Arc Flash injuries include severe burns which destroy skin tissue and other organs, huge pressure wave blasts that can throw the victim several feet, hearing loss and even death.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Arc flash is an explosion generated when a current short-circuits through air, ionizing it to form a superheated plasma. The temperatures generated can often exceed 5000 degrees F, and have been known to reach as high as 35,000 degrees in a few thousandths of a second. The sudden expansion of air from the heating causes a pressure wave to blast away from the arc fault, carrying drops of molten metal and hitting surfaces with forces of several hundred pounds per inch.
Arc Flash injuries include severe burns which destroy skin tissue and other organs, huge pressure wave blasts that can throw the victim several feet, hearing loss and even death. Now there’s no need to invest hours researching the appropriate printer and labeling supplies. The DuraLabel TORO Arc Flash Labeling Kit gives you everything to begin creating custom arc flash labels.
The Arc Flash Labeling kit contains:
- TORO printer and software
- Premium vinyl tape, Orange, 2” x 140”
- Arc Flash labels Red/Danger, 4” x 6” (200 each)
- Arc Flash labels Orange/Warning, 4” x 6” (200 each) with template box
- Premium ribbon Black, 4.3” x 361’
In the past, the NFPA required little information on arc flash labels. Aside from OSHA requirements, only incident energy and personal protective equipment (PPE) needed to be displayed. The new 2012 NFPA 70E standards require much more information.
Displaying arc flash calculations on industrial labels offers valuable safety information to other electrical workers, inspectors and emergency responders who will likely work on or around the equipment you label. When the minimum arc rating for clothing is clearly printed on an arc flash label, a worker immediately knows what combination of clothes must be worn.
All of DuraLabel's Arc Flash Labels are specially formatted for printing with the DuraSuite software. Each DuraLabel Printer comes bundled with DuraSuite, making it easy to print professional quality arc flash labels with all the required NFPA 70E information. Software included with all DuraLabel printers allows large documents to be tiled into poster-size signs - eliminating size limitations.
