Arc Flash Hazards

Many Arc Flash incidents are caused by workers servicing energized electrical equipment. With flammable vapors, volatile liquids, and explosive gasses, Arc Flash has the potential to trigger a catastrophic event. Arc Flash danger is present throughout oil and gas facilities.

What is Arc Flash ?

In Oil Rigs Fuel and storage tanks, propane gas cylinder processing facilities, frack tanks, fueling operations, and natural gas pipelines are among the equipment and facilities are identified as risks for fire and explosion caused by static electric discharge. Arc flash or electrical hazard analysis is conducted at your facility by our expert team as per the OSHA, NFPA 70E 2015, IEEE 1584 and NEC 2014 standards.
