When your car suffers a mechanical breakdown or you have an accident, unless your last name is Rockefeller you don’t run out and buy a new one, you take it in for an estimate and have it repaired. If you’re smart, you also take your vehicle in for periodic tune-ups in order to prevent larger issues down the road. So why not do the same thing when your industrial or commercial circuit breakers, network protectors, load break switches or contactors fail or need maintenance work?
We know all too well that when industrial/commercial circuit breakers fail the replacement cost can be astronomical. Whether it’s a lone General Electric AK Series circuit breaker, a couple of Westinghouse contactors, a large piece of switchgear loaded with Cutler-Hammer DS breakers, a group of Siemens ground & test devices or a lineup of Square D load break switches, no matter the manufacturer sooner or later your electrical equipment will require either maintenance or repair. That’s why Electric Control Equipment Company offers industry-leading, rapid evaluation and repair services for all of you industrial and commercial electrical gear.
ECEC is a consortium of circuit breaker experts with decades of knowledge and experience gained from working closely with the manufacturers themselves, ECEC is well-versed in dealing with Westinghouse, Allis Chalmers, Siemens Allis, Federal Pacific/Federal Pioneer, General Electric, ITE/ABB and Cutler Hammer and others. We understand functions, types, components, voltage ratings, ampere ratings, ampere interrupting capacity, testing, electrical arc, effects of current flow, thermal energy, magnetic trip elements and every other detail behind the proper functioning of all your circuit breakers and associated electrical equipment.
You can send your equipment to Electric Control or we can arrangement shipping for you if necessary. Once we receive your circuit breaker(s) or other equipment, we will test and evaluate it for absolutely free and provide you with a copy of an industry certified test report and a detailed quote for the item’s repair. Our expert technicians will indicate whether any new or replacement parts – such as vacuum interrupters, bottles, trip units, relays, coils, etc. – are needed, whether the item should be completely remanufactured or reconditioned, or if a simple clean, lube adjust and test is all that’s required. Remember, the initial evaluation and test report is completely free of charge and applying periodic maintenance to aging equipment is a very wise plan.
ECEC takes pride that in an industry where replacement costs are so high; we offer a free service designed to have you up and running quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. Through our exchange and rental programs, we also can provide you with a working piece of equipment while your is in the shop. Finally, don’t forget to consider evaluation services for any of your mothballed and extra electrical equipment currently not in service. There is tremendous value in having us evaluate and repair this gear for you to use as a spare, often alleviating costly emergency situations by having a fully operational piece of equipment at hand.
