Electronic Restoration >> Storm Damage

In the event of a severe thunderstorm that causes damage to a retail building or even if it is in a single family dwelling. In this Storm Damage cause extensive damage to electronic equipment, this equipment should be taken to an electronic restoration facility. Possibly one that is owned by a reputable water restoration company. The thorough cleaning could be performed and a complete restoration and repair if necessary. These are the steps that they take.

  1. When there is a problem with some piece of electronic equipment, the manufacturer should be consulted, like, on the correct selection of cleaning agents which could remove impurities without damaging the delicate conformal coating. The manufacturer should also be contacted relative to the exact testing required of sophisticated electronic equipment that is containing, for example, microprocessors and chips. The overall power electronic equipment assembly (switchgear) may be able to be Storm Damage refurbished provided careful steps are planned out in the thorough cleaning, drying, and testing of the electronic equipment prior to applying power. This could require input and advice from the original manufacturer.
  2.  An area of particular concern is the maintenance and upkeep of the dielectric properties of Storm Damage insulation. In the field application of medium voltage electronic equipment, for example, the standoff insulators are subjected to a wide variety of high voltage surges. Such insulators could need replacement. Items that will be requiring complete replacement are the fuses, the electronic trip units of the low voltage power circuit breakers. The items that may possibly be reconditioned by a trained Storm Damage personnel in the consultation with the original manufacturer are the alternating current high-voltage circuit breakers and the low voltage power circuit breakers.
  3.  Also the protective relays, meters, and current transformers should be replaced along with the low voltage switchgear, the medium voltage switchgear and the transformers and. In Exposure of transformers to Storm Damage can cause corrosion and insulation damage to the transformer core and the winding. The ability of the electronic transformer to perform its intended function in a safe manner may also be impaired by debris and toxic chemicals which may be deposited inside the transformer during a thunderstorm induced flood. Water damage and contaminates also can damage transformer protective fluids. The items requiring complete replacement are all of the dry-type transformers regardless of kVA ratings and all of the dry type control circuit transformers.
  4. When any electronic equipment wire or cable product is exposed to water, or any metallic component like the conductor, metallic shield, or armor will be subject to corrosion that can damage the component itself and could cause termination failures. If Storm Damage remains in medium voltage cable, it could accelerate insulation deterioration, causing premature failure. Electronic equipment wire and cable that is listed for only dry locations could become a shock hazard, when energized, after being exposed to water damage. If it is suspected that the Storm Damage water has unusual amounts of contaminants, such as could be found in some flood water, the manufacturer shall be consulted prior to any decision is made to continue using any wire or cable products.
