Equipment failures in industries as well as commercial establishments are quite common due to various reasons including lightning. Due to the high impact of failures during a lightning, it is always considered as a permanent threat to industry.It is also mandatory as per standard to check and record the effectiveness of various components used in LPS. Metal components used in LPS used to corrode after some time due to environmental effects. A corroded part in an LPS is highly dangerous during a lightning strike and can create fire and life threat to the entire building.LPCI’s evaluation service find out the effectiveness of existing LPS and recommend the modifications required to protect the building form Lightning. Modern electronic installations need enhanced protection from time to time. Installation of electronic equipment (such as cameras, computers, TV etc) in old and existing building need a through study and planning to avoid failures.
LPCI's evaluation services are used in
- Different kind of Industries
- Hospitals while installing new and expensive equipment as well as routine evaluation as per the standard
- Schools and educational institutions
LPCI’s evaluation service covers inspection of physical building, Risk assessment calculation and finding out the EM threats in the building, Soil resistivity check, Inspection of air terminal, down conductor and earthing. Contact resistivity check of each metallic connections, Checking of the feasibility of Common Bonding Network, Spatial shielding calculations, Safety and separation distance calculations, Checking the effectiveness of Screening and Coordinated SPD’s, Resistivity of all earth pits, advising corrosion resistance measures and so on.
