Title

Prevent Electrical Failures with Switchgear Maintenance

Summary

Preventative maintenance increases the reliability of mechanically equipment and electrical switchgear is no different. Often ignored as part of overall maintenance plans, switchgear does fail unexpectedly with often disastrous results. These failures are easy to prevent with a few easy steps. Torquing cable connections, lubricating breaker mechanisms, and cleaning bus-work are just a few of many items that should be part of any preventative maintenance program.
