Although by law electrical equipment must be maintained to prevent danger, the type and frequency of equipment checks and inspections needed will differ depending on the equipment, environment, and previous maintenance results. Ultimately, prevention is better than cure, so it is important to uphold regular maintenance on your equipment to ensure safety and optimum levels of operational efficiency are upheld.
As a matter of health and safety, regular maintenance should be taken seriously and carried out often enough to ensure there is little chance the equipment will become unsafe between checks. Whilst sometimes viewed as purely a costly exercise, maintenance can actually add value as a properly serviced industrial machine has the ability to run at full capacity and work as well as when it first arrived.
It is good practice to make a decision on how often each piece of equipment should be checked. This information should be recorded and checks should be carried out accordingly, followed by recording of the results. Frequency of checks can be altered according to the number and severity of faults found.

Performing regular maintenance to on-site equipment can often identify areas where further efficiencies could be made. Once identified, Powerstar will assist you in developing a robust maintenance and servicing strategy to ensure performance continues to improve. Most high voltage (HV) equipment manufacturers will recommend adequate timescales for when maintenance is required, and Powerstar can accommodate any frequency requested. In general, maintenance would be carried out over a rolling programme, usually lasting around four years.
