Arc Flash Studies
Arc Flash Analysis and Hazard Assessment
We provide a comprehensive arc flash study including full on-site evaluation, modeling, analysis drawing, fault current and coordination studies.
Our qualified NFPA 70E, IEEE-registered experts can perform a detailed inspection of your plant or facility, regardless of size or location throughout North America. We offer a wide variety of arc flash and electrical hazard studies, including:
Our engineers are all members of IEEE, the organization setting the standards for arc flash studies. We use SKM Power Tools, ArcPro, and other software packages to give the best, most accurate results.
Frequently Asked Questions
The cost of an Arc Flash Study depends on a variety of factors, including type of facility (i.e., manufacturing, hospital, warehouse, etc.), size of the facility, amount of electrical equipment, electrical services into the facility, availability of data, location, age of the equipment, and more.
Companies can help reduce the cost of an arc flash study. Those facilities that have the following in place will have the most efficient, cost-effective study:
- A good one-line diagram
- Their own electricians available to assist in gathering data
- Updated equipment
- Maintenance records for the equipment
This varies according to several factors such as: the size of your facility, the amount of equipment that needs labeling and how quickly you are able to provide us with information about your work location.
The amount an arc flash study can cost is going to vary per facility. Square footage and equipment that needs labeling are major factors that go into giving an accurate price.
Any time you get a new piece of equipment or after 5 years.
An arc flash hazard analysis is just another name for an arc flash study. They are interchangeable with one another.
e-Hazard primarily uses SKM Power Tools for our arc flash calculations. Our experts are experienced in using this software as a tool to perform arc flash hazard calculations that provide you with the most accurate information.
Yes, We already have engineers that are registered PE’s in the following states:
- New Jersey
- New York
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
Most other states will allow us to apply for a license. However, this process can take a few months, contact us for details.
e-Hazard provides unique arc flash study services, with these two important advantages:
- We use an electrical engineer from start to finish.
- You will have one electrical engineer dedicated to your project from start to finish. This expert will visit your site to collect data, complete the modeling, and return to label the equipment. We have found that this consistency helps to provide our clients with the most accurate study.
We will give you all the files from your study, including the SKM Power*Tools or EasyPower files. When you need to update your study in the future, you will have the files needed to make the updates, whether by us or another firm. Make sure any firm you select to do your study will provide you with these files.
Arc Flash Study Resources
e-Hazard arc flash studies (or arc flash or hazard analysis) are conducted at your facility by one of our trained experts, qualified to evaluate your electrical system. Studies can be customized to include fault current and coordination analysis, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Level recommendations, Arc Flash Equipment Labeling and more according to your specific situation. Notes and recommendations are given for areas presenting risk to personnel or equipment.
