel servicing companies specializing in maintenance and supply of component accessories, can periodically check, repair, and maintain your panels for you.
From distribution panels to switch breakers, terminators, and even the tricky fuses- sourcing quality components and accessories has always been an added advantage. However, even the best of the components can die down under neglect and hence, a comprehensive servicing and maintenance plan should be at the top of the priority list.
