Power Generation

The power generation industry, including coal, natural gas, hydro, solar, wind and nuclear, has the some of the most vigorous electrical preventative maintenance requirements in the electrical maintenance industry. Certain critical systems, such as isophase and segmented busbar systems leave power generation industry extremely vulnerable due to inaccessibility issues. These systems are the only critical components that usually have no design redundancy. The internal components of isophase busbar systems are impossible to inspect under load because they do not have covers over each joint that can be easily removed. Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSDs) such as FlexIR range of product lines are extremely useful in helping asset owners identify issues before outages, allowing for more efficient outage planning and prioritization of needed repairs.

Marine, Maritime & Offshore

Electrical safety compliance for marine, maritime & offshore workers is a maze of regulations. In 2006, OSHA's Shipyard Employment clarified the importance of electrical safety for Maritime workers. This industry is also characterized by temperature extremes, high humidity, continuous vibration and high duty cycles. The IRISS family of Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSDs) includes the DNV, Lloyds & ABS certified, industrial-grade infrared (IR) windows that are capable of meeting OSHA's, SOLAS' (Safety of Life at Sea) and NFPA's standards for arc flash safety. All IRISS IR windows are compatible with all brands of thermal imaging cameras commonly used in the marine, maritime, and offshore environments to identify electrical and mechanical faults.

Critical
Infrastructure

One of the most common metrics for measuring efficiency in facilities that host data centers for financial, insurance and telecommunications facilities is a power usage effectiveness (PUE). Electrical distribution system losses account for 12% of the total energy consumed by the data center. In addition, unscheduled downtime in a data center is now estimated to cost over $8,000 per minute – not to mention the reputational damage to the data center company. One method for increasing reliability is to implement Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSDs) such as infrared windows, ultrasound ports, voltage detection ports and online monitoring to allow energized electrical maintenance tasks to be completed safely and efficiently.

Processing and Manufacturing

Processing plants and manufacturing facilities are realizing the failure of a critical electrical asset in a production line can add thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost productivity and wasted materials, even if the disturbance results in just a few minutes of downtime. Predictive and preventive maintenance tools are essential to monitor the condition of assets in real time to prevent such loss. Electrical safety compliance is equally critical. Many industry sub-segments are also characterized by temperature extremes, high humidity, continuous vibration and high duty cycles. The IRISS family of Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSDs) includes the industrial-grade infrared (IR) windows that are capable of meeting OSHA's and NFPA's standards for arc flash safety. All IRISS IR windows are compatible with all brands of thermal imaging cameras commonly used in processing plants and manufacturing facilities to identify electrical and mechanical faults.

Government

As an internationally recognized and government-approved equipment manufacturer, IRISS has supplied electrical maintenance solutions for local, state and federal entities. Power reliability and electrical safety compliance is essential for the success and stability of the government and its various programs. The IRISS family of Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSDs) includes industrial-grade infrared (IR) windows that are capable of meeting OSHA's and NFPA's standards for arc flash safety. All IRISS IR windows are compatible with all brands of thermal imaging cameras commonly used in government sector to identify electrical and mechanical faults.

Commercial

Electricity is essential for the operation and success of commercial buildings. Ease of Retrofit installation is equally important to green field construction and IRISS offers energy efficient and cost-saving solutions applicable for both scenarios. Electrical safety compliance for commercial electrical workers is a maze of regulations and challenges. The IRISS family of Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSDs) includes industrial-grade infrared (IR) windows that are capable of meeting OSHA's and NFPA's standards for arc flash safety. All IRISS IR windows are compatible with all brands of thermal imaging cameras commonly used in the commercial sector to identify electrical and mechanical fault.

Mining, Minerals and Metals

Mines provide the critical raw materials needed by our agricultural and manufacturing sectors. The first level metal processing facilities including ore processing, smelting operations, steel, copper and aluminum mills, and casting and forging facilities all use huge amounts of electricity to power the process equipment. The environmental conditions in these facilities can be severe and require robust equipment solutions. Airborne contaminants are always a concern and electrical infrastructure should be inspected at regular intervals. In addition, mining operations are governed by MSHA safety rules which are even more strict than OSHA guidelines.

Original Equipment Manufacture

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) must provide modern technology and solutions to ensure customer satisfaction, business growth and profitability in our rapidly growing, competitive market. Electrical safety compliance for workers is a maze of regulations. Additionally, electrical assets are affected by temperature extremes, high humidity, continuous vibration and high duty cycles. Customers count on the expertise of OEMs to provide the modern tools and resources available to extend the performance and lifespan of these critical high-value electrical assets. The IRISS family of Electrical Maintenance Safety Devices (EMSDs) have a long history of protecting the critical assets OEMs produce and include the industrial-grade infrared (IR) windows that are capable of meeting OSHA's and NFPA's standards for arc flash safety. All IRISS IR windows are compatible with all brands of thermal imaging cameras commonly used in to identify electrical and mechanical faults.
