Electrical operations and Maintenance 

We hard work 24/7 for buildings to make them comfortable, functional, efficient, and safe. facade engineering (such as building shading requirements). Fire safety, detection, and protection. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC). 

We IPAB Facility Management services, keen to provide quality services and maintenance which include the installation, servicing, repair, and maintenance of electrical and electronic equipment for industrial, commercial, and domestic purposes. 

Our Expertise in Electrical operations and maintenance is "Preventive Maintenance of electrical machines"

  • Troubleshooting, Fault Finding, and Repair of Electrical Panels, Electrical Equipment, CNC Machines, Manufacturing Machines, Compressors

  • OSD Process equipment's like Tablet Compression, Capsule filling machines and Check weigher, RMG, FBE, Tablet Coating machine, Blisters and bottle packing lines, pass box, LAF.

  • Maintenance and operation of Utility and HVAC equipment’s like chiller, Air compressor, AHU, cooling towers, Hot water generation system

  • Maintenance and operations like Motor, PCC and MCC panels, transformer, drives, sensors, valves, pumps, Blowers, and all electrical related equipment maintenance.

  • Breakdown and preventive maintenance of OSD process equipment

  • Adherence to Standard Operating Procedures, Safety, cGMP, GDP, GEP and EHS requirements.

  • Issue of work permits for every activity

Electrical maintenance Program

Electrical preventative maintenance routines should be developed in consultation with licensed electrical
contractors. They should include, as a minimum, the following:

  • Switches and Disconnects: Switches and disconnects having a rating of 300 amps or over and equipment greater than 600V should have maintenance completed every 3 to 5 years. Equipment greater than 13.8 kV should be evaluated every 1 to 3 years.

  • All main switches should be maintained every 3 to 5 years: Using a rotating schedule, switches and disconnects should be tested and calibrated, bolts tightened, and contact surfaces tested (Ductor).

  • Infrared thermography: Surveys should be conducted every 1 to 3 years by a specialized contractor.

The findings report with corrective actions should be maintained on-site.

  • Circuit breakers: These should be mechanically exercised on an annual basis to ensure they are not binding.

  • If binding breakers are discovered, they will require cleaning, lubrication, and possibly calibration (by a qualified  electrical contractor). For higher voltage breakers (over 220 volts), a qualified the electrician should be contracted to perform the mechanical exercising of the breakers.

  • Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets should be installed in areas near water (i.e. bathrooms and kitchens) and in exterior areas to reduce the severity of electric shocks. GFCIs should be tested monthly by plugging in a device and pushing the test button; if the device does not turn off, then the GFCI is faulty and should be replaced.

  • Baseboard heaters should be checked regularly for excessive dust and nearby combustibles Inspections

Property managers should have basic electrical safety inspection checklists, which can be part of the overall
Premises safety and tenant unit inspections. These checklists should flag: Excessive loading on circuits (e.g. numerous appliances plugged into a single receptacle)

  • Power bar piggybacking (e.g. power bars plugged into one another)

  • Inadequate grounding

  • Extension cords used as permanent wiring (extension cords are designed for temporary use and should not be used under carpets or across doorways)

  • Older wiring that may be frayed, cracked, or damaged

  • Broken outlets or switches (if hot, there is likely a problem)

  • Combustible storage that is less than three feet away from electrical equipment including breaker panels and transformers

  • Any deficiencies should be addressed immediately and/or the circuit should be turned off. Only licensed electricians should perform electrical repair work.

Signs of Problems
The following are signs of problems with electrical systems:

  • Fuses or circuits that trip frequently indicate overloading of the circuit or possibly faulty electrical wiring or equipment

  • Dim or flickering lights can be a sign of a loose connection in a lighting circuit, fixture, or electrical service.

  • Missing third prongs, or two-to-three prong adaptors do not offer adequate grounding and represent a shock hazard

  • Damaged cords can lead to exposed wiring and represent a shock and fire hazard

  • Interior extension cords used outside of the use of extension cords as permanent wiring are a fire hazard

Main Electrical Rooms
Main electrical rooms should:

  • Not contain any combustible storage

  • Have monitored smoke detection to provide an early warning of fire

  • Be equipped with CO2 extinguishers designed for Class C electrical fires since they will prevent damage to sensitive equipment if there is a fire
