Mining, Oil & Gas

Electronic VSDs are extensively utilized by the Mining and Oil & Gas industries for the speed control of electric motors. Modern VSDs are becoming ever more sensitive to surges and transient currents. Transient currents are the most frequent reason for VSD failures and as a result the loss of production, increasing maintenance costs, and significant revenue losses.

Lightning is responsible for significant economic and personal costs in the Mining, Oil, & Gas industries. Risk reduction can be attained by utilizing the lighting hazard mitigation and a safety planning process.

Lyncole provides on-site detailed lighting hazard risk assessments where our engineers gather all necessary data, make necessary observations, run soil tests and interview appropriate on-site personnel to fully complete the risk mitigation and safety planning assessment. This process is conducted with engineers knowledgeable in the requirements and recommendations of the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) in the area of electrical safety and grounding.

Additionally, Lyncole’s Total Site and Facility Protection Systems include, grounding, lightning protection, surge suppression, and lightning warning systems leaving industry leaders with the confidence that they have done all they can to protect their personal, equipment, and operations.

 

Lightning Warning is a key part of Total Site and Facility Protection for sensitive electronics
