Partial Discharge is the first step in equipment failure- a low energy electrical activity that weakens protective insulation materials and causes very serious problems in your facility. Basically, it's a tiny electrical discharge that doesn't quite make it between two different potentials. Although each discharge is small, they are localized and can happen many times per second. Over time, insulation weakens to the point of failure, causing 85% of equipment failures, fire, arc flash, injury, and even death.
MEC's NETA certified technicians can perform PD testing when your plant is online, to help diagnose potential problems in preparation for normal maintenance shutdowns.
