Function of Du Pont Nomex LLT Arc Save flash suits

The protection provided from Nomex Arc Flash suites gives a person the benefit of a few seconds to escape the Arc flash, by preventing the burning of skin. The main characteristic of Nomex material is to self extinguish. ( FR – Inherently flame retardant – not treated).

DuPont™ Nomex® fibre is inherently flame-resistant, will not melt or drip, and does not support combustion in the air, thus providing excellent arc flash protection. And because the protection is woven right into Nomex® garments, it cannot wear off of wash out over time.

When exposed to the intense heat typical of electric arc, Nomex® fibre carbonises and thickens. This increases the protective barrier between the heat source and the wearer’s skin and helps minimise burn injury.

Nomex Arc flash suites should always be worn when operating high voltage systems for example

11kv, 22kv or 33kv systems in applications such as switchgear inside Substations. (eg. 132kv/11kv) This is to protect against the potential hazard of an arc flash.

The correct arc flash risk assessment needs to be carried out before an ATPV – Arc Thermal

Performance value can be determined. The greater the ATPV value.

LLT Save Arc flash ratings :

An electrical arc flash is more severe with higher voltages & higher fault level ratings of the equipment (switchgear) substation. The greater the flash, the greater the severity of the radiation exposed to the operator.  It is imperative to get the correct grading of the Nomex Flash suite to ensure the necessary protection against radiation of the Arc flash.

LLT Save Arc Thermal Performance values (ATPV) :

• 12+ CAL. (Conti)
• 21+ CAL (Conti )
• 25+ CAL. (Conti)
• 55+ CAL Arc
• 65+ CAL.
• 100 + CAL.
• 140 + CAL.

Arc Thermal Performance value (ATPV value) is presented in calories per centimeter square and represents the maximum capability possible from an arc flash protection for particular clothing.

Characteristics of Arc fabric :

Absorbs Heat Energy

The fiber itself absorbs heat energy during the carbonization process.

Eliminate Air Movement and Heat Transfer

The fibers eliminate air movement and heat transfer to the interior skin area.

Insulating Barrier

An insulating barrier reduces heat transfer to the person.

The user must perform a Hazard Risk Assessment to determine the level of exposure and need.  This task can be accomplished with the proper training and software. Professional assistance is available on request.

Applications with lower voltages and lower fault levels have lower energy levels. Electricians working on distribution boards in various factories , mining and industries with lower voltage applications are not free from arc flash occurrences. Although lower voltages are less likely to jump across phases , when these do occur the arc flash can be just as harmful when the conditions allow.   Arc flash occurrences are a factor of the   distance between the phases and from the source ( transformer) , the circuit breakers trip time, the available short circuit current, dirt buildup in the equipment which may affect the conductive path, moisture (humidity), circuit supply voltage, amount of motor contribution during a fault, indoor versus outdoor applications and the distance

of the user from the switchgear.

Safety switching equipment (kit) for ATPV 65 CAL Arc flash suits :

ARC Flash suits should be accompanied by medium voltage insulated products when switching in on live equipment. This insulated safety equipment protects the user from the presence of voltage whilst arc flash clothing protects the user from arc flash causing excessive heat and arc flash blasts.

Insulated safety products prevent the voltage from passing through the operator. This includes safety equipment to test the presence of live equipment and insulation equipment rated to the correct operating voltage. That includes insulated rubber gloves and rubber boots, to protect from the presence of low, medium and high voltage.

Application

ATPV 74 CAL/cm2 fall into category HRC 4 arc flash protection.   The user must perform a Hazard Risk Assessment to determine the level of exposure and need.  This task can be accomplished with the proper training and software. Professional assistance is available on request.

The electrician should be protected from head to toe. The ATPV 74 CAL Headkit has a tinted visor that protects from thermal effects, conductor shrapnel and blinding light generated from the arc. ATPV 74 CAL Jackets and trousers are available in two piece. ATPV 74 CAL Gloves are designed to provide maximum dexterity so that the electrician’s work is not inhibited. Should be worn with rubber insulated gloves & 20000v boots provide the insulation for live work conditions and a bag holds all the equipment together.

Medium voltage applications with significant electrical energy levels. Multi-layered Protera. Arc flashes occur when electricity jumps across the phases and cause a short circuit and subsequent flash. Arc flash occurrences are a factor of the distance between the phases and distance from the source ( transformer) , the circuit breakers trip time, the available short circuit current, dirt buildup in the equipment which may affect the conductive path, moisture (humidity), circuit supply voltage, amount of motor contribution during a fault, indoor versus outdoor applications and the distance of the operator from the switchgear.

Electricians working  on  distribution boards  in  various  substations, factories  and  mines  switchgear  with medium voltage applications are at risk from arc flash occurrences. Medium voltages have the necessary potential to jump across phases, when these do occur the arc flash can be just as severe and harmful a higher voltages when the conditions allow.

To provide adequate protection, the electrician should be protected from head to toe. The ATPV 55 CAL headkit has a tinted visor that protects from thermal effects, conductor shrapnel and blinding light generated from the arc.

Components of the ATPV 140 CAL ARC Flash suit

Application

The ARC140B Arc Flash Suit from Oberon is designed to provide protection from Arc Flash heat exposures. The suit exceeds the requirements of NFPA 70E Hazard Risk Category 4 (HRC 4), up to 140 cal/cm². The materials used are manufactured with 57% Para-Aramid, 19% Meta-Aramid, 19% Melamine and 5% Polybenzimidazole (PBI) fiber and a layer of Kevlar.

This standard is the beginning to a new era in high-level Arc protection. The window and suit tested to a V50 of 712 ft/sec with a ballistic threat using a .22″ fragment, and 789 ft/sec with a .308″ fragment. Only Oberon, in combination with their ArcX polycarbonate window, can now provide this level of protection for a complete suit. A propionate window cannot provide this level of impact protection.

Oberon’s ARC140B suit is Inherently Flame Resistant (FR). It will remain Flame Resistant after years of frequent and repeated laundering. ARC140 is the lightest weight Arc Flash suit in the market at this protection level. The outer surface of the shield window is scratch resistant coated to last longer. The inner surface of the shield is Anti-fog coated for clearer visibility.

The 32” Coat protects from Arc flash heat exposure and is constructed of materials that are Inherently Flame Resistant. The Bib-Overalls protect from Arc flash heat exposure and are constructed of materials that are Inherently Flame Resistant.
