Mersen’s Arc Flash Solutions Brochure
If previous statistics hold true, the explosive energy released during arcing faults will send more than 2,000 workers to burn centers this year.

An arc flash event can occur in any type of plant, and can result from something as simple as a tool accidentally dropped on an energized part. The cost to human life is incalculable. The cost to a business,
in medical expenses, equipment replacement and downtime, can easily exceed $1 million.

That cost can also include significant fines. OSHA continues to be vigilant, using the requirements of NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, to judge whether an employer “acted reasonably” in protecting its workers from arc flash hazards.

Mersen has been heavily involved with arc flash testing and research, and we have a wealth of experience to share. Mersen's Arc Flash Solutions Brochure includes information on what happens during an arc flash event, reducing arc flash hazards, arc flash regulations, and fuses for arc flash mitigation.
