  1. What are the steps involved in Arc Flash Analysis? A. Arc Flash Hazard Analysis or Risk Assessment is a study conducted by trained safety experts to analyze electric equipment and power systems in order to predict the amount of incident energy from an arc flash. According to IEEE std 1584, there are 9 steps involved in this Arc Flash Analysis, which we are going to discuss here. Step 1: Collect the system’s installation data: The largest effort in an arc-flash hazard study is collecting the data from the site. Start by reviewing the one-line diagrams and electric equipment, site, and layout arrangement with people who are familiar with the site. The diagrams have to be updated to show the current system configuration and orientation before the arc-flash study starts. The one-line diagrams must have all alternate feeds. If SLDs are not ready, prepare them.              Once the diagrams are completed in the basic electric system scheme, enter  the data needed for the short

The Republic of Philippines, being one of the richest in Southeast Asia poses a great prospect for growing industries and emerging markets. With exemplary industries in Petrochemical, oil and gas, manufacturing and exporting of Electrical Machinery, Electrical Equipment, shipbuilding, Automotive manufacturing plants, Pharmaceuticals Electronics and Semi-Conductors as the mainstay the Republic of Philippines has a consistent growth paving the necessity of Electrical Engineering Services to be harbored. Equipped with experts team, VB Engineering provides several Engineering services, mainly Electrical Engineering.

                  

                                                           Arc Flash Accident

VB Engineering is a globally reputed electrical services company rendering its services mainly on Arc Flash Study. The Arc Flash safety is a very critical part of oil and gas especially. Arc Flash is a phenomenon of Flashover caused between the conductors when the air gap between them gets ionized resulting in an explosion releasing a large amount of heat that may bear severe consequences on the operating personnel as this heat can vaporize the metal and send a blast of plasma and molten metal in all directions. In the Republic of the Philippines where the main source of Electrical Energy is Geo-Thermal Energy such as Arc Flashes in the facility may result in a much higher degree of damage than anticipated.

 




The role of an Arc Flash Analysis is not underrated. We have offered our services to several industries at Kalayaan Ave., Quezon City, Bulacan, Makati City, Taguig City, Manila with considerably satisfied clients. Arc Flash Event may be caused by several reasons such as mistakes on the operating personnel side, operating conditions, maintenance of the switches, etc. To mitigate the Arc Flash, and the eventual damage to the equipment and harm entwined to the operating personal a periodic and systematic Arc Flash Analysis is essential.

 




Arc Flash Study Consultants and Arc Flash Companies in the Philippines are to carry out the Arc Flash Risk Assessment abiding by the OSHA Arc Flash Study requirements the Philippines. At VB Engineering we comply to the OSHA, NFPA 70E Regulations in the Arc FlashRisk Assessment with Arc Flash Study cost complying to the facility and the client. Arc Flash Study Cost is influenced by several factors such as the size of the facility, Electrical equipment involved, Data Collection, Incident Energy (IE) calculation, frequency of Arc Flash Occurrence, Necessity of training the operating personnel, and the like. We try to give as economic a solution as possible without compromising on the International Standards.

 

                                


Arc Flash Risk assessment is necessary in every industry in calculating the incident energy that may cause potential damage. VB Engineering is one of the few Arc Flash risk Assessment Companies in the Republic of Philippines. Our esteemed clientele across the Philippines in various cities like Caloocan, Davao City, Cebu have had Arc Flash Study conducted at their facilities and have undergone Arc Flash Training for the operating personnel, providing the required PPE, Hazard labels indicating the safety measures of the operation of various switches, safe operating distance, amount of incident energy calculated with the contemporary technology abiding with the national and international standards.Make your choice for Arc Flash Analysis companies in the Philippines. Contact VB Engineering for Arc Flash Study at your facility.
