Testing of Portable Earthing

PBwel supply a large range of portable clamps for up to 400kV use, these can also be returned for maintenance or repairs. Our quality engineer will check that the operating screws and threads are working correcting and free from debris, we will also check the screws and plates. The main body and jaws will be checked for major cracks and damaged elements to ensure that the clamp is fit for use. The testing of portable earthing is of vital importance, as these products are safety critical, and must be in fully operational use to provide adequate levels of safety.

Aluflex Leads

We can also supply Aluflex leads in any length required in a range of sizes including 50sqmm, 120sqmm and 150sqmm. We can also supply Copper leads depending upon size and quantity required. When leads are returned for testing or repairs we will check the PVC sheath for any kinks, tears or nicks. We will also check by hand that the internal stranding is intact and flexible. The lugs will be compressed correctly onto the leads, and we will undertake a resistance test on all leads.

 

Alternatively, PBwel offer a training course on the repair and maintenance of Portable Earthing equipment whereby we can visit your stores and discuss requirements with you personally.
