Annual switchgear inspections and switchgear maintenance schedules can be performed on all types of H.V. and L.V. equipment, including H.V. pressure testing, primary and secondary injection, infra-red thermographic surveys and insulating oil sample testing.
A 24-hour call-out service, consultancy, technical advice and facilities management of H.V. rings, controls and associated L.V. equipment completes the professional package.
Other switchgear services include on-site investigation, emergency repair and site surveys.
Burtonwood Generator & Switchgear Services (BGSS) has been working with clients across a wide variety of industries to provide planned switchgear maintenance programmes designed to prevent power loss and ensure that standby power is readily available.
The company also has the expertise to meet all HV & LV diesel generator and switchgear requirements including the procurement and installation of new diesel generator sets, critical switchgear components or manufacturer recommended spare parts.
The safety and reliability of electrical switchgear equipment installed in public buildings throughout the UK is often overlooked with circuit breakers, for instance, providing the backbone of power distribution infrastructure.
BGSS have wide experience of dealing with this type of switchgear equipment and recognise the vital role that reliable circuit breakers can play in maintaining continuous power supply.
The company is pleased to announce a new working partnership with US-based ETC Technologies, best known as the leading manufacturer of replacement digital solid state trip units designed to extend the life of power circuit breakers. BGSS will act as a master distributor and certified installer for ETC for its Satin American etc-12 Q series trip units.
The satinAMERICAN trip unit is a direct replacement for the Merlin Gerin STR trip unit found in many circuit breakers installed in buildings throughout the UK. As these units age operators can experience sporadic breaker trips resulting in costly down time when a site is least expecting it.
By installing a Satin American etc-12 Q series trip unit, as a direct replacement for the existing equipment, the operator can achieve a cost effective solution to its power outages in a timely manner and with the minimum of disruption to business. The etc-12 Q series trip unit can be fitted quickly and uses the same plug type and format as the original equipment making it a very economical alternative to replacing the whole breaker.
