Chemical Facility - Arc Flash Hazard Analysis

The project involved the data collection and modeling of a chemical facility electrical system. Electrical studies were performed on the system modeled in SKM Power Tools. Shock hazard and arc flash hazard were analyzed, and the hazards were documented in a report and equipment labels. The system was approximately 350 data points.

Scope of Work

  • Collect electrical system data.
  • Develop system reports and document data.
  • Model in SKM Power Tools software the electrical system data.
  • Perform a short circuit analysis of the electrical system.
  • Perform a shock hazard analysis and arc flash hazard analysis.
  • Generate a report and letter documenting results.
  • Print equipment labels from shock and arc flash hazard analysis.
  • Apply labels and integrate with safety program including employee training.

Engineering Services

  • Developed preliminary electrical oneline.
  • Performed fault current study.
  • Evaluated hazards of electric shock and arc flash.
  • Performed an arc flash hazard analysis (IEEE 1584 and NFPA 70E).
  • Generated arc flash hazard report.
  • Provided documentation stating key assumptions, clarifications, and possible system improvements.
  • Provided compliant warning labels to specified equipment (NEC-2011 Section 110.16).
