When you meet with Facility Results to undertake an electrical preventive maintenance program, we will work closely with your site supervisors and managers to determine the need for Scheduled or Predictive electrical maintenance and to set up a custom program for your facility.
Scheduled Electrical Maintenance
To ensure maximum performance and prevent unexpected production delays…
To ensure maximum performance and prevent unexpected production delays or extended downtimes, you want to ensure your electrical equipment is properly maintained. Regularly scheduled electrical maintenance and testing, whether based on equipment manufacturer recommendations or historical site experience, can actually save you dollars—and headaches—in the long run. We create a customized plan for electrical maintenance frequency based on your budget.
Facility Results offers energized and de-energized scheduled maintenance and testing services, including the following:
- Visual and mechanical circuit breaker inspections
- Thermographic inspection of all connections
- Ultrasonic surveys to identify pre-incident arcing, tracking, and corona
- Inspecting and cleaning electrical equipment
- Dielectric insulation certification
- Linkage and lubrication adjustments
Predictive Electrical Maintenance
Predictive electrical maintenance places more emphasis on predicting …
Predictive electrical maintenance places more emphasis on predicting when repairs are going to be needed rather than repairing equipment on a time-based schedule. Using predictive electrical maintenance practices based on NETA and NFPA 70B standards, the Facility Results team regularly assists our client companies in identifying problem areas before they lead to imminent or catastrophic failure.
Effective predictive electrical maintenance depends on highly trained personnel and state-of-the-art diagnostic monitoring equipment, and Facility Results has both. We use a combination of visual inspection, infrared diagnostic meters, and ultrasonic inspections to perform energized and de-energized testing. We create a customized predictive maintenance plan for each electrical system in your facility, based on equipment condition, environment, the need for reliability, and your budget.

Energized and De-energized Electrical Preventive Maintenance
Infrared Thermography Performed by Facility Results
Thermography detects thermal (i.e., infrared) energy not visible to the human eye. Facility Results’ Infrared Thermographer is Certified Level III and specializes in detecting thermal energy in electrical equipment. Using a state-of-the-art infrared camera combined with a visual inspection for discoloration, webbing/tracking, and burned insulation, our Thermographer can successfully locate bad connections, overloaded circuits, and overheating equipment before these can cause outages.

Ultrasonic Testing Performed by Facility Results
Ultrasonic testing enables our technician to hear arcing, tracking, or corona before these become severe enough for even an infrared camera to pick up. With our ultrasonic testing equipment we can detect anomalies between 15‒25 kHz.As an analysis method, ultrasonic testing is desirable for both its non-destructive and non-contact qualities in energized maintenance and testing.
Transformer Oil Gas Analysis Performed by Facility Results
Transformer Oil Gas Analysis (TOGA) is imperative for maintaining the internal health of transformers within your electrical system. By examining gases in transformer oil, we can first determine a baseline and then regularly test to detect combustible gases before they lead to a catastrophic failure. TOGA testing does not necessarily require de-energizing the transformer.
