plumbing and electrical incidents

plumbing & electrical incidents

Arc's investigation into plumbing failures typically begins with metallurgical interpretation of the failed part. Our analysis into these types of incidents often includes a wide range of technical skills. We may augment services with additional expertise from mechanical engineers and journeymen plumbers. Additionally, with complex industrial processes, control and instrumentation expertise may be required.

The products and associated materials handled in Arc's plumbing and electrical investigations are widespread and include the following:

  • brass & copper
  • stainless steel
  • rubber
  • plastic
  • ceramics

Arc's input into electrical incidents typically is in conjunction with fire cause and origin investigators or with electrical engineers specializing in these types of investigations. Arc has a number of laboratory ovens, power supplies and optical microscopes which can be used in support of electrical investigations. X-ray capabilities are available.
