Arc Flash Hazards
A dangerous condition will be created with the release of energy caused by an Electric Arc. An Arc Flash Hazard Analysis will be performed by gathering up-to-date informations of equipment, then adetailed analysis will be done, which comprised of a data load-flow study or load flow analysis, short circuit study, and protective device coordination study or relay coordination study as well as an equipment evaluation to determine that the current withstand rating is acceptable.
What is Arc Flash Analysis ?
Arc flash analysis is a study for investigating a workers potential exposure, conducted for the purpose is to prevent injuries and the determination of the safe work practices at the work place and appropriate levels of PPE (Personal Protective Equipments).
Impact of Electric Arcs
Serious Injuries & Medical Costs Fractures, serious burns or even death. Equipment damage & Repair Cost Switchgear replacement suggestions in the electrical network, other gear in close proximity Production Loss of power, Considerable costs because of Lost Production and delayed deliveries OSHA Fines.

Arc Flash Hazard Studies
Arc Flash Hazard Studies comprises of load-flow study, short circuit study, protective device coordination study and arc flash risk assessment study. We also perform equipment evaluation study to determine acceptable withstand ratings. Performing arc flash risk assessment services and pasting the up-to-date warning labels on equipment will ensure the safety to the working people
Arc Flash consultants for commercial, complex Electrical fire accidents
Arc Flash accidents and electrical fire accidents in commercial complex can be prevented by performing arc flash studies by following the standards from NFPA, OSHA, IEEE.
Arc Flash Consultancy
NFPA 70E provides the guidance and tables required for electrical safety and fire protection system. IEEE 1584 provides formulae and algaritham for engineers in determining the arc flash Hazard boundary and incident energy. Industrial safety training is a prerequisite for the employees in any company .We at VB Engineering provide safety training for industries regarding the safety of employees working at energized equipment .In addition employees are also trained on usage of Personal Protective Equipment designed to protect against workplace hazards. In some situations the only available protection for employees will be PPE and often in emergencies, PPE will be required for the safety of the workers. All employees will be trained on usage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
