60+ Years Of Low & High Voltage Expertise
We offer acceptance and maintenance testing for low, medium and high voltage (480 V - 500 kV) electrical systems, for both overhead and underground equipment. We have experts in cable testing and fault testing for underground and underwater systems. We also offer testing for switchgears and switchboards, power transformers, ground-fault protection systems, ground resistance, low & high voltage breakers, protective relays, direct current (battery) systems, insulation oils, and co-generation acceptance.
"Electrical equipment deterioration is normal, and equipment failure is inevitable. However, equipment failure can be delayed through appropriate Electrical Preventative Maintenance Programs" - National Fire Protection Agency Standard 70B.
Hampton Tedder has been a trusted maintenance provider for over 60 years. We are experts in maintaining electrical power equipment to not only meet, but exceed it's expected lifespan. The typical maintenance schedule for the average system is 3 years, but depending on the critical nature of your system, you may need it more frequently.
We offer an array of online services to monitor and verify your electrical system is operating acceptably. The online services we offer include Partial Discharge (PD) testing, infrared scanning (thermography), load recording, power quality analysis, insulating oil analysis (DGA), EMF surveys, corona surveys, and detailed visual inspection by qualified experts.
Studies & Analysis
From the early days of hand-written calculations to today's latest software innovations, we have performed thousands of studies and analysis spanning 6 decades. Our areas of expertise include power consumption surveys, power quality analysis, protection coordination studies, arc-flash & short circuit analysis.
