ONLINE BUS DUCT SYSTEM TESTING

EMSA Testing

RMS Energy can perform EMSA (Electromagnetic Signature Analysis) testing to locate electrical partial discharge and arcing, loose connections, and broken insulators while online.
 

IR Inspection

Thermography can be performed to locate any potential heating issues and circulating ground currents in your bus duct system.

Visual Inspection

Visual inspection of the bus system exterior is performed to determine general condition and locate areas of concern for future inspection.

OFFLINE BUS DUCT SYSTEM TESTING

General Condition Assessment (Level 1)

A condition assessment inspection is a minimally invasive inspection used to follow up online testing if no major areas of concern are found.

Offline Inspection & Maintenance (Level 2)

During a full offline inspection, all accessible interior and exterior areas of the bus are inspected and primary components cleaned by hand, including insulators, flexible braids

and bushings.

Cryogenic Cleaning (Level 3)

If a significant buildup of debris and contamination is expected or carbon from arcing is present, cryogenic cleaning can be performed to thoroughly clean the interior of the bus.

BUS DUCT LIFE EXTENSION

If concerns are uncovered during bus duct testing, inspection and/or bus duct maintenance, RMS Energy can develop an engineered solution to mitigate the problems to improve the condition of the bus duct system and extend the serviceable life.

Upgrades to retrofit new technology into an aging system can provide better reliability for the future without a complete replacement.
