What is the Life Expectancy of Arc-rated Protective Clothing?
JM Test SystemsBaton Rouge, LA
Why should we be so particular about the care of this clothing and concerned about its life expectancy? Because we want to ensure that it will be able to withstand the arc flash intensity for which it is rated for the useful life of the garment. If it is improperly laundered, cared for or worn out, it may fail at a much lower energy level resulting in injury to the wearer.
Infrared inspections of building exteriors often rely on solar loading to create temperature differentials necessary to detect damage or defects. A common challenge for thermographers is inspecting building elevations that do not receive direct sunlight.
